One of many freelance contracts over London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 included my role as a Backstage correspondent for Vauxhall Fashion Scout. This means I was very fortunate to have an all-access pass to the beauty and beauties before every show and get a little snap happy in between words.
Because a lot of photos were taken I have split all backstage photos for Fashion Scout into two parts. This is Part Two (Part One is here), featuring Leutton Postle, Myrza de Muynuck, and Sabina Bryntesson with all hair done by the Toni and Guyteam and make-up done by The Body Shop ladies. Enjoy!

A/W 2012 was one of my favourite ‘model seasons’ to date. Mixed in with the supers were a plethora of up-and-coming beauties: from Zuzanna Bijoch (above) to the i-D cover model Lina Zhang, there was a lot of fabulous werk happening in New York, London, Paris and Milan. One model even walked 73 shows! (See below)

Though the full campaign has yet to be released, I have astronomically high hopes for Louis Vuitton‘s Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign. With models Daria Strokous and Kati Nescher snapped in a candy-coated colour dream scheme, the collection (thus far) has really been brought to life. It begs for a second glance, which is something I feel such a monumental fashion campaign should hold to the highest priority. Only Steven Meisel could have photographed this to this degree of perfection. View Post
Flare magazine has stood up and got me to notice them. In reference to their spread, “Your Majesty“, for their November 2011 issue…all I can say is “wow”. I would not change a thing about these Chris Nicholls photographs. Fashion stylist Fiona Green has used models Emily Fox, Finlay Moore and ‘Dani’ brilliantly, displaying an aristocracy, romanticism, and affluence that reads frictionlessly. Using a bold Comme des Garcons print on a little girl? Genius. With a healthy dose of Givenchy and some exaggerated proportions, Flare can enjoy this month’s very fashionable reign. View Post
I love the way Vincent Peters‘ photography incorporates multiple uses of layering and lighting adjustments, yet can be viewed seamlessly. In the photographer’s spread for the November 2011 issue of Vogue Russia, “Glacial Glamour“, Ginta Lapiņa and her equally-extraordinary background models are set to seductive perfection. Ekaterina Mukhina did a beautiful job with the styling, as well. View Post
