NOVEMBER 2016

5 YEARS AGO I WORKED ON A SHOOT FOR BRITISH VOGUE WITH TOP MODEL OF THE MOMENT ARIZONA MUSE, PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOSH OLINS ( HE OF KATE MIDDLETON, VOGUE COVER FAME, EARLIER THIS YEAR!).

Well occasionally, magazines will re-visit a shoot and use the pictures again and British Vogue have done exactly that this month. 

When we shot Arizona back in 2010, we also did some beauty pictures of her for a separate article and it’s one of those pics they’ve used again.

I love this shot so much that I wanted to re-visit it too on here.

Here is the original shoot plus the re-visited beauty shot that’s out this month. – Funnily enough the picture, they’ve used is for a hair feature by Beauty Director Nicola Moulton, where this picture was originally used as a make up shot back in April 2011.

img_6380HI ALL,

THE GQ GROOMING AWARD WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!

Earlier this year I announced that I was going to be one of the judges for the GQ Grooming awards 2017 alongside some other influential and handsome fellows.

Well, on Tues 4th Oct the winners were announced at the awards ceremony breakfast which took place at Avenue Restaurant and bar in central London. Hosted by the hilariously funny model/presenter Jack Guinness it was a rather fun morning. I caught up with some old friends and had a spot of brekky.

Below are some BTS images at the awards and a link to take you straight to the GQ webpage where all the winners are listed……….

MOODS COMEDY MONDAY… 

AS YOU MAY OR MAY NOT KNOW JULIE WALTERS’ IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BRITISH ACTRESSES OF ALL TIME. 

I’VE POSTED MANY SCENES AND SKETCHES STARRING JULIE IN VARIOUS GUISES IN FILM AND TV, BUT TODAY IS A SPECIAL TREAT, AS YOU’LL GET TO SEE JULIE AS HERSELF ON THE GRAHAM NORTON SHOW TALKING ABOUT MEETING CYNTHIA PAYNE, THE FAMOUS BRITISH MADAM WHO JULIE ENDED UP PLAYING IN THE 80’S FILM PERSONAL SERVICES.

Julie appearing as Cynthia…….

Julie is on Graham’s show as a guest alongside actor Jamie Dornan ( he of 50 Shades of Grey and Anthropoid fame) and after talking to Jamie about 50 Shades of Grey, Graham turns to Julie and says she knows a thing or 2 about kinky sex following her turn in the film Personal Services…….. below is Julie’s hilarious response.

 

WHAT’S COMING IN OCTOBER………..

OCTOBER IS SHAPING UP TO BE A BUSY MONTH FOR ME ALREADY AND FOR THE BLOG TOO….

SO I THOUGHT I’D GIVE YOU ALL A FEW LITTLE TEASERS ABOUT WHAT TO EXPECT THIS MONTH……

WHO REMEMBERS BRITISH MODEL ROSIE TAPNER? Here she is below from when I worked with her before.

british-vogue-boo-george-model-rosie-tapner-make-up-lotten-holmqvist-january-2014-01 collage-2 collage

that shoot was from British Vogue 2014 shot by Boo George, styled by Bay Garnett with Hair by me and Make up from Lotten Holmquist…… Rosie at the time had been noted as one of the new breed of British model sensations alongside Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn and had bagged Balenziaga and Chloe campaigns within months of starting her modelling journey. Not content with that though,  Rosie took a 2 year sabbatical to go to university and live the student life totally away from the fashion industry after a whirlwind 2 years of relentless posing for cameras, racking up a gazillion airmails and knowing most hotels around the world like the back of her hand.  Now she’s back and her new agent called me and asked if I could give Rosie a whole new look on the hair front to re-launch her career back into modelling and I have to say she looks stunning, and also very different!! She’s also appearing in the new Windle and Moodie AW16 trends campaign so I’ll be revealing those images too.

To go with this I also have new Q&A from Rosie about her life and what she;’s been up to.

Also coming up will be a huge trip to LA I’m taking later in the month for the Windle And Moodie press launch at the amazing beauty boutique store Violet Grey. Whilst I’m there I’ll also be making some online tutorial videos for them so I’ll be able to reveal all of the happenings of that trip fairly soon.

There will also be my usual Comedy Mondays with some brand new classic moments of comedy we’ve found on Youtube to keep you giggling through each Monday, and now Winter blues, plus some more brand new Editorial and Advertising Archive shoots that we’ve managed to dig out of the vaults, and some new work that I have out,  published this month for AW16. Finally there’ll be a Halloween special right at the end of the month too so be sure to pop back and visit throughout the month.

See you all soon
