Today Ms Ooh La La, beautiful model Sian, and talented fashion photographer Nat Cook braved the rain (and shoppers!) to create a street style photo shoot on London's famous flower market, Columbia road. We thought it might be fun to share with you some behind the scenes shots to share highs... (vintage hair styling & cake eating!) and the lows... (posing in near torrential rain!):
10 am, Ms Ooh La La heads to The Powder Room where the fabulous Candy styles her hair into 1940's Victory Roles...requiring muchos backcombing & half a can of Elnett ('this brushes out right?')
11 am, model Sian arrives and starts prepping her make up but 'zut alors!' discovers she's sans eyelash glue! so we run out to the Powder Room who save the day-again!
11:30 am Photographer Nat Cook arrives and picks some great locations to shoot by The Birdcage -the old green tiles make the perfect backdrop, then we nip round the corner to make use of the exposed brickwork, and whilst 'vogueing' & posing to Nat's shouts of 'couture' (think Zoolander but more pouty!) we try not to get too distracted by working in close proximity to the heaven of baked goods known as, 'The Cake Hole cafe'
3pm we wrap up and Ms Ooh La La allows herself to polish off the last of the French Fancies...with a little help from her pals...
Stay tuned to see the final pictures next week x
