Elle Paris Shoot {Behind The Scenes}

These photos feel like they were taken a lifetime ago, though it’s only been a few weeks!

A while before I left for Australia, I did a little shoot with one of my all time favourite magazines, Elle.

They whisked me away to Paris to shoot for an afternoon, and I couldn’t resist a little behind-the-scenes peek!

All based around street style, I was asked to bring along a few outfits. Starting with a monochrome look, that I felt was very Parisian!

I was slathered and preened by the expert team.

Very high energy, Ricardo is all “GO! GO! GO! Twirl baby, dance, jump, be crazzzzyy!” in the most magnificent of French accents.

It was seriously hot work.

We’d chosen the muggiest day in roasting Paris to shoot!

I piled my hair up to keep it out of the way between shoots… but the stylist loved it, and insisted I keep it up. (Thank goodness!)

We stopped for a quick lunch break at the Mini Palais.

Even a quick bite to eat is done properly in Paris!

We chattered through lunch, heard a little of what it’s like to work for one of the world’s biggest magazines (busy) and discussed the rising threat of social media; one which Elle at least seems to be taking in its stride. Harnessing bloggers for shoots and collaborations, Instagram accounts in every country, and a worldwide web presence.

Proof, if ever it were needed, that social media and online media doesn’t mean the end of print, it just means its time to evolve. It’s good to grow and change is healthy.

But there was no more time for chit-chat, it was time to shoot my final, possibly favourite, look.

A few groups of readers saw my Instagram, worked out where we were shooting and came over to say hello.

To say you’re a stylish, gorgeous bunch is the understatement of the century!

To finish the shoot, we did a “photobooth” set up.

Let me tell you, there’s not much more intimidating than trying to get cool photobooth shots in front of an entire team of people laughing and shouting! But we gave it a good go.
