I have never been one for following fashions, and instead of reading a glossy magazine to see the latest/hottest/must have style, I like finding my inspiration in history. It is basically exactly the same thing that the fashion-mongers do, but I get to exercise the creative muscles if I can think up ideas for myself, and I don’t end up following the pack.
After our Roman photo-shoot, I quickly transformed Alessia from ancient goddess to a more modern version.
In ancient times, the hair at the back would have been tightly wound into ringlets, but I went for a more lived in look, with the front hair taken up around some gold ribbon. Makeup is kept simple with golden tones in the eye-shadow and smokey black liner for a sophisticated look. And there you go! Ready to go out.
