Behind the scenes: Christmas photo shoot
Fri 02 Oct 2009
Last week we were mourning the loss of summer, but excitement about the upcoming festive party season has now well and truly jettisoned those thoughts from our heads.
The stills from the Lipsy Christmas photo shoot have just pinged into our inboxes and we're so excited about the new collection we thought we'd share a few style-shoot tips with you.
Location - We split our shoot between exclusive members bar Fifty Club in Mayfair, which has its own bar, club and casino, and celebrity haunt the Jewel Bar in heart of the West End. There was a great buzz at Jewel while we were there as they were prepping to host some top London Fashion Week parties. Only the best for our Lipsy Girls!
Style - A/W09 is all about drama and statement pieces and we have plenty of party dresses to help you steal the show this festive season. Think studs, jewels, sparkle, sequins, leather and animal print - forget less is more, this season more is more! And don't forget the A/W09 must-have piece - the trophy jacket.
Hair - The 'more is more' mantra also goes for hair and make-up this season. Our hair stylist went for the 'big is beautiful' approach, saying that volume is the key look for Christmas. He created dishevelled fallen-out waves with a bit of back combing to add a sexy edge to the style. Think rock chick morning- after hair.
Make-up - For added drama, our make-up artists create sexy smoky eyes, adding false lashes for maximum effect. For extra Christmas party sparkle they applied gems around the eyes which complimented our embellished dresses perfectly.
The models loved...our new shoe collection and relaxing in Lipsy logowear at the end of the day. Oh, and the gorgeous male models of course!
