It was Club Tropicana night at Selfridges, Birmingham on Friday, and the drinks were most definitely free! To celebrate the launch of Birmingham Pride, the Selfridges menswear department, in collaboration with Attitude Magazine, laid out the pink carpet and treated us to a feast of the most gorgeous male models imaginable wearing little more than a pair of designer pants.
The event was sexy fun from start to finish. Two leading drag queens sorted out the guest list and posed for photographs with the guests, whilst a 1980s style roller girl amazed with her dancing and skating prowess. Brazilian Fantasy again bought a touch of Rio to the night. A bar was conjuring up coconut based cocktails and glasses of champagne, whilst the guests enjoyed treatments that were on offer. There were complimentary eyebrow treatments from Blink Brow Bar, spray tans from Fake Bake, skin care consultations from Dermalogica and wet shaves from Umberto Gianni.
Then it was onto the fashion show. Making the best use of an escalator ever (What an entrance) the male models made their grand entrance. Tanned and toned to perfection, they modelled the latest underwear collections from the likes of Bjorn Borg, Aussiebum, Calvin Klein and James Tudor. They also modelled a great range of beach shorts, sunglasses and flip-flops that were perfect for summer hols.
Fashion show over, it was left to the DJ to pump out more Ibiza style tunes and more champagne to flow. This was a fantastic night that was a perfect curtain raiser to the Pride weekend.
