Those of us in the United Kingdom are used to a plothering of rain and some unseemly brisk weather, however, approximately once a season, we get a bountiful snowfall which leaves us besotted. Baby, it's cold outside and we now need to wear everything warm in our cupboards that we've been hoarding away all year. I happen to like a fuzzy scarf and my good ole Ugg boots, but a hat is something I'll never really warm up to. It compromises my peripheral vision and I simply find them uncomfortable. What is your favourite Winter item that you are excited to wear when it snows?

Alesha Dixon wore it to the audition show for Britain's Got Talent in Birmingham and Made in Chelsea reality star Amber Atherton was spotted in it at the Fashion East show.

Justin Bieber walked the purple carpet last night at the Never Say Never premiere at London's O2. He attracted thousands of young fans to the venue for the chance of a glimpse of the 16-year-old. He's caused headlines with his recent Rolling Stone interview in which he criticises the US healthcare system, talks sex and declared he's against abortion, though last night he was just excited to see his fans. Bieber Fever spread to James Corden at the Brits, and last night Justin got a hug from Craig David, who he said is an influence on him, while Jessie J also showed up to check out the documentary.
The red carpet at the Brits tonight was full of eyecatching gowns on female stars from music and TV.

Eliza Doolittle wore some bright wedges and a splash of colour on her minidress, Rihanna went all out in her bright ensemble, while Lisa Snowdon showed off her amazing figure in a short neon yellow dress.
