Yesterday’s shoot

So yesterday I had a photoshoot with the wonderful Kirsty Walters (http://www.modelmayhem.com/2501398) and MUA Jenny Davies (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jenny-Davies-Make-up-artist-Bristol-South-Wales/367184533348903?fref=ts) and i legit nearly froze to death. It was SO COLD, as we shot on top of a car park in central Cardiff – however the results make it all worth while. The theme was one of hard, rough edges with a feminine touch.

Same Old…

So I’ve had the best time viewing all of the gowns from the Oscars, partly gushing over the designs and colours, but mostly sighing because it’s just the same thing over and over again..

Anne Hathaway just looks awful (no, i’m not the biggest Hathaway fan), and Lawrence looks incredible. Kristin Stewart looks awkward as hell, and Jennifer Aniston looks.. okay (as much as i was pleased to finally see some colour!)

So I was very happy to finally see some, not necessarily beautiful dresses, but just a little bit daring..

Maria Menounos shocking fuchsia dress is a tad tacky, but i applaud her for sticking to her personal style and adding a little colour to the red carpet!

Robin Roberts stuns in a skimpy, blinding blue gown, with a very exciting slit up the front, which I personally find a little tacky and unnecessary, but overall she looks beautiful.

Brandi Glanville…. Brandi Brandi Brandi…… why!? I just don’t see how you would feel the need to show SO much skin.. I mean the overall design is stunning, the colour, the fit, but why can’t the plunge line just be a little higher? Congrats on the guts to pull this off but it’s not really doing it for me.

Find below some more of my favourites from the Oscars.

My first international collaboration

So I had my first international interview published today which is very exciting!

It is with New York based magazine ‘Lively’, and here’s the link if you care to give it a quick read! It’s titled ‘LFW confessions’.

Top pictures of the day

So I’ve come across far too many images that i’m saving to my desktop, and not really doing anything with them.. so I thought I’d share my favourite images of the day –

Firstly – I am growing an unhealthy obsession with Rihanna. I’ve always been a huge fan but my God – she’s absolutely stunning these days. And the latest pictures of her from her Instagram are something else (not condoning smoking here kids!)

Second, I am literally in shock at how Rob Kardashian is looking these days. the latest episode of Kourtney and Kim take Miami is really quite sad when Rob discusses his break up from (the horrible) Rita Ora, and explains his weight gain.. but my GOD I didn’t think it had gotten this bad. I personally don’t see anything wrong with putting on abit of weight, and especially when there’s heart break involved. Poor boy.¬†article-2281513-17E00182000005DC-443_634x1000

This picture of Kimberley Wyatt just says it all. The Pussycat Dolls were one of my favourite bands of all time, I had all their merchandise, clothes, anything you can think of. I just loved them. So it makes me happy when i see them still doing well!

Next, possibly the coolest children on the planet right now (apart from my baby sister, of course) the Beckhams.

Finally, I really think Cara needs to steady down and stay focused on being the most beautiful girl in the world right now. STOP THE article-2281455-17ABFA8A000005DC-834_634x735PARTYING CAZ!

 

 

 

Nothing can beat this moment

So my favourite supermodel of all time, Jourdan Dunn, walked in the Topshop Unique show along with Cara Delevigne, both of which were the only people who hadn’t left the show on Sunday. I decided to wait outside the show a little longer with hope that they would eventually come out – and within minutes, there they were. The most beautiful creatures walking out of the Tate, when all of a sudden about 50 full grown paparazzi men literally surround Cara, one of the scariest sights I have ever seen. However, then I hear “oh my God” – I look to my left, and there she is.. Jourdan Dunn. She had stepped out of the way of the paps, letting Cara get all her glory, so i stepped over and simply said “Jourdan – please can I take your photograph?” and with the sweetest smile and “of course you can” she posed for me.

Day 2 LFW

So day 2 consisted of basically hunting down show locations and shooting some of the most amazing celebrities and fashion bloggers out there. I can’t lie, I let out a little squeel every now and again.. and had a few panic attacks when the cars starting pulling up and the “who isit going to be!?!” and “what if I don’t get a good enough photograph!” thoughts began to pound my head, but it was so fun, and just an amazing experience. I didn’t think anything could beat Burberry last year when i photographed stars from a far – but that was smashed this season.
