Iconic Looks

“Would you be our Marilyn Monroe?” It sounds like a silly question; of course I’d love to be your Marilyn Monroe. I was asked this question back in May and earlier this month the shoot was active. The shoot involved iconic looks though the eras; Charleston, Marilyn Monroe, Pin Up, Rock and Twiggy.

The concept was created by Candice Fuller for her Make-up course portfolio, and she worked in collaboration with super photographer, Claire Steels and hair stylist Melissa Worrall.

It was an early start but nothing a croissant and coffee couldn’t cure. I was very excited about having my hair done as it was going to be set in rollers and I’d have to sit under a ‘granny hairdryer’. They get very hot, so they’re not all what they’re cracked up to be!

All models had a variety of clothes and the transformations were spectacular, even if I do say so myself! Each model had about 1 hour of make-up and hair styling and roughly 45 minutes in front of the camera, which passes in a flash.

As always the team working on this shoot were fab, friendly and uber professional. Enough of me waffling, here are the finished articles. Some of these looks might inspire your Big Day hair or make-up. Enjoy!
