White Mischief

White Mischief..

My photographer chum James Burton and I were delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with our favourite lingerie brand, Fred & Ginger Lingerie, on this gorgeous shoot.

With the aid of the delightful Chelsea at the New Faces division of Storm Models, James and I held a casting at Storm HQ. Having met a succession of exquisite creatures (some of whom we made a mental note of for future projects), we mutually agreed on Penelope. James and I bumped into Penelope on the Kings Road after the casting. I tapped her on the shoulder and said "you're booked". She looked at me wide eyed with genuine excitement and gave James and I a huge hug. It was like being embraced by a giant. Now I know what it feels like to be Tom Cruise.

As sweet as a 19 year old girl could possibly be and wrapped up in the body of Jessica Rabbit, Penelope was the closest thing to Aphrodite I'm sure I'll ever see in real life. I have a feeling she has the makings of an Agent Provocateur star or Victoria's Secret Angel.

Blessed with a fabulously grand abode in North London to shoot in, we pulled two sumptuous collections from our friends at Fred & Ginger Lingerie, one Bridal and another entitled Animal Instincts, and set to work with our hair guru pal Joel Benjamin to shoot two separate lingerie stories.

Below are the Bridal images. Simply click on the shots to enlarge:

  1. I must agree with you. Your model, Penelope, is truly beautiful. And she seems to be experienced in modeling. She managed to pose seductively without looking vulgar. Are there any more photos? I’d like to see more with the subject against different backdrops. I particularly like the photo with a fireplace in the background – the antique feel of the fireplace made for a classic theme in the photo, and the choice of white lingerie made the model stand out.
