Goodness me am I finally happy to post this. These looks and images have been the bane of my existence for the past day, hence me being slightly AWOL. Alright, that’s slightly dramatic, yes. But it’s true! The result, however, I love.
I initially wanted to share this with you all on my rezday, tomorrow (Tuesday 19th Aug) but I figured that this post doesn’t actually really have anything to do with a rezday, so yeah, you’re getting it early! Lucky you.
This post is a continuation of my music video look recreations I’ve been doing lately, but a whole lot bigger. Today you’re getting three looks in one! And, goodness me, trying to spend the early hours of the morning attempting to move myself from pose to pose and change outfits without my camera moving seemed like an impossible feat, and it had definitely defeated me until I woke up this morning and realised I have a Malt (male alt) lying around. If you aren’t much into photography you might understand the problems I had, but if not let me tell you, I nearly threw this look out the window. I’m glad I persevered.
Lily Allen has been one of my favourite artists for a long, long time. Straight laced, sarcastic and unafraid to speak her mind, her music often parodies our society and its views on body image and the like. In her recent music video for ‘Our Time’, Lily plays three, well, four (a woman dressed in a hotdog costume) women all with their own styles going out into town for a night out. They ride along in the back of a taxi, drink, get drunk and don’t pay their cab fee. It’s fab, really. Very true to a London night out.
I’ve tried my best to recreate these looks as well as I could. Slightly different to my usual set up, each style card is listed below as opposed to being at the top of the post, as I didn’t want to crowd the header image with walls of text.
I hope you like today’s post and images. Let me know if you would like me to do more challenging looks like this in the future. I certainly enjoyed it a lot!
