Joanne Black on the Somerset House Ice Rink

Where: Somerset House
Joanne Black Style: Stella McCartney black polo, black and white cape and Daniela Besso merino wool and cashmere mix coat, with knee length Miu Miu black boots and YSL bag.

If you’re looking for a spot of cool ice rink fashion, look no further than Somerset House.

Everyone from Penny Lancaster and Trinny Woodall to Alexa Chung and Lily Cole – dressed in warm winter glamour – descended on Somerset House on Monday night to celebrate the start of the ice rink’s tenth anniversary season. Thandie Newton, who turned on the Tiffany tree, looked particularly fab in a feathered black hat with great red shoes and a cool red clutch.

Of course, less stylish were the moves on show at the newly iced rink. While designers Julien McDonald and Melissa Odabash took to the ice like professionals, I was left clinging to my friend Jonathan as I attempted to complete two laps. For a total beginner I think I was lucky my Daniela Besso coat didn’t have a rather icy encounter. Actually, I think I might be back later on in the season for a solo skate!
