I was lucky enough to be dressing Montana Cox who was an absolute babe. And had the most incredible dress of the entire show in my opinion. I may be a little buyist though because I am head over heels in love with Willow at the moment, their dresses are to die for.
The photos don't do justice to the colour of this amazing dress. Think Tiffany green.
A couple of the interns I spent the day talking to. Met Patrick on the day and turns out that we already knew eachother through tumblr. Didn't realise until I heard someone say his last name. You can check out his blogspot here and his Tumblr here.
Jo interns with Bianca and I on Fridays at Marie Claire. It was such a pleasant surprise walking in and seeing her lovely face a couple weeks into interning there. She just started that day. We had gone to the same high schools at the same times although she is a year above me and although we had never had a proper conversation it was as if we had been friends all along.
Singlet / Lulu and Rose
Skirt / Cotton On
Shoes / Wanted Shoes
Necklace / Opa Designs
Watch / Casio
One of the models I dressed was wearing a 10kg Sass and Bide outfit with these ridiculously great Louboutin's which the whole time reminded me of SBTRKT. Above and below are just some pics from backstage of the models and their beautiful outfits.
This is a perfect photo to summarise my experience, weird, kooky, designer labels, overtired, but it was super fun.
Although this was just backstage and it doesn't really give you an accurate portrayal of the whole event. Throughout the event we were sitting backstage following the hashtag #pdmc and continually refreshing the @Marie_Claire_Au instagram to follow what was happening on the other side of the wall. Below I have selected a few different photos from different instagrams to in a way tell you a little story of the event. Who was their, where it was, what they ate, where they sat, who won awards etc.
Here is a full list of the winners off the Marie Claire Website for the Prix De Marie Claire Awards #PDMC.
