T’HAIR STORY- TODAY IS NONE OTHER THAN CYNDI LAUPER

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

Cindy Lauper coined the phrase “Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun” with her first hit single back in 1983. And she did exactly that. One thing she definitely had fun with was her hair too, and so we’re paying homage to this American performer and her numerous outlandish and colourful hairstyles  who also helped shape the 80’s music scene for women.

Her debut solo album She’s So Unusual (1983) was the first debut female album to chart four top-five hits on the US Billboard Hot 100 with  Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun, Time After Time, She Bop and All through The Night which earned her the Best New Artist Award at the 27th Grammy Awards in 1985.

And just for a bit of extra fun, here’s her Girls Just Wanna Have fun Video too.

MOODS COMEDY MONDAY – BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE- SEASON 1 SCENE 1 – THE LIFE OF SIMON DOONAN

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

TODAY, MOODS COMEDY MONDAY BRINGS YOU BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE FROM 2008 .

When this comedy started on BBC2 I was hooked.

Simon Doonan is is the Creative Ambassador-at-Large of the New York City-based clothing store Barneys. He’s written many books but his 3rd book Beautiful People (also published as Nasty: My Family And Other Glamorous Varmints) became the book that was to be turned into a BBC TV comedy. Its based on his life growing up in a suburb of England as a young gay teenager, and was adapted by the writer Jonathan Harvey.

Here’s the first 10 mins of the very first episode that introduces you to the characters with a rather large bang, to cheer up your Monday.

EDITORIAL ARCHIVE – BRITISH VOGUE WITH GEMMA WARD BY CORINNE DAY JULY 2006 ISSUE

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

Last week saw the welcome return of the lovely Australian model Gemma Ward to the Prada S/S 15 Collections show.

Gemma was one of my favourite more recent supermodels ( and yes, she comes into that category as far as I’m concerned) and so for the editorial archive this month I’m posting a shoot that I worked on with Gemma in Australia.

The whole team flew to Sydney in the January of  2006. Gemma was already there visiting her family.

I love these pics, they not only remind me of a memorable trip with some great people but also what great pics they are of one of the best models of our time.

Vive La Gemma!!

So my little canine friend, Buster decided to take himself on holiday last week whilst I was beavering away at the shows in MIlan.

Here’s his favourite holiday snap, where he modelled himself on Daryl Hannah in the film, Splash, and The Perfect Mermaid, Hannah Mermaid shown underneath, in the hope that he could get to hang out with the coolest mermaids around ( his cunning plan to pull the girls!!)

He’s my  Little Mermaid !! Mermaid Buster

Wow, Italian Vogue is 50 this year. They’ve created a 50th anniversary special gatefold cover issue this month to celebrate, featuring 50 of the most iconic models.  ( see above)

This fashion bible has been a lot of peoples go to magazine over the years for the coolest looks around, and has featured some of the most iconic fashion images around.

Uber fashion photographer Steven Meisel shoots all the covers and main stories inside, but it has and still does feature many other photography giants.

I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with some of those greats for the magazine and still am. The first ever shoot I was booked on for a ‘Vogue’ shoot was for Italian Vogue. The shoot was with Mauela Pavesi, and the fashion editor was Alice Gentilucci, with one of the models being none other than the now British supermodel Stella Tennant, who was just starting out in her modelling career too.

So to celebrate the 50 years, here’s some images of some of my favourite shoots I’ve worked on for this Fashion Institution, including my first ever shoot for them. I hope you enjoy the images I’ve chosen.
