Hollywood in 2013

My next project was a personal one that I have been meaning to do for some time. I wanted to create a modern take on ‘hollywood glamour’ which has become increasingly popular since the 1920’s. The statement looks of Marilyn Monroe, Grace Jones, Audrey Hepburn, just to name a few, have laid a solid gold path in the beauty and fashion industries as to what is deemed beautiful in Western Culture. I like to experiment and draw inspiration from various cultures at different points in history;  this will be the first of many blogs that documents said work.

These simple elements make up looks that have lasted decades on the big screen and have soon found their way into the high street.
