the after - Elle magazine feature

Behind the scenes:
Some of the H&M accessories. (I brought three of my own H&M hats. They used the purple) Making last minute adjustments before the shoot
Lillianna being filmed for the H&M and Elle video (follow her twitter here) The shot they used I've been dying to let you guys know about the photo shoot I mentioned last week.
I am in the current September issue of Elle magazine!! The biggest and most important issue of the fashion calender.
I was chosen along with Liliana Vazquez to feature a key look from the H&M Fall/Winter collection for a feature spread. We each were photographed in three outfits and the shots above show the ones that were used.
Thank you to everyone at Elle magazine and H&M. It was an honour to meet you all in person.
ps. There is also a trend video coming soon which I'll let you know about when launched.
This is all still sinking in....

  38. Thank you everyone for these comments. IT really means alot.

    As I said it's still sinking in even after all these weeks (I've known about this for quite some time).

    Everything I'm wearing will be hitting the shops soon if it's not already. The hat I bought at H&M months ago though earlier this year but I won't be suprised if they come out with another. It's a classic hat really.


    British Babe - we are. My Mum is very happy and I've just posted her the mags that I've appeared in recently so she have a look : )

  58. Thank you guys for this. It is amazing really. Ask me a year ago if I thought I'd be in Elle and I'd have laughed my head off.

    If any of you do get the magazine, you have to check out the shots of Julia Roberts. Each is themed for her latest film Eat Pray Love. The pictures are uh mazing....!!

    Lionne - suprising to hear that in this day and age. Hopefully that'll change one day.
