Saffi in the Boux Avenue Blog: Back stage with Miss B

Boux Avenue Blog:- Back stage with Miss B The photo shoot diaries: autumn winter ’13

A few weeks ago, Miss B and the Boux Avenue team headed across town for our fabulous new autumn winter photo shoot. Nestled away in a secret spot of London’s east end, we arrived at a beautiful old town house – our location for the day.
As we stepped inside, the decadent interiors and high ceilings were breathtaking, complete with sparkling chandelier lights and an eclectic collection of antique furniture and paintings. A delicious breakfast spread awaited us; after indulging in a feast of coffee, croissants and fresh fruit, it was time to get started, and – ever the lover of a little backstage gossip – Miss B was on hand to capture a few snaps for my lovely blog readers…

Our fabulous hair stylist, Marica at work
Working with Curve Project London ambassador, Saffi Karina as our campaign model, the style of our shoot was smoulderingly sultry with a hint of vintage vamp. Behind the scenes our hair stylist, Marcia, smoothed out Saffi’s tight curls into sleek retro waves while make up artist, Claudine, created a smokey-eyed look with a deep raspberry-red lip – reminiscent of classic Hollywood glamour – Miss B’s favourite!

Claudine added the finishing touches to Saffi’s look…
The set was pure boudoir heaven, in rich, sumptuous fabrics and ultra-feminine shades. I loved all the delicate dressing table props too…

Luxurious lounging

Mirror, mirror... who's the fairest of them all?
Our model Saffi was simply a dream to work with; looking effortlessly radiant as she posed and pouted, shot after shot. Her beautiful curves were poured into luxurious lingerie sets and seductive chemises, while silk stockings, glittering jewels and satin marabou slippers provided the added vamp-factor to an already sizzling photo shoot. Miss B was mesmerised by all the glamour, but I did steal a moment to glimpse a peek at fabulous the photos on screen.
With Claudine and Marcia on hand for touch ups the day went without a hitch and we all had far too much fun – I’m sure they say it’s supposed to be hard work!

To give you an inkling of what’s to come, body confidence is the inspiration behind our autumn winter campaign; we aim to capture essence of femininity and inspire a little self-loving as we celebrate beautiful bodies in all shapes and sizes…

Our beautiful model, Safii
Stay tuned, as I reveal our first official campaign shots over the next few days…
Lots of love,
Miss B x
