So, I’m just posting to apologise for the fact I’ve disappeared for a while. Been really hectic settling back at home, with loads of stuff to organise and catch up on (at least with uni there was a schedule to the stressfulness, whereas now it’s everywhere!).
But, I promise I’ll be back on form and posting soon – hopefully this Sunday I’ll have a full length post up! I’m also hoping to upload some of my longer written pieces for you guys to peruse when you have time, so keep a look out for that as well.
So I was hoping that this week I’d be able to get a blog post written even with all the revision I have currently going on (I even did some stuff in advance). However, it looks like that’s not going to be the case – I have some notes and images, but I don’t have anything that I would feel comfortable or happy actually publishing on here. Sorry! Tis the hard life of a uni student.
However, I’m not going to leave you completely in the lurch! You’ll still get something to cool to read (or look at!), it just won’t be mine, and it won’t be on this blog. Since my mind is currently crumbling into pieces, I thought maybe I could give you some help getting yours into the same state, and blow your mind with the Universe and it’s scale!
This is The Scale of the Universe, and even as a physicist, it completely blew my mind when I first saw it. It’s one thing knowing the numbers, another completely trying to comprehend them.
Hope that gives you a bit of fun, and sorry for the temporary exam hiatus! Back to schedule next week, I promise.
P.S. Also, once exams are over I’ll be uploading some essays, and other written work of mine for you guys to read if you want – quite a bit longer, but I’m far better at essay writing than I am at blog writing, so probably far more interesting!
So, the Diesel Pre-Fall campaign just came out, and you’ll never guess who’s in it! (Or, well, you probably will given that I’m posting it here, but anyway.) ME! It’s all rather exciting, and a massive privilege to be part of, especially it being Nicola Formichetti’s first fully-formed ready-to-wear collection, and the photos are by the amazing Nick Knight.
It was such a great shoot to work on, with so many lovely people – both the other models, the make-up, hair and nails team who worked in tandem with the stylists to keep us looking beautiful, and pretty much EVERYONE (especially the catering team, cause DAMN the food was good!). And I’m so happy and excited with how the photos came out – inspired by the classical, with Michelangelo edges, but with a ‘pop-Picasso’ take on the whole thing. As Formichetti puts it, it’s neo-neo-classical.
The images are from here, where you can find a few more close-ups which I didn’t include (partially because you can already see them in the bigger pictures, and partially because, well, this is a blog about me, hah).

So, today was the release of an editorial I’m in! It’s called ‘The Elegant Universe‘ and published in V magazine, and was shot by Nick Knight, and styled by the lovely Amanda Harlech (and then there’s so many other awesome people who worked on it – Sam McKnight, Marian Newman – pretty much everyone was awesome).
It’s really inspired by the artistry and elegance of mathematics and beauty, and vice versa – how maths and science turn up in art. It was such an amazing thing to shoot – firstly because I love everyone on the SHOWstudio team & co (they’re like some sort of fashion family to me), so I was comfortable with everyone and in my element, but also because (as you’ve probably realised by now) the junction between science and art is my element. If you watch the video, everything I babble on about in the video is straight from my head, no prompts or practice.
You should definitely go check it out – not least because this weeks posts are sort of inspired by the themes that inspired the shoot (or at least the tangents that I managed to babble on about, not all of which made the cut for the video). Also, because it’s turned out really well, and for all you geeks – there are 3D scans involved! It’s for both the science and the art nerds!
