The winner of the grand prize from our Golden Ticket competition (a Fiat 500, yes really!) collected her beautiful car in London this week. Emma Stewart from Edinburgh was the very lucky lady! Some of the Lipsy girls popped along to congratulate Emma, take a few photos and give her a fab Lipsy goody bag crammed with goodies such as Lipsy perfume and cute accessories.
We couldn't help but ask Emma a few questions about winning her amazing prize and she was more than delighted to share her love for her new car and of course Lipsy!
Tell the Lipsy blog readers a bit about you...
My name's Emma Stewart, I'm 25 and live in Edinburgh. I work in a school with children that need behavioural support.
How did you feel when you won?
Shocked. I couldn't believe it,I'm never ever lucky.
Any road trips planned in your new wheels?
Well I need to drive back to Edinburgh today, which is about an 8 hour drive! I used to go to uni in Dundee so will be making regular trips to visit friends there now!
How many Lipsy dresses do you own?
Four and counting but I have lots of accessories! The watch I'm wearing today is from Lipsy, I got it for Christmas.
What did you purchase to get your Golden Ticket?
I bought a champagne coloured satin dress for a wedding from the Princes Mall Lipsy shop in Edinburgh.
Were you already a Lipsy Facebook fan before the competition?
No! The competition made me become a fan, I entered on the same day that I got my ticket.
How did you discover Lipsy?
My friend actually introduced me to Lipsy- she thought I would love it and I do! She's now very jealous of my car.
If the Lipsy girls were visiting Edinburgh where should they go?
Definitely Princes Street for shopping which is in the city centre but there's lots of nice countryside and beaches not far from city - I plan on going lots of lovely drives there!
Any final messages for the Lipsy girls?
I want to thank everyone at Lipsy as winning the car has made my year!

The Golden Globes marks the start of award season and a much anticipated injection of full on A-list glamour. This week's ceremony marked the 68th annual awards and the red carpet was awash with Hollywood elite, from IT girl of the moment Mila Kunis to the stunning Charlize Theron. Red carpet coverage didn't hit our screens till 3am but we stayed up to pick our favourite red carpet dresses and help you recreate the stars looks with our most wanted Lipsy pieces.
The nude trend that has dominated catwalks for the past few seasons is set to continue with actress Charlize Theron looking striking in a bow detail nude dress. The Lipsy bow bust cocktail dress is a favourite party dress at Lipsy, the ruched detailing gives a great shape and the nude colour is perfect for styling with metallic accessories like Charlize.
Many stars shy away from red to avoid clashing with the red carpet but George Clooney's date Stacy Keibler really stood out in a red full length gown. For sophisticated glamour the cut out halterneck maxi dress paired with black heels is spot on. Wear your hair up or pulled to the side like Stacy to show off the gorgeous back detailing.
Awards ceremony darling Mila Kunis kept it classic in a black statement dress. Opt for a sweeping gown like the one shoulder embellished maxi dress to recreate Mila's gorgeous silhouette and accessorise with waterfall earrings to add a touch of sparkle.

Step out in style this January in Lipsy's debut footwear collection.
Choose from signature statement heels, fearsome stilettos, glittering wedges, pretty pumps and the coolest jelly shoes around. Sculptural, distinctly feminine shapes meet contrasting textures and seasonal colours for shoes that are sexy, wearable and sure to get you noticed.
Step into the spotlight in tropically-inspired heels in distinct fuchsia pink and violet purple or opt for a more subtle take on the look with a nude peep toe court with coral contrast platform and jet black heel.
Get sophisticated, girlish glamour with delicately embellished platform courts or gold peep toe sparkle wedges. Wedges are always the big shoes for summer and Lipsy's strappy styles are the glamorous girls' way to wear the look.
