Ruth Langsford has expressed her delight at opening her brand new beauty and style event in London, inviting visitors to join her for two days of “fun, fashion and fabulousness”.
The 62-year-old television presenter is best known for her roles presenting ITV’s This Morning, on which she is the longest-running presenter, and anchoring Loose Women.
Speaking at the opening of Feeling Fabulous With Ruth at London’s Old Billingsgate, Langsford said: “The day is finally here! I’m super-excited to be opening my first Feeling Fabulous event on this beautiful summer’s day and cannot wait to welcome everyone for two full days of fun, fashion and fabulousness!”
The event, which is hosted by Langsford, runs across two days and will feature catwalk shows, celebrity and expert talks, workshops, pamper experiences and shopping opportunities.
Langsford previously said that she was inspired to host the event, which is running in collaboration with QVC, after finding she struggles to buy clothes that help her remain “stylish and fashion-forward” as she gets older but also “comfortable”.
Speaking about her own clothing range, which she designed with QVC, Langsford said: “I’m probably designing things for myself if I’m honest but I think that resonates with so many women of my age group, and older, who have the same problems I have buying clothes.
“I want to remain stylish and fashion-forward, but I also want to be comfortable.
“I want to try and correct the problems that I find.”
As part of the event, visitors will be given the chance to hear from a host of special guests who will join Langsford across the weekend.
The center stage will be hosted by TV presenter Angellica Bell, with Rylan, Dragons’ Den’s Sara Davies, Anton Du Beke, Jenni Falconer, Jo Malone and Vanessa Feltz also appearing in panels and talks during the event.
Langsford, who is married to fellow TV presenter Eamonn Holmes, announced the event with a light-hearted post on her Instagram earlier this month.
In the video posted by Langsford, she can be seen running through a checklist for the Feeling Fabulous With Ruth event, when Holmes, 62, appears and asks, “Have you forgotten something or someone maybe, like me? Am I not invited?”
To which Langsford jokingly replies: “I hadn’t really thought about it. Do people want to see you there?
Retorting in the couple’s trademark banter, Eamonn says: “Well, I think they want to see me more than they want to see that Anton or that Rylan!”
Rolling her eyes, Langsford responds: “All right then, you can come.”
Holmes will join his wife on stage at the event in London.
Feeling Fabulous With Ruth is a two-day event at London’s Old Billingsgate on July 23 and 24.
