BE BEAUTIFUL BE BOLD BE BEAUTIFUL BE BOLD BE BEAUTIFUL BE BOLD
That is exactly what this shoot was all about. It all started with a conversation with Severin Hubert while we were working on another project and this is where BE BEAUTIFUL was born. After numerous late night phone conversations and e-mails we finally got the team together and what a team it was. The photographs were taken by the very talented Nobu Yamaguchi and styled by Tiffany Grant-Riley . The video was done by Dream Catchers and what a job they did as I am not very good in front of a camera and I was made to feel very comfortable. The location was the The Manor House at Headly and the flowers were done by the brilliant By Appointment Only and the tasty Cakes were supplied by The cake Parlour. Last but not least Jo Kent and her expertise in PR.
This shoot was split in to 3 styles BE CHIC, BE BOLD, BE CLASSIC. I took on the the BE BOLD look with make up artist Mariam Jensen and our beautiful model Chara Jackson. Mariam and I were inspired by Brigitte Bardot and Studio 54. Strong hair and make up.
For our first look I did a very big beehive style and this was all of Chara's own hair. I wanted this style to have a modern feel to it so I kept it very textured and deconstructed.
With the second look of the Studio 54 feel I curled Chara's hair with a small iron to give her style a lot of bounce to compliment the jump suit that she was wearing. I was lucky to fit a third look in the days shoot so I took all of Chara's curly hair and pined it all on top of her head to sit well with the beaded head piece that she was wearing. One of my favorite pictures is of Chara is of her in mid air.
