Elle Magazine - "Shopgirl To Stylist"
Having previously mentioned Elle's shopgirl to stylist competition, I was very excited to see these photographs on style bubble. Susie went to one of the semi finals of the competition on monday (19th July) where 4 contestants presented their double sided moodboards for a high street A/W '10-11 shoot, including details of hair/makeup/mood/trends etc. to Natalie Wansbrough - Jones and Donna Wallace from the Elle team.
Lauren McBride proposed an all-black, shape and texture driven shoot, Ellie Wilcox proposed an outdoorsy "Woman on a Mission" shoot, centered around knits/layers/shearling/a deliberately chunky effect, Emma Molyneax proposed another outdoors inspired shoot, which was a much dreamier and more delicate affair and Lucy Kenny presented a shoot inspired by the anarchic layers of John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood, a particularly high end look for a high street shoot. These were only 4 of the 25 semi finalists, and the judges now have to choose the final 2, so it will be really interesting to see if any of these girls make the final.
