There is nothing like going for a photoshoot to help you feel sexier, more comfortable with your body and more powerful. You not only feel like a model, but thanks to all the magic created by the stylists, make-up artists, photographers and yes, even the lighting guy, you also look like a model.
This priviledge doesn’t have to be reserved for the beautiful of Hollywood and the models of Milan, even us ordinary folk can explore out of the ordinary and book a professional photo shoot.
Celebrating the joy of photo shoots, I was checking out some of the A-listers latest work in that arena and would you believe some of these women are over 40!
For starters 41-year-old Naomi Campbell is one of the original supermodels, but hasn’t slowed down a single bit. Just days after being Robert Cavalli’s showstopper in Milan, she appeared in V Magazine, in a shoot inspired by the larger-than-life spirit of Tina Turner. The black and white shots taken by Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi were named “Private Dancer”. This precedes the release of Soul Sister a musical inspired by the lives of Ike and Tina Turner premiering at London’s Hackney Empire on April 19.
