Famous Brits Celebrate the UK at Star-Studded Event

Most Popular

It goes without saying how much we simply adore our senior fashion editor, Zanna Roberts Rassi — and also how insanely jealous we are of her fabulous British accent. Last night, the super-stylish Brit hit the town alongside fellow well-known Brits at "The Big British Invite" kick-off, hosted by BritishAirways and VisitBritain.

Fashion-savvy ladies like Alexa Chung, Kate Foley, and Tali Lennox made appearances at the star-studded event, which was hosted by Downtown Abbey actor Dan Stevens and singer/songwriter Estelle. Yesterday's festivities were just the beginning of an all-weekend event celebrating the best of British culture. This weekend, thousands of New Yorkers and Englishmen and women alike will swing by "The Big British Invite"'s 15,000-square-feet downtown space, where they will catch a first-hand glimpse at what life is like on the other side of the pond. Think cocktails, food stalls, fashion advice sessions, and even live performances of the UK's most-renowned contemporary artists.
