Sophie Ellis Bextor's New Album Cover 'Wanderlust' Preview - Out Soon.

I can’t wait to share more from our lovely shoot.  Sophie is a delight to work with and I was thrilled she asked me to work with her again.  She is so stylish herself, that it was an honour to work with her on this new project.

She is wearing a fabulous lace dress from Mishka Vintage in this shot.  Nice to support Lizzie’s magical shop and great that it has made the cover.

More from the shoot to share soon…

As winter turns to spring with dramatic weather conditions ranging from epic blizzards to searing sunshine each day, here is this week’s inspiration: Ellen Terry as an Edwardian version of Lady Macbeth.  Drama, glamour, range…

Paloma Faith shot by Roger Deckker for US ELLE, wearing Antonio Berardi.

I had the pleasure and the honour to work with the delicious and delightful Paloma Faith recently for US ELLE.

I hope I get a chance to share the other shots soon, as I swooned at the glory of  the Emilia Wickstead ball gown and she looked hot in the maroon velvet bias cut Ralph Lauren evening gown number!

Jessie Ware in Worth Couture, for The Hunger, shot by Rankin.

Rankin’s studio is literally around the corner from mine: I love that the corner of North London is both curiously anonymous, yet quietly fabulous..  I love London; hope you like this shoot.

The Power of White

Gwyneth Paltrow: Oscars red carpet 2012, dress by Tom Ford.

White reflects all colours; it is purity, bridal, innocent and clean.  Like stark modern architecture, what I loved about this look was how it was a catwalk breath of fresh air on a normally overdone LA red carpet.  The cape adds confidence and drama with it’s strong silhouette, outlining a streamlined body con beauty of a dress.  This is how to stand apart on the walk of fame – in a good way – see that smirk, she knows she looks good!  As a stylist, I would be delighted to have a client allow me to let her be this brave and realise that by combining a strong shape with a simple line and colour you maximise your best dressed list results; Tom Ford for this I salute you.

by AMNESIA MAGAZINE14.08.2011She's electricThere’s nothing cooler than Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Her dark hair, the tattoo on her arm that reads ‘Family’ inside a red heart, the love with which she speaks of her kids and how they set up tiny clubs at home while singing and dancing together. Sophie is a pop star and our weak spot. Her latest album, ‘Make a Scene’, will make us dream at Amnesia on 21st August.

The cover artwork for ‘Make a Scene’ is beautiful. Sophie in black and white, her eyes wide open, calm, the mouth just opening. Almost like a Mark Ryden character. This inspiring picture makes us think of a teen Sophie, almost gothic. She’s glad that the pictures in her new album communicate so much: “I love that you love the pictures! The photographer is Ben Weller. I wanted something that looked classic and I love that eerie look that black and white photos have to offer. We worked together for a couple of days, to gather up the pace and relax, and the idea evolved into something slightly different. I love the pictures where my hair is kind of billowing. I would’ve loved the picture on the back to be the cover!”

The cover is not the only evocative thing. The title of one of her new songs, ‘Heartbreak (Make Me a Dancer)’, is also evocative. Just by reading it you can picture her dancing alone in her room or in some club, melancholy. Where can we find her dancing? “Probably at home with my kids. I love playing them the music I love and we’re always singing. They also have a record player with club lights in their bedroom, so we can always set up a home club. I also dance at clubs, but that’s normally when I’m working, playing a set or a live gig. If I have the night off, I’ll usually just meet up with friends in the neighbourhood or I’ll go out for dinner with my husband. I dance enough on stage!”

And speaking about stages. Imagining her on the Amnesia stage is a powerful image. So pale, so incredibly beautiful and slightly ethereal. It’s great to have a dark-haired pop star… Sophie, please don’t ever dye your hair blonde. “My hair’s been red, blonde, even pink… but I’ll always be dark-haired in my heart”.
