Little Mix’s PrettyLittleThing launch party – all the goss from Tulisa’s surprise duet and Aitch’s p


 Little Mix launching their new clothing line with PrettyLittleThing was never going to be a low-key affair, but the girls celebrated their latest partnership in style, with celeb guests galore  The band and PLT took over luxury wedding and events venue Aynhoe Park in Banbury, Oxfordshire, and turned it pink in honour of the big night  Big animal lovers, the girls had requested that the antique taxidermy animals, which usually adorn every room of Aynhoe, be removed for their do and the interior and exterior was instead covered in balloons, feathers, flowers and candles  The girls themselves had chosen the guestlist of their close friends and family, and posed on the red carpet in the geo-jacquard collection from their range which the band had worked closely with the brand on  The girls and their stylists, Zack Tate and Jamie McFarland, had had several meetings with the designers at PrettyLittleThing and boss Umar Kamani to ensure their unique personalities came across in their designs  Guests were brought in via pink unicorn PLT taxis, with influencers being driven down from London in a party bus with the girls’ faces and signatures down the side, where they were treated to sweets and drinks to get them in the mood to party  Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock were allocated their own VIP area (naturally), but the girls preferred to mingle with the crowds and head up to the bar themselves  Guests were treated to themed cocktails based on Little Mix songs including Black Magic, Shout Out To My Ex, The Cure and Private Show as well as champagne on arrival, and each cocktail was adorned with a photo of the girls on top  To soak up the alcohol, a giant banqueting table was laid out with an array of bread, meats, cheeses and other tempting snacks on one side of the room, while the other hosted an enormous pyramid of cocktails and a chocolate fountain with treats including marshmallows, sweets and Little Mix-branded macarons to dip into it  For guests in other areas of the venue, platters of toasties, fish and chips, tempura prawns and mini burgers were passed around – and even Perrie and Jade indulged in the mini sliders as they had their first drink  Perrie’s beau Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jesy’s boyfriend Chris Hughes were also in attendance and were seen posing for photos together while the girls were whisked off for some official photographs at the start of the party  Chris was overheard saying he had been ‘having kittens over his outfit’, after worrying that his Off-White x The Simpsons sweater would be too dressed down for the formal occasion  No launch party would be complete without a guest performer, and while the girls themselves didn’t perform on the night (they are in the middle of their tour, so a night off to enjoy being the guests of honour was very well deserved), rapper Aitch was drafted in to entertain partygoers instead  Aitch took to the stage just before midnight, as he had travelled from another gig in London earlier in the evening just to be there, performing songs including Strike A Pose, Taste (Make It Shake) and Keisha & Becky  While Perrie and Jesy decided to have an early night, Leigh-Anne and Jade jumped on stage with Aitch for a dance after having battled their way through the packed dancefloor  As well as Aitch, the remaining revellers were treated to a late-night impromptu performance by Tulisa, who joined a friend on the piano the belt out Alicia Keys’s If I Ain’t Got You To view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 video  The band’s former X Factor mentor was among the famous faces invited personally by the girls, and was seen dancing and posing for photos with them throughout the night, even jumping in a shot with Aitch  As well as The Female Boss, other guests included Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague, model Lottie Moss – who also wore one of the dresses from the collection – and influencer Felicity Hayward, who has previously starred in Little Mix’s Strip music video  The Saturdays’ Vanessa White and former JLS star Aston Merrygold and his wife Emily were there too, and the couple cosied up in the Paris-themed gif booth for some photos  The night coincided with Leigh-Anne’s mum’s birthday, so the PLT team dashed out earlier in the day to arrange a pink cake and sparklers to be brought in as a surprise for Mama Pinnock  The girls stayed over in some of the venue’s luxury bedrooms, but were on the road again in the morning, ready for their next tour date in Birmingham on Thursday – so it’s no wonder Perrie and Jesy fancied and early night  However, a night of partying is never complete without a bit of a munch before bed, and while Jesy and Chris went for a plate of cheese and ham toasties with chips, Leigh-Anne went for a (slightly rogue choice of post-party snack) chickpea curry for her late-night meal  Little Mix’s PrettyLittleThing collection is available to buy now in sizes 4-26 and prices from £12 – £100
