Be­hind the scenes at our GLAM­OUR’S Most GLAM­OUROUS shoots

What went on be­hind the lens at our GLAM­OUR’S Most GLAM­OUROUS 2016 shoots.

Glamour (South Africa) - - La Une -

What do you get when you com­bine a room full of designer gowns and killer heels, masses of makeup, two great pho­tog­ra­phers, a full fash­ion team and 10 beau­ti­ful SA fash­ion­istas? Stel­lar style in­spi­ra­tion, that’s what! And that’s ex­actly what we got at this year’s GLAM­OUR’S Most GLAM­OUROUS shoots in Cape Town and Joburg. Here’s what went on.

The set­ting

The pop­u­lar and pres­ti­gious Taboo Night Club – a favourite of Bo­nang Matheba, Shashi Naidoo and Da LES – was the set­ting for our Joburg shoot, while mir­ror­balls and chan­de­liers were the or­der of the day at Cape Town’s Coco – the play­ground of choice for Nicky Romero, Cassie and Tinie Tem­pah on their re­cent trips to our shores.

The team

Pho­tog­ra­pher Jonathan Tay­lor, his team and videog­ra­pher Ty­ron Mar­shall cap­tured ev­ery glam­orous mo­ment in Cape Town, while pho­tog­ra­pher Dar­ren Gwynn worked his magic with our win­ners in Joburg.

The am­bi­ence

From the early morn­ing start to the end of the day, you could feel the ex­cite­ment and hap­pi­ness in the air as our win­ners and teams se­lected gowns and an­gles, chat­ted away and con­sumed masses of cof­fee. Not sur­pris­ingly, fash­ion was a fre­quent topic of con­ver­sa­tion (ev­ery­one loved Noni Gasa’s metal­lic Miu Miu brogues), but there was plenty talk of ro­mance, too, with the ladies cheer­fully pro­vid­ing re­la­tion­ship ad­vice to our fash­ion in­tern Kirsten Reuter.

The style

The mood for the day was the beau­ti­ful things in life, with an em­pha­sis on daz­zling jewels, shim­mer­ing de­tails and fig­ure­flat­ter­ing sil­hou­ettes. Our 10 in­cred­i­ble win­ners were decked out in designer gowns by Gavin Ra­jah, Gal­luzziegini and KLÛK CGDT, heels by Europa Art Shoes and jew­ellery by Co­lette by Co­lette Hay­man. Think the old-school glam­our and lux­ury of an ex­clu­sive Hol­ly­wood event. Af­ter all, at GLAM­OUR, we be­lieve that ev­ery woman should be the belle of the ball, and our fash­ion team cer­tainly en­joyed dress­ing th­ese belles!

The beauty

With a flick of the wrist and a flip of the hair, our win­ners were trans­formed into red-car­pet di­vas by makeup artists Kelly Paitaki and Les­ley Whitby, and hair­styl­ists Richard Wilkin­son and Kel­lyJean Gil­bert. And since GLAM­OUR’S Most GLAM­OUROUS 2016 is held in as­so­ci­a­tion with L’oréal Paris, an ap­pro­pri­ately fash­ion­able brand, all of the makeup used for our shoot was kindly spon­sored by this ex­pert in­ter­na­tional com­pany. The beauty mood: bold red lips and beau­ti­ful golds, bronzes and choco­lates for the eyes. Curls, waves and up­dos chimed per­fectly with the old-hol­ly­wood vibe. And the fi­nal de­tail? Plenty of laugh­ter. Af­ter all, what’s the point of glam­our if it doesn’t go with a great time?
