Miss Jessica Horton for Grazia.it. Lovely Jess who smiled and laughed through everything our afternoon shoot involved: shooting in a sweet shop (complete with a giant Refreshers* sign) while giggling teenage girls looked on, getting on the back of a motorbike belonging to some random guys (the photos have been resigned to the never-to-be-seen folder as both Jess and I agreed that they were never going to be our fav photos), changing in some stinky public toilets (why is the floor of public toilets always so revolting? hellooooo aiming is not that hard;), having our bags eyed off by a very dodgy man in Hampstead Heath, arguing with the mini-cab driver about the exact location of said Hampstead Heath (literally 8 mins drive from where we were photographing). Not once did Jess complain or stop flashing her crazy beautiful smile.
Jessica is a Design Assistant at Topshop. You can find the full feature on Grazia.it here. Jess works across the dresses and skirts departments helping the head designers to create the range. And as you can imagine her wardrobe (note the double rack of clothes in the photos below) is full of pieces from Topshop- she is a walking advertisement for them! In fact the first time I met Jess (although I didn't know it was her until last September when I photographed her again) was outside the Topshop Unique show in September 2009 when she was wearing one of the Christopher Kane for Topshop crocodile dresses. The photographs that I took of Jess outside of Topshop Unique show in September 2010 were probably my fav from LFW that season.....Jess does that 70's boho chic look so well. Apart from boho, Jess is loving a bit of 90's grunge at the moment.
Jess has a blog which she started at the beginning of this year, My Oh My, which you can find here.
Jess's outfits?
Floral Romper: vintage; Tank top (vintage) and navy floral trousers (Topshop) with pink heels from H&M; Orange and Black jumpsuit (H&M) with black floppy hat from Urban Outfitters. Love the cutouts of this daisy chain dress: way to flash a teeny bit of skin without revealing too much. Current season Topshop with Swedish Hasbeens for H&M shoes. Denim top and skirt Topshop. Thank you very much to Sugacane sweets shop in Camden for letting us shoot there. Jess = The New Refreshers Girl!
*I have never tried a Refresher lolly but apparently they are a traditional English sweet. All fizzy and fruity and rather yummy according to Jess!
