7 Days

Just 1 week left to see the huuge painting of me; 'Holly' by Louis Smith, that was awarded second prize in the 2011 BP Portrait Exhibition, before it moves from London up to Wolverhampton (24 Sept - 1 Nov) & Aberdeen (12 Nov - 21 Jan 2012). I'll be there again on Thursday and probably Saturday too, showing some of my loved ones around the exhibition and having another look around the rest of the gallery.

Where: National Portrait Gallery, St Martin's Place, London!
Nearest Tubes: Leicester Square / Charing Cross
Open daily 10am-6pm (Thurs & Fri until 9pm) until Sun 18th Sept.

Adorned

I have written before about Sparklewren - she is a bespoke, luxury corsetmaker. I own 2 of her beautiful pieces already; my powder blue underbust cincher and my lilac satin, silver encrusted, ribbon-laced overbust corset. I'm planning to get another one in the near future, they are just gorgeous; making you look sensational and feel divine. Her work is getting more and more creative, as she studies traditional, classical techniques and mixes them with modern, innovative and deluxe styling. As well as being such a hardworking, passionate, kind-hearted person, Jenni is super talented and already getting great acclaim for her designs. Her work was recently documented alongside top fashion designers such as Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood in the blog - Burlesque Style: Top 20 Stunning Corset Designs I can see this lady going far and can't work to work more with her myself in the future.

The last shoot we had was a deliciously glamourous affair set in a beautifully elaborate London town house, with models such as mane-haired beauty Madame Bink, burlesque sweetheart Chrys Columbine, the gorgeous Samio Olowu and the awesome force of hotness that is Tessa (Holes in the Sea), running around half in and half out of luscious corseted creations, and adorned with sparkling diamontes, killer heels and smokey eyes (all photographed by the super cool Sean Elliot!).

Hope you enjoy these beauties, look out for more on Sparklewren's website, and I will post some other sets soon...
