Ones that got away!

Yesterday I was lucky enough to get a behind the scenes taster of Gabby Young's music video for her next single ' Ones that got away'. Filmed in the stunning ex giraffe- house (!)
at 1 Park Village East, the video is a riot of colour, with Gabby wearing a dress that perfectly complemented her butterfly- filled hair. Check out her amazing multi-coloured manicure!

Of course the reality of filming is always a lot less glamour, a lot more keeping warm whilst wearing nothing but a very thin dress you're not allowed to sit down in and a whopping great pair of Balenciaga heels, but Gabby was still smiling when I left!She was in the very capable hands of director Stephen Bell, and stylist Jakob Brondum, who expertly tackled a dress that didn't want to stay up- which could have made for an altogether different sort of video!

Jakob and Dress vs Gravity....

Doing her make-up and hair was Jennifer Nash ( assisted by Hannah Esaias) who has created amazing looks for Gabby in the past, like this orchid face-tattoo which is one of my faves

I'll leave you with this image of Gabby trying to achieve just the right amount of wind..harder than it sounds!!!

Love the butterflies!
Also, this is the exact shade of red that I want my hair to be, but whatever dye I use it always comes out too dark. I'm tempted to take some of these photos into a salon.

Maybe you have to have lighter hair to start out with- so you may have to bleach your hair first, THEN dye it the shade of red you want...?

You're probably right. I don't think I'd have the guts to try that myself at home though. Definitely a salon job!
