Not only did I have the pleasure of modelling during the day, I was asked by the lovely team at Scarlett & Jo to model in their evening catwalk.
Whereas the day time catwalk was about our own hair and makeup (although if we wanted to, there was a team of MUA to help us out), the evening show had the theme of Hollywood glamour, and a team of 3 MUA to work their magic.
MrsBeBe looking effortlessly glamorous, oozing sex appeal.
There was a lot of waiting around, either for there to be a slot free with the MUAs, or waiting for our hair to set, or just waiting. This was a bless though, as it meant I got to spend quality time with the beauties that were my fellow models:
Now, any normal social situation, that involved me sitting there with no make up on, and surrounded by ladies I've admired for a great while, would have had me retreat into a bubble - but this bunch of beauties? Well:
When my dress for the evening wasn't enough to contain my boobs, I tried a little improvisation to sort out the problem:
Using an ear stud - but this wasn't enough for the chief designer, so a quick tacking and it was all fixed!
Now, Hollywood glamour, to me, means soft waves, or pin up style rolls, not really much they can do with my short hair:
Ooooh, I was wrong! I felt very Chicago-esque with my sleeked down hair and red lips. I was set!!
I loved meeting the gorgeous Kim, and spending some time with Emma, as well as a chance to chat properly with Betty, from Pamper and Curves. I first met her at the main event, but as I was begging her for a favour, I wanted to make a better 2nd impression!
Rachel and I opened the show, as we were both in versions of the same dress:
My fellow models made this a joyous experience, where we supported and encouraged each other throughout the whole event:
I would like to thank the team at Scarlett & Jo for this complete one-off opportunity. I can't ever imagine having this empowering, sexy and confidence-boosting experience again.
Unless of course, I wear one of these powerfit dresses in the office, and treat every trip to the canteen as my own personal catwalk that is!
Much love my lovelies,
