Rumour has it a Model a friend of mine Georgia has recently just got back from a QE2 Cruise to New York for Transatlantic Fashion Week to walk for the king of Seventies Glamour himself Julien Macdonald before he debut’s his Spring Summer 2018 collection at London Fashion Week. So, who do you think I called then to come with me to the show? Of course it had to be Georgia as she’s lot’s of fun and I wanted to hear all about the model gossip during her trip to New York. Oh, wait!!! something about Mr Tinder and a cute guy model she nickname’s ‘The Lord’ both walked in the show for Transatlantic Fashion Week.
Meanwhile, back in London town it was all about the big names in the modelling industry that Julien always get’s to walk the catwalk in his stunning designs for the world’s gliteratti to see. As per usual me and Georgia could’nt help spy the FROW of VIP and Influencers in attendance from Lady Victoria Hervey, to Ronan Keating, Caprice and X-Factor’s Alexandra Burke who came to support Julien Macdonald this season. Most of all Julien certainly know’s how to throw an amazing party and look after his guest with pre-show drinks on arrival sponsored by Ciroc Vodka and the pop-up 70’s discotech evoked the bygone era of the Studio 54 Days never forgotten.
The show began with a dramatic entrance in the form of a choriagraphed light show accompanied by the eeerie soundtrack from Ridley Scott’s Alien Film Saga as the models descended from another futuristic planet far and beyond the universe with Winnie Harlow, Hayley Baldwin, Alessandra Ambrosio and Martha Hunt walking this season. It was a great feeling of joy and excitement as the new Millenial Supermodel’s strutted their stuff on the runway in the name of high fashion.
Julien’s show was the perfect photo op to steal some of the limelight yourself on the Red Carpet as Georgia managed to attract the attention of the British press with her striking looks with poise. Learning to work the camera is one thing, but how to pull off that effortless red carpet look is about choosing the right clothes, so choose wisely. Try matching a fitted white dress shirt with a leather jacket over the top and slim fitting tapered jeans in a unique colour which contrast with the rest of your outfit. The benefit of this, is that it enables you to slowly draw the eye in from bottom to the top which elongate proportions with everything being narrow and well fitted garments works best.
