REG was one of the celebrity guests at Stella McCartney's Mayfair store to watch the annual switching on of the Christmas lights.
Other guests included Sir Bob Geldof, Sir Paul McCartney, Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Sir Peter Blake and Pam Hogg.
Jennifer Saunders was the MC for the event, launching into her famous Ab-Fab character, Edina Monsoon, and making a speech in which she made reference to last seeing Paul McCartney "in a cupboard in Berlin in the Sixties", as well as noting the fact that "there were plenty of old models there, including Kate Moss" who, in Edina's opinion, was clearly past her best.
Edina then introduced a special mystery guest, Emma Bunton of the Spice Girls -- although she initially got her name wrong and called her "Baby Bunton" from Girls Aloud. Emma then hit the switch to light up the store.
There was traditional Christmas fare, such as mince pies, Christmas cookies, Charbonnel and Walker chocolates.
Dame Kelly Holmes, Sharleen Spiteri, Helen Lederer (who also used to be in Absolutely Fabulous) and Mariella Frostrup were also at the event.
