Stars toast All Saints movie

Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox arrive for the "wrap party"

Every new achievement is worth celebrating and musician Dave Stewart's new film is no exception.

With his directing work on Honest over, Stewart and his Eurythmics partner Annie Lennox have been partying in style.

They were among a host of glamorous faces at the glitzy "wrap party" for the new movie, in London's Soho on Wednesday night.

The film stars three of the four members of the girl group All Saints, playing armed robbers in 1960s London.

Of the trio, Natalie Appleton was the only one attending the festivities. She arrived with boyfriend Johnny Lee Miller, who played "Sick Boy" in Trainspotting.

Also adding their support to the occasion was Meg Matthews, the pregnant wife of Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher. She proudly showed off her tummy in a revealing crop-top.

Honest, described as "an edgy black comedy", is Stewart's directorial debut and fulfils an ambition he has held since his Eurythmics days.

He has also co-written the movie, along with famed comedy writing partners Ian La Frenais and Dick Clement.

The three All Saints - Melanie Blatt, Nicole and Natalie Appleton - star as East End gangster sisters, Gerry, Mandy and Jo.

They dress as men and carry out a series of robberies in the West End. Nicole Appleton is also rumoured to appear topless.

Their fellow All Saint, Shaznay Lewis, turned down a part in Honest, which is due to be released next year.
