This Charming Girl

The end of one season and the start of a new always brings us fresh bolts of inspiration. Which is why we got together with photographer and Glasshouse regular Laura Allard-Flesichl for our latest editorial.

We spent a day in a south London studio with model, body activist and photographer, Emma Breschi. Emma is a real one off. With Italian and Filipino heritage, a killer body and the sweetest dog, Lebron (who joined us in the studio), we couldn’t have had more fun with her. Face masks, rooftops and snakeskin boots all made an appearance, alongside some great outfits from the likes of Charlie May and JH Zane.

Emma has such amazing skin, so when it came to makeup, we turned to RMS Beauty for a few key looks. Lids went from glossy and candy pink using Lip Shine in Sublime, layered over Lip2Cheek in Smile, to metallic copper, with a little help from RMS’ Eye Polish in Lucky. Skin was packed with dew and glow aplenty and hair was kept tousled and textured, thanks to Glasshouse senior stylist Matt Benns.

All in all, we were charmed by Emma and her positive approach to fashion, size, and the modelling industry as a whole. Watch this space for more from this girl and scroll down to see the full story.
