more magazine shoot









playsuit: zara
shirt: asos
collar detail: asos
shoes: simmi

Sooooo. Im in this week's More Magazine (it has Mila Kunis on the cover!). And I think we can say straight off the bat, it doesn't look like me and would 100% be a photo I would delete if it came up on my outfit photos! ANYWAY, me and my looks paranoia over the way I look aside. Here are the photos from behind the scenes which I shot on the day! I'd literally got back from Turkey the morning before so had no time to think about what I was doing, I just jumped in a cab and headed to East London! It was actually so much fun and I really enjoyed being in a photoshoot situation. As a blogger it's completely out of my comfort zone having someone take photos for you, do your hair and makeup and tell you what to wear (although I did style the look myself!) Going back to my original point I can censor what I do and don't show on my blog! I could do with someone do my hair and makeup  on a daily basis though! Much easier and less effort for me!

The feature is basically about one item and getting five people to style it five ways. I was given the task of styling a Zara printed playsuit. So I went with a shirt and collar chain to make it a bit more "me"! I even worn the highest shoes I've ever worn, seriously the platform was about 4 inches! I literally had to shuffle from the clothing rails to the shoot set up! Overall I'm super happy about the way the look came out and the photos from the shoot! I just think I worry too much about the way I look!

NB: If you buy the magazine I just want to point out what they wrote isn't what I actually said. Magazines tend to take notes on what you say and then re-write it to fit with the story! Something I learnt a long time ago! Gosh I need to stop complaining and worrying! Im in a freaking magazine for gods sake!

  2. When I seen this earlier I did question wether or not they photo shopped you and edited what you said. I don't see the reason WHY they felt it necessary TO photoshop you... you look incredible!

  27. Congrats Lily! At first i didn't recognise you but ombre hair helped, i think this is a major problem of all media industry to idealise the natural beauty of person and make it match some "standart". Oh, you do know it better so no worries! Really like the way you styled this jumpsuit not hiding it's beauty, definitely better than other girls ;)

  39. I hope the instagram followers see this too because it seemed as if a lot of the comments were talking about what you have addressed here.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nonetheless this looks amazing! Looks like lots of fun, and you looked like you enjoyed it anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  41. You still look so pretty! And honestly, that would be a cool thing to cross off on a bucket list; to be in a magazine! What did you say compared to what they wrote? I don't believe we get More Mag here in the US, so I'll have to find a closer look!

  42. Hi Lily,

    You look absolutely fantastic!

    Love Joyve

  43. You look amazing, as per usual!

  44. It's a bit dodgy that they just rewrite what you say, isn't it? If I ever interview anyone I make sure I record it all and transcribe it pretty much as they said it - obviously deleting all the ums and ahs and boring bits! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. This is amazing, looks an absolute ball! I love the outfit. Now got some inspiration on how to spend my birthday money! Swiftly adding this to my shopping list!

  46. You do look very different but it must just be the way they've done your make-up, I can imagine it would be quite disconcerting to hand that responsibility over to someone else but you still look gorgeous! I love the way you styled the playsuit too, definitely my favourite out of the three!

  47. This looks amazing, cant wait to read it!
