MCM – Give Me Some Drama

28th October 2010



Well well well, you’ve seen some behind the scenes photos from my last post, what do you think?  These are my first proper professional (unedited) photos shot by a professional photographer Rui Faria (VOLT mag), I must say I’m chuffed to bits. The first outfit I created a preppy inspired look from the late 90s/early 2000, a mix of Uniqlo, Gap and Benetton ad campaigns feel to go with the vibrant red Tambourine bag. The second outfit – A young-sassy lady with an attitude teamed with a cutey MCM leather dog and the gorgeous ash lilac ostrich bag…this is one of my favourite shots.

Was I nervous posing in front of the camera? Erm…at first I expected myself to be boring or trembling with fear so but no, Rui Faria (VOLT mag) the photographer made me feel at ease and very easy to work to with.  With my background experience as an Extra (another word…a background actor) in films, music videos and tv ads I thought this would help my confidence by playing a character that matches my personality and the bags itself….it did.  There were lots of jumping, eyes closing, cute and girly expressions, playing with my curls….and I loved the WIND MACHINE which gave my hair some dramatic effect.


Check out the other bloggers finalised photos HERE they looked AMAZING.

And lastly, I’m blooming thrilled, flattered and honoured to have two shots placed on Rui’s website alongside with Kristin Knox of The Clothes Whisperer‘s shots.  Thank you Rui!!!! Let’s hope they make it to Volt magazine ;P

This is the edited version.


1st outfit: Hat – BEYOND RETRO, Shirt – MEXX, One of the best cardigans I ever worn – BRORA courtesy of DEVETTA PR, Jeans – Courtesy of LEVI’S, Boots – Courtesy of BERTIE, Red tambourine bag – MCM.  2nd outfit: Dress – OASIS, Boots as before, Bag and Leather dog – MCM.

    Love the shot of the red tambourine bag, I love how you’re inspired by the Benetton/Uniqlo/Gap ad campaigns and it really worked on your style and personality. The dog shot is funny and love that bag too.

    eerm Have you considered signing up with a models agency?

    • Reply Kit @ Style Slicker 29th October 2010 at 22:38

      Thank you guys.
      @Castle in the candy floss sky – To be honest with you…I was scouted by Storm yonks and yonks ago when I was buying a carton of milk on Portobello Rd…she only interested in my FACE not my body, she told me I was suited for beauty not fashion hahaha.
      @The Nyanzi Report – David, unfortunately I couldn’t keep the dog….:S
      @Goo – I know! I’ve never seen my hair THAT black before, I was thinking of dying my hair in blue-black…looking at the picture now….neh.

    Those (photoshopped) photos will (no doubt) be popular in Asia if it were used as ad campaign particularly cities like Seoul, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai.
    I agree with Yen and RainbowKid, it’s about time to use ‘real’ people to feature in advertising campaigns like this, in a way to connect with consumers. As long as you fit in their categories………YOUR IN.
    As an obsessive bag lover I would definitely buy the products just because the photos has sold me. Well done to the team behind MCM.

    P.s I own a MCM wallet 😀
