THAT’S ME, THAT IS! *excited bounce*


So that shoot where I took you behind the scenes two weeks ago? Here it is! My first proper paid modelling gig, which is just as odd to me as it looks there in words. I know I shot the Hunter campaign, but  that was just one look. This was four separate looks, all styled by me – with a little help from the Diesel team.

I’m thrilled with how I look in Diesel’s new S/S ‘12 pre-collection. I’m not a sample size: I’m a UK14/US10 and I think it’s a strong testament to Diesel’s new female design team headed up by London’s very own Fashion East and NEWGEN designer Heikki Salonen, that the collection works as well on me as it does on a size 8 or 10.



The first shot is my favourite look because I love both the look, and my hair and make up. My father actually had to ring my sister to check it was me. Cheeky bugger. I also wanted to say a huge thank you to the hundreds of people who have Tweeted, Facebooked, emailed & SMSd their support since Grazia came out on newstand on Tuesday. I was super nervous, so thank you for all being so lovely.

You can see all the proper photos in high res here.

Also, that red lipstick is divine and I’m in love with that photo of you and that gigantic dog! I’m not sure who was walking who there…

OMG OMG Sasha, you look GORGEEEEEOUUUS!!!! The coffee shot is my favourite, your facial pose does look similar to Greta Garbo’s, maybe it’s the red lips.

I must grab a copy!!!!

You look stunning Sasha and it is great to see brands move more and more into using real people instead of models :)

STUNNING, and great collection. I feel you need to have a word with Donatella about a few things… she may learn something 😉
