This is another styling project I have done. Model was Norea and Photographers: Joe & Celine from Mr & Miss Stencils. Talk about efficiency! I did this shoot only a few days ago.
Norea is a really, really tall model (aren’t they all, next to me) and this is what I put her in;
Purple is her favourite colour, so here I draped multiple necklaces around her neck, mostly beaded, al in different shades of purple and silver. This actually features what is a summer dressing gown, but you wouldn’t know! Styling is all about being creative and innovative with clothing & fabrics as well as accessories.
Animal print suits Noreas skin tone perfectly, as people with darker skin can wear animal print much easier than those with lighter skin – it tends to look too trashy. I also dressed her in a high waisted skirt to show off not only her fantastically long legs but her slim waist and great figure. Women of all sizes & shapes can wear pencil skirts, its always a flattering cut if you get the right length.
I also chose to dress her in a multi coloured, bright print, as it shows how much colour Norea can wear. She easily suits all colours with her skin tone matching all the different tones on the top. A thin belt placed above her hips, elongates her torso by creating 2 sections making her torso look extra long, lengthening and slimming her.
Norea can easily wear ankle boots as it doesn’t cut her legs short. Because her calves and ankles are so slim, it makes her look slimmer and cuts it off at the thinnest part, as she has size 10 shoes (8 is women’s average). A pump shoe would have widened her foot too much and would not have created such an appealing aesthetic. I have dressed her in short shorts, coming right up to the top of her thigh, to keep her legs looking long – a long skirt would make made her legs look short and stumpy teamed with ankle boots.
The vibrancy of the blue in this dress really brings out her facial features as Penny Ngu (makeup artist) has perfectly highlighted them with colour. Norea has the height to wear a maxi dress and dressing her in shoes that snake up her ankle only enhances this.
Big thankyou to Norea who was a dream to work with, really easy to instruct and Joe & Celine who took these awesome pics.
Thanks Penny as well for a great job on makeup as usual!
I think these are fantastic photos, and Norea looks great, what do you think?
