Backstage

1940’s stage manager vibes. 

All glamour. All business. All woman.

Outfit Details

Inspired by Katherine Hepburn this look is all about masculine tailoring, feminine textures and a take-no-prisoners attitude. For when you need to get shit done, and look good doing it.

Pair with a lipstick coloured by the blood of your enemies and take on the day.

Imagine a Parisian cabaret performer – the type you’d find backstage at a smoky vintage nightclub, reading poetry and drinking espresso. She’s my inspiration for this shoot with Zandy J.

I had such fun styling this look. Searching for a contrast between sweet hyper-femininity and shameless sex appeal I met my old nemesis…pink. I’ve never been a pink lovin’ gal ( swearing off it for over a decade) but there was something about the soft sensuality of these fur cuffs that wouldn’t be ignored.

They made me feel vampy and playful all at once. Like a 1940’s man-eater cooing in the ear of a well dressed mob boss.

Oh la la…

I have to say my hair and makeup skills have come a long way in the last few years, but my naturally curly hair does not like humidity! Any lovelies willing to share their tips for keeping humid locks sleek and styled?
