BACK IN 2013, SUPERMODEL/ACTRESS CARA DELEVINGNE AND HER BEST FRIEND GEORGIA MAY JAGGER WERE IN MY FORMER SALON, BOTH GETTING THEIR HAIR DONE, AND WHILST I’D GONE IN TO CUT CARA’S HAIR, I ALSO TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO A DOUBLE Q&A WITH THEM BOTH, WHICH I RECORDED THEN HAD TRANSCRIPTED.
IT WAS A FUN MOMENT IN TIME WITH SOME FUN ANSWERS TO BOOT.
I’m very excited to announce today that my Q&A is a special double “in conversation” with two of the biggest British models around right now, best mates Cara Jocelyn Delevingne and Georgia May Jagger.
‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ was written for friends like Cara and Georgia, and…….
….. whilst getting their hair done at the same time a few weeks ago, I interviewed them together with my Q&A. What transpired was a funny, charming conversation between us all, which not only gives you a mini insight into their world but also shows off their lovely, close, fun friendship!
So without further ado I give you Cara, Georgia and Myself having a chat….. (interspersed with some images etc of my work with them)
