Play LOUD!

Earlier this week, I collaborated with my sister Jess to create 'outfit of the day' (ootd) photographs for her social media and blog. I was inspired by Rihanna’s cover of i-D’s music issue, No.335, Pre Spring 2015.

Lifestyle photography - Outfit of the day shoot

Rihanna's oversized denim on denim outfit and braids, down to the editing of the photos and overall vibe of her shoot, influenced my shoot. To get my photographs to look like Rihanna's cover, I first had to think about where I was going to shoot. I decided to used the same location as the one in my Newbies in London blog post. In my opinion, the colour and texture of the wall looked similar and aided in creating the mood. Jessica made styling decisions such as wearing a chocker instead of a nose ring as chockers are on trend this season.

Ever since this cover released i've been itching to create my own interpretation. I saw these photographs and was like 'YASSSSS!' Rihanna looks AMAZING! How many people can wear a pair of jeans they are practically swimming in, and still look great? I love editorial shoots that are edgy and different. The braids especially aid in making it unique as braids are a less common hairstyle choice for celebrities on the cover of a magazine.
