Broderie Anglaise

Friday 25th Oct 2013

When styling a shoot, I draw my inspiration from many (often pretty random) places – watermelon eyebrows anyone? or how about a baby elephant?

But being a a massive cinephile (read: movie nerd), it’s often a film that has inspired me.

Today was the dreamy, slightly sinister ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’.

I remember watching this and not being too worried about Miranda:

6 year old me:
“I think she’s just fallen down between some rocks. I’m sure she’ll be ok”

…but being totally transfixed by all the wonderful, white cotton dresses the girls got to wear. I have been a sucker for lace, broderie anglaise and cotton voile ever since.

      Hi Alison,
      I’ve just herd back from Kimberley Forbes – makeup artist on this shoot:
      “I used a:
      – Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow on the eyes:
      – The Bobbi’s Basics Set looks also has great tones for lips and eyes:
      – I also used the Becca Lip and Cheek Creme in Blossom:
      – Armani:
      and Nars:
      both do a lovely creme blush and shadow as well”

      Hope this helps!
      Let me know how you go,
