Yesterday was the finale of the I Love Fashion News contest I was in. Last week we had to pull three outfits from the River Island shelves, a daily look, a Michael Jackson look and a going out look. Yesterday we finally got the chance to show them off. The day started early with catwalk coaching from Josh Veldhuizen herself and after that we went straight through hair and make-up. I wanted this Balenciaga bright orange make-up look, but since they didn’t have anything near bright orange, they gave me a strong smokey-eyed look which I really loved!
Right before I went on stage, I got so freakin’ nervous that my legs were shaking like a polaroid picture. For the first round I chose a striped longsleeve, brown hareem trousers, a beige puffed-shoulder trench, some coral red high heels to make the look a bit more colorful and some oversized jewellery to finish it off. Excuse me for the deadserious face in the picture.
For the Michael Jackson look we got a t-shirt on which we could DIY like crazy, I just cut a low V and rolled up the sleeves, because there was already much going on on the vest I was wearing. I combined this with black androgynous trousers, cream brogues and a white hat to add a little Michael Jackson feeling.
For the third look I picked a colorful snakeprint bodycon skirt (which was actually 3 sized too big for me), with a white tanktop tucked in and a strong shouldered blazer thrown over. I chose these amazing bright blue heels and accessoirized with a coral clutch, a big cocktail ring and an amazing necklace.
More pictures coming soon (from make-up to afterparty). Though the outfits didn’t get me to the final three, it was a great day, great experience and I definately had a blast! Congrats to Andy from Stylescrapbook who won the competition!
