One of the thrillis of LFW was crossing the road towards Somerset House and seeing this poster for the seventh issue of HUNGER magazine, advertising its eight covers (one of which I did the make-up for, on rising star Hollie-May Saker, above). Most exciting was the beauty story inside, inspired by CHANEL’s Fall Collection États Poétique. The idea of Gabrielle Chanel writing love letters at her desk was updated into the narrative of a young girl in her bedroom, dreaming of fronting her own band. We called the story ‘Pop Star Punk Poet’ and you can see the film of Hollie-May rocking out to Wolf Alice’s song, ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’, in the specially created Hunger bedroom (set designed by Lucy Cooper, at http://www.hungertv.com/feature/pop-star-punk-poet/ )

It’s such a pleasure to work with Rankin and his team – the studio is like a picture making factory! This shoot was particularly special because it was commissioned by my ex-assistant and incredible make-up artist Andrew Gallimore, who is now beauty editor at large of HUNGER magazine. Buy the issue to enjoy his amazing beauty stories too!
