Edith Bowman is a superstar radio DJ, she's honest, funny and super cool. We were beyond excited to shoot her for our latest Style Insider and we knew we would need a edgy backdrop for her rock chick look.
We headed to House of Wolf in Islington as our location, complete with a decadent Attic Dining room with smokey mirrors, a Victorian inspired Parlour with rich colours and an opulent gold wall and finally an Apothecary for cocktail making with a secret boutique boudoir Fainting Room hidden by an antique style bookcase.
Edith's hair styled by Ronnie Woodward from realhair which was blown out with a large round brush using 'Real Hair Root Lift and Volume Plumper and then set in large rollers, then brushed out, backcombed and finished of with some 'Schwarzkopf Dust Dry Shampoo to add a rough texture throughout the root.
Edith's makeup was courtesy of Hannah Edwards from Bobbi Brown who created their signature Smokey Eye for the shoot. Hannah added Eye Shadow in Grey to her brows, Eye Shadow in White as a base, then layered Slate Long-Wear Cream Shadow, finishing off with Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink and Smokey Eye Mascara. Hannah applied Bobbi Brown's Bronzer Golden Light and Blush in Pretty Pink to add a little colour plus a Lip Colour in Pale Pink.
Amazing shoes are essential to complete the modern wardrobe and we looked to the AW14 collection from Bionda Castana for the best Italian shoes for Edith's look. The feature was shot by Head of Creative Kate Gorbunova and watch this space for the full feature!
