Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Indiyah Polack turned heads as they graced the much-anticipated Notting Hill Carnival in west London.
The event, an annual celebration of the British Caribbean community in the UK, saw stars stepping out in bold and daring ensembles.
Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 31, stole the show in a mesmerizing feathered bodysuit that channeled her inner showgirl.
Her black beaded one-piece, combined with netted gloves adorned with red, yellow, and green feathers, highlighted her stunning figure. Leigh-Anne’s Instagram showcased her confidence as she strutted her stuff at the vibrant carnival.
Indiyah Polack, known from Love Island, left little to the imagination with her bejeweled string bodysuit, which matched her boyfriend Dami Hope’s shirtless look.
Her outfit, a rainbow of jewels covering a daring one-piece, accentuated her curves and caught the eye of many.
The couple made a striking entrance as they headed to the carnival.
The carnival’s second day featured a performance by music legend Shaggy.
The crowd was treated to classic hits like “It Wasn’t Me” and “Angel,” as well as new material from Shaggy’s EP “In The Mood.”
The iconic Saxon, Rampage, and Horniman stages hosted the energetic performance, with Shaggy expressing his joy at returning to his roots.
BBC Radio 1 star Nick Grimshaw also joined the festivities, sharing snaps from the carnival’s first day.
Lily Allen, taking a break from her theatre show, made a quirky appearance, dancing and enjoying the street performers.
The carnival, known as Europe’s largest street party, drew an estimated two million attendees over the bank holiday weekend.
The event encapsulated the vibrant spirit of Caribbean culture, with floats, feathered bands, and colorful samba dancers parading through the streets of London.
The festival’s history dates back to the late 1950s and 60s, evolving from a community-focused celebration to a large-scale extravaganza featuring sound systems and mas bands.
Notably, this year’s parade marked the celebration of “adults day,” emphasizing dancing and partying.
Additionally, the festival commemorated the 75th anniversary of the docking of HMT Empire Windrush, a significant moment in Caribbean history.
The event’s transformation into a massive spectacle owes much to the introduction of sound systems and mas bands 50 years ago.
Despite the festive atmosphere, authorities also took precautions.
The Metropolitan Police implemented a section 60 order, granting officers additional search powers, following intelligence about weapons.
Nonetheless, the celebration remained a vibrant and joyous occasion, honoring the rich heritage of Caribbean culture through music, dance, and community spirit.
