“Fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously. You’ve got to have fun with it to make it work!
Think of all the endless possibilities of what you can create. Let your imagination run riot. Have fun, glam up - Love it! Rock it! Own it!"
**The Nightmare Before Christmas**
The run up to Christmas is probably one of the most stressful times of the year, particularly for us women. After all, most of us are expected to do the Christmas presents and food shopping, organising or coordinating all the parties and visiting, putting up the tree and decorations, wrapping the presents. I could go on and on and on - the list is endless.
By the time Christmas arrives, my brain is usually frazzled. I’m fed up and exhausted, with what little is left of my Christmas cheer, evaporating fast!
This year I wanted our fashion shoot to reflect that. Picture the scene…
It’s time for the big Christmas night out and you need to get ready but you still have a million and one things to do.
The tree still needs decorating; the presents still need wrapping. So much to do, so little time!
While juggling your bows and baubles, and manically multitasking trying to apply your makeup, you trip over the half-decorated Christmas tree, indelicately landing on top of it and the half-wrapped presents lying underneath.
Oh yes! Fan-frigging festive-tastic! You now have a scissors sticking out of your cheek, a smashed bauble in your eye, and you’ve electrocuted yourself in the tangle of fairy lights.
And if that isn’t enough to wrap your head around, you somehow end up gift wrapping yourself in the plethora of holographic wrapping paper! Ho ho ho...Merry Christmas and festive mayhem to you!
Hilary and Beth did an amazing job with the electrocuted hair and special effects makeup. They always rise to the occasion no matter what I throw at them - sometimes quite literally! I think they quite enjoy making me look gruesome and OTT ridiculous. The more elaborate the shoot ideas are the more outrageous they become
