Recently I had the pleasure of shooting with Alison Jackson for the October Issue of Vanity Fair Magazine.
I thought I would tell you a little more about how it came about…
I heard there was a casting for a showgirl type character with Alison. I was always a fan of her work, seeing it in the media although I didn’t know what it was for at this point. I turned up at the casting in Chelsea feeling like maybe I shouldn’t be there- there were a lot of very tall thin girls who looked just wonderful to me! I felt the nagging voice in the back of my head (that we all get) but decided to stay seeing as I was there (and was excited to meet Alison;)
Meeting Alison was lovely as she explained about the project. It was for a showgirl character and I told her I had suitable attire underneath my dress! After a couple of photos, it was quickly over and I was delighted to hear I got it.
We shot at a beautiful White House type location with a Donald Trump look-a-like from LA who was his replica- it was quite funny talking to him! We shot a showgirl scene and I played a beautician- the se are the ones they used for Vanity Fair, the showgirl ones may arise at a later stage! It was a wonderful experience, totally different from my normal vintage style and the photos were shared on various news outlets, will definitely be looking out for more of Alison Jacksons fantastic work in the future.
