To celebrate, DIVA held a re-launch party at the prestigious and decadent location of The Ivy just over a week ago. We were delighted to attend and show our support for such a wonderful magazine that Megan grew up with, and that we both now hold dear to our hearts (as well as the people that work for it, having had the pleasure to get to know them over the last couple of years).
We quickly glammed up after a day of work, hopped in a car and made our way to London....
DIVA also has new columnists, 'the Fab Five', consisting of the lovely Christian singer and broadcaster Vicky Beeching, the fab UK Black Pride director Lady Phyll Poku-Gymiahm, singer Heather Peace, BBC news reader Jane Hill and actress Sophie Ward.
The event opened up with an intro by actor Charlie Condou, and passionate speeches by Linda Riley, and Editor Jane Czyzselska.
We caught up with Vicky Beeching, and discussed 'Wegan-ifying' her new flat... and admired her brogues of course...

.. Also, how hot did Whitney look? ;)
We also had great chats with many fab gay men, including gay rights activist Peter Tachtell, 'Doctor Christian' and his partner. We also met the lovely Fernando (works at DIVA and remembered working on our faces!) and his husband (such an adorable couple), as well as great business men. And we admired shoes. As you do.
All in all it was such a fun night that flew by, we were sad that it was over but excited for the future of DIVA!
