A couple of weeks ago, we headed to Manchester for an exciting promo shoot with our headline sponsor New Look. After staying in some pretty cool apartments the night before, we met up with plus model, digital influencer and absolute babe Felicity Hayward before we set off to explore the studios.
The day kicked off with hair and beauty. Doll Beauty was obviously on hand to supply the lashes. (Can’t wait to see them at this year’s festival!) We kept to Felicity’s statement look with a gorgeous red lip. If only you could be a fly on the wall in that dressing room. We laughed so hard we’re sure that the whole building heard us giggling away. With the day starting so well, we knew it was going to be a good one.
New Look was on hand with the gorgeous pieces Felicity modeled throughout the day. Simon, an awesome photographer, was part of the dream team to make sure everything went to plan. He’s friendly, hilarious and someone we want to be our bestie. We allocated him the Dad role of the day; ensuring everyone was on time and important details were kept too.
Felicity was such a natural in front of the camera. Outfit changes, make up touch ups and experimenting with stools, steps and string didn’t faze her for a second. We posted on social media throughout the day and this outfit was the one that really got people’s attention. It’s a sharp suit with a real feminine and fun vibe to it. Oversized, relaxed and so cool. This was a total winner on the day and even now we’re ready to pop it in our basket the minute it launches on New Look soon.
There were quite a few outfits to get through. From relaxed fit shirts to flirty floral dresses. The new stuff coming to New Look Curves soon is impressive and our preview definitely left us wanting more. We stopped for lunch half way through (who knew melted cheese could taste so good!) before getting straight back into styling and accessorising. We ended the day pretending to be the new plus size Barbie. Because why not? Might as well use the studio props while we’re there!
Keep your eyes peeled for the images coming soon. Don’t forget you’ll be able to meet the New Look team and Felicity herself at this year's Curve Fashion Festival. We have some incredible Meet & Greet’s to look forward to this year.
