I’m writing a feature for a future issue of Red magazine, and Style Editor Alexandra Stedman booked me in today for a shoot with photographer Liam Duke to illustrate it. Of course I can’t show you me in the final look, (I’ll run those behind the scenes pics when the issue comes out), but I did snap a few pics in between the make up chair and the camera.

There were rows of fabulous shoes, and I wavered around some Charlotte Olympias and Sophia Websters, before narrowing it down to a pink or red shoe:

I couldn’t actually stand for more than a few seconds in the Louboutins, and went for these in the end. I do love a Valentino Rockstud:

We were shooting in The Loft, at Perseverance Works in Shoreditch

BEST EVER make up and hair: Athena Souvakis and Heath Massi (both at Frank.)

And here’s the final look – from the neck up:

Then I took a car to Soho, for supper upstairs at Quo Vadis, with the wonderful Mrs Trefusis. She had crab mayonnaise, and I ordered young garlic, olives, peas, mint,  with Jersey Mids on the side.

Fab hair!

I always want to love Quo Vadis, but have had such disappointing meals there, I daren’t go back. 🙁

@Blonde: yeah, I’m kind of with you: love the concept, love the room, but the service is just off, can’t quite articulate why, but it just seems a bit rushed, a bit un-cossetting. And Fino the same. And quite a lot of the time I want to shriek CHANGE THE FRICKIN MENU! LLGxx

Amazing shoes! Did you get to keep them? 😉
Can’t wait to read the feature. Red is about the only magazine I bother to buy these days – I get most of my inspiration from all the great blogs out there (including yours of course!)

Reply

@Ase: hahaha no. It’s only in wildly unrealistic movies like the Devil Wears Prada that people get to keep samples/raid the fashion closet! Red is *such* a great magazine. I’m very proud that I get to write for them as a journalist LLGxx
