HELLO! Editor-in-Chief Rosie Nixon and her friend and fashion designer Tabitha Webb hosted an exclusive screening of Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard's thrilling new movie Allied at the luxurious Bvlgari Hotel in Knightsbridge on Wednesday night.

Guest of honour was Allied costume designer Joanna Johnston, who joined Rosie and Tabitha's VIP guests (including Stephanie Pratt, Sarah-Jane Mee and our lucky competition winner Lyn West), to share her experiences of creating the stunning costumes for the 1940s spectacle.

Not only did our lucky guests get to hear about Joanna's creative process (without giving too much away, her desire to make sure Marion's outfits were "very sexy" and Brad's "super elegant" were completely achieved!) they also got to see her amazing creations in real life. 

And it wasn't just our VIPs who enjoyed posing next to mannequins, dressed in suits actually worn by the movie superstars - hosts Rosie and Tabitha couldn't resist a quick photo opportunity either!

After sipping on champagne and nibbling on canapes, it was time to move into the stunning, intimate cinema to watch the action-packed movie.

"It was a thrill to host this special HELLO! VIP screening of Allied," Rosie said after the screening. "And what a film! Let's just say I'm glad I brought my tissues! As well as being full of romance and action, the movie is one of the most stylish I've seen this year and I was honoured that its esteemed costume designer joined us to share her stories and sketches. 

"Make sure Allied is on your must-see list and let us know what you think using the hashtag #Allied."

Allied hits cinemes across the UK on Friday, 25 November.
