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.

You look amazing! Congrats!!!


Sasha you are wasted behind a camera! If you ever tire of blogging you certainly have a good chance at modelling- my best (male) mate just looked over my shoulder at your pics and asked who the *model* was! 😉


As I tweeted to you yesterday, wow wow wow. I love the looks, the photos… & I am *so* happy for you! I started reading when you were in NJ. Your laptop was going bonkers, you weren’t sure what was what…well, I needn’t tell you what was going on. An excited, sympathetic *bounce* for you here in DC. xoxo


Stunning. Absolutely stunning. Your styling is impeccable. So chic yet totally wearable.


Oh my gosh, you look fantastic as always but how wonderful to be modeling!

Diesel has great clothes, and how great is it that they might now be more accessible to different body types.


You look fabulous!! Congrats! Love the makeup and hair 🙂


Congratulations! You look incredible. Just a note about the website you linked to – I’m not sure if it’s a glitch with my computer, but it seems that they have mislabeled your name as Emily O’Brien.


The picture of you sitting drinking coffee/tea? You should have as your new heading for the blog its a great picture, it encompasses what you do on your blog/food reference/fashion/traveling etc.
Well done for your first real modeling gig!
