Shot in my very own living room, Antonia wears vintage dresses from the fifties and sixties from Resurrection Boutique, accessorised with a hand-bag that my mum bought for my nan in the late 1960s when she was a young girl herself. I love bringing the past into the present through these clothes.

Val C did a great job on the hair and make-up especially the Victory Rolls, which are pretty tricky on such long fine hair.

Check out some behind the scenes pics from the shoot – anyone that knows me will wonder how I grew so tall standing next to Antonia?!
