Me? A model!?
The wonderful Blanaid Hennessy of Blanaid was inspired by an image of Crystal Renn and has hell bent on creating a sexy, vintage style, curvy photo shoot... And I was the lucky girl who was asked to do it. You could say I was excited but that would be an understatement! So in her new (and so cool) photography studio, Shutterbug, I was pampered and plucked and backcombed and put in the most amazing skirt by Blanaid (cannot stress how nice she was and how welcomed she made me feel).
So after she dolled me up like Brigitte Bardot and made me all sexy (at this point I was telling her I can't do sexy) her brother Eoin started shooting me, I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be. It was so fun trying to act sexy with Blanaid moving me to get the perfect shot and giving me directions and letting me know about every trick in the book about modeling. Parts were so hard: I don't think I was meant to bend like that! But they were very nice to me and understood that it hurt...
The two looks I was put in was a sexy 1960's style hollywood starlet and then a sexy russian spy! I was told think Brigitte Bardot for my first look and Angelina Jolie for the second. Now, in my head I can only do one sexy look so I have no idea how I looked and if I did a good job at all (though Blanaid told me I was great- to which I told her she was a great liar).
Dying to see the images! And would totally do it again, even though I am no model!
