60’s photo shoot at The London Palladium

It was a privilege to use the bar area at The London Palladium this week for our 60’s photo shoot.

The outfits looked stunning against the dramatic backdrop of the spiral staircase and posters of shows dating back to the 1960’s and before.

Our models Joanne Bridge, Emma Housley and Anthony Whiteman not only wore authentic 60’s clothing and accessories from our store, but had their hair and make up professionally styled and applied by Katie Oropallo, who performed a fantastic transformation, transporting them back to the 60’s with beehive hairdo’s, heavy black eye makeup, false eyelashes and pale lipstick.

Joanne’s first outfit comprised of a pale blue crepe, shift dress with green velvet and pearl trim worn with wrist length white gloves with open pattern. With the heavy eyeliner, beehive hairstyle and headscarf, Joanne looked a typical example of 60’s chic.

The pink open appliqué David Gibbon dress has a two tone satin lining and looked absolutely gorgeous teamed with a pair of cerise tights and nude shoes.

Emma looked radiant in two lovely cotton shift day dresses worn with pale tights and later in a gorgeous vintage black velvet cocktail dress with faux leopard skin swing back fur coat by Royal Castor. Her beehive bob and drawn on underlashes looked superb with pale lipstick and gave her an authentic 60’s chick look.

Anthony looked incredibly dashing in fawn slacks, brown patterned shirt and sleeveless wool pullover worn with a straw trilby style hat. Later for the evening he donned black trousers with burgundy velvet jacket and cravat.

A big thank you to Joanne Bridge, Emma Housley, and Anthony Whiteman for being such fabulous models, Katie Oropallo for the stunning hair and make up, Lewis Bridge for taking the portfolio of pictures and Victoria Hinde for directing the shots.
