Opposites attract, or so they say. I think within every woman we have an opposition of forces- a gentleness that allows us to empathise, to love. The other is a toughness, resilience that powers us through tough times, through adversity, through childbirth.
When my dear friend and makeup artist Isobel Claire asked me on board to style this beauty focused editorial, I jumped at the chance once I saw Lucy Blay, the incredibly exotic model who stars in the spread.
A soft flower crown with blue blush is transformative and is set against a gold crown and forked nails, a sort of ying and yang which embodies that strength and softness within us all.
