I love this salon! At Cheeky on Redchurch Street, you can get your nails done while having something delicious to eat. If you have a full manicure they give you a Cheeky nail polish of your choice to take home! It’s a very modern throwback to the old-fashioned beauty parlour. It’s a place that peopleContinue reading
I am quite obsessed with skin care and it’s really important to look after your skin, especially when one could use an extra boost of hydration during the winter. I’ve always been a little bit confused about essential oils and weren’t sure if they were really necessary or doing anything. Recently I’ve been using DarphinContinue reading
This shoot was quite a huge production as we shot in Switzerland with photographer Damien Krisl with set design by Sylvain CabouatI. We shot in a film studio as we had so many different set ups and we needed a swimming pool for one of the shots. It was quite a big production and itContinue reading
Nail polish has gotten more complicated and there are so many choices – it makes it hard to choose. That’s why I’m aways happy when I receive a new nail polish in a gift bag. At first I wasn’t too sure about the colour – it was a bit too neutral for me and whatContinue reading
One of the most important parts of doing a fashion show is the hair and make up test. Today we did the hair and makeup test for Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch designers: Patrick Li, Yeashin, and Yulia Kondranina. To prepare for their show over the past few months the designers have been collecting imagesContinue reading
Attending a wedding is one of the best ways to celebrate the weekend and the New Year. It’s life and love affirming plus you get to dress up! I was surprised how many women wore black and many of the women regarless of age wore little fur or fake jackets or stoles – actually evenContinue reading
I met Corrie Nielsen a few seasons ago and I knew that I wanted to work with her and be part of her team. This season Corrie collaborated with the Royal Botanic Gardens and was able to see Kew’s seed libraries, original documentation of Charles Darwin, galleries and a vast catalogue of images. The moodboardContinue reading
I styled the models for a mini catwalk show for Jergens and the lovely Louise Roe was the host. I’m a huge fan of Louise, I met her a few years ago when I was styling William Tempest’s show in New York and she was hosting his dinner party. She’s just one of those girlsContinue reading
If you want good hair then you need a good hair stylist! Backstage at Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch show there is a team of hairstylists and every one of them is essential. This team from Toni & Guy was great, they were so fast and efficient that all 18 models had their hairContinue reading
It’s rare but sometimes I buy something despite its branding. I recently bought Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors Collection – Rainbow in the S-Kylie, which is a clear base polish with a mix of muliti colur glitter – it also make a great topcoat! Even though I have several OPI nail polishes I bought itContinue reading
I love the retro powder room. These images are from One Whitehall Place, The Royal Horseguards Hotel. The chaise long, the mirrors and the vanity desks give you the impression that you’re in a time forgotten or a film set and you just want to have dramatic event or intense girly conversation like Marilyn MonroeContinue reading
I was really looking forward to seeing Ziad Ghanem‘s show at Fashion Scout as I hadn’t seen one of his shows for several season as I was usually casting for another show when his was on. This show was one of my favourite shows. It felt happy, like an event, and it was one! ToContinue reading
This is BFC Tent at 5:30am in the morning, before the teams start to arrive for Paul Costelloe’s show. The finally touches for the catwalk are all finished by 6am – it’s still considered a building site until 6am so the teams can’t arrive any earlier. This is the hair and makeup area and there’sContinue reading
I’ve worked with make up artist Lan Nguyen for several years and we’ve done lots of shows and editorials together. It’s great to work with people that you know and trust. When you work with people you know you don’t become complacent or lazy – you actually work harder! Lan used lots of colour andContinue reading
