Beverly Hills Hotel…..

Tropical trees, pink hues and swimming pools are ticking every box this week. Not only are we pining over the super cool wallpaper, but as this week’s soaring temperatures continue we’ve found ourselves fantasising over splashes of turquoise water, plush deck chairs and cocktails. Oh, if only we could all be at the Beverly Hills Hotel right now, so this week we’ve brought a little bit of this iconic gem to our studio on The Kings Road. We have some exciting new props coming up to make for an amazing summer studio shoot. Take in some of our inspiration and feel free to join us in our day dream…..

Inspiration…

After reading an interesting article on photographer Deborah Turbeville in RUSSH magazine earlier this year, I decided this had to be a feature on the blog. Her tasteful eye and story telling through the lens is one to be admired. She carries the ability to capture women in a realm of otherworldly hazy beauty with the touch of a fine artist.

She made her name in the eighties photographing Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista for Vogue, and her iconic style is being replicated by contemporary photographers the world over.

Her photographs have a filmic nostalgic quality. And we’re all aboard the journey into the wonderful world of Turbeville.

The Face London’s photo of the week….

This week we had some fantastic clients and their pictures where even more so!
It was tough to pick our personal favourites and narrow them down to all but one image for the pic of the week, so after much pondering and reveiwing of all the staff’s fav’s we finally made our decision.

Drum roll please…….

This week’s photo of the week goes to the lovely Miss Alice, with the cutest shoes you have ever laid eye on!

What a prefectly charming and sweet image- a little Miss Dior Cherie-esque if you ask me. x

Sugar and spice and all things nice!

We hope you love your images as much as we do, Alice!

Photo of the week!

At the the face London we always encourage our clients to bring accessories along with them on their day, and more often than not it’s the attention to detail that make the most captivating of images. This week we carefully selected our photo of the week, this lovely young lady came fully prepared to take home some amazing shots.  We fell in love with the aesthetic and concept for her images – it just goes to show that a statement accessory is the perfect addition to any look!

Birds of a feather……

Hair accessories are making a major impact right now- on the hottest catwalks and the coolest trends.  At Chanel we saw pearls scattered randomly throughout the hair- giving off a fairy tale, pretty look. Pucci turned a can’t be-bothered pony into a style statement with scarves being tied half way down-oozing a carefree vibe.

Today, it’s not the  pearls or scarves we are lusting over, instead it’s feathers we just can’t get enough of them!

Take a gander at these lovelies…
