U magazine Stylist Comp. - Round Two!


Well as y'all know by now (read this in case you don't') I had my entry for U magazines's stylist comp due in last Monday.  My brief was to style one look based around neon and give it a futuristic vibe.  I also had to shoot in it an urban area.  So I chose a rooftop car park.  Luckily we didn't get kicked out of the building.  

In my head I knew I already wanted pink and silver but I was keeping my mind open.  To make it futuristic I chose metallic pieces and unusual accessories.  I thought the silver bracelets had a space age vibe going on.  Another guideline I had to follow was to keep it appropriate for U magazine readers.  I kept it wearable enough.  I didn't want to use any couture or over priced garments. At the same time I wanted to keep it interesting so I let the jewellery stand out as all girls know statement jewels can transform a simple outfit.  

Well I was so so excited about this shoot, it's not my usual style.  It's quite a commercial look so it was a great challenge to tone down my styling a bit and focus on wear-ability.  I cannot stress how amazing the team were on the day, I couldn't find a fault if I tried.  I have used Li ann to model three times now (I'm a little obsessed) she just keeps getting better.  The photographer, hair stylist and make up artist all agreed to help me out too for the sake of their portfolios. They are all so talented.  Fingers are double crossed :)

Just to verify, these photos are not of me! I'm the stylist.

I wanted to do another look while I was at it so I borrowed this yellow dress from a brand new fashion grad,    
Aisling Connell.  She's amazing!
