As I mentioned on my Instagram the other day – I would love to be living the life of the rich & famous, frolicking on yachts and hitting the red carpet in style at Cannes Film Festival. It would be the dream wouldn’t it? Yes, yes, it would be….I keep telling myself one day, one day!
As you know, we stayed in the most beautiful accommodation when we were in Benidorm with Jet2holidays and Visit Benidorm, which made for the best photoshoot location…EVER. I of course had to make the most of the stunning setting, so went a bit overboard with the outfit shoots…watch this space!
As it is Cannes Film Festival this week, I thought it would be fitting to celebrate with a bit of a Riviera themed post. Conveniently for me (even though I’d love to be invited to strut my stuff on the film festival’s red carpet wearing Alexandre Vauthier, Gucci or Giambattista Valli Haute Couture), I didn’t need to travel to the South of France to photograph an outfit.
With some sections of the hotel looking straight out of the Riviera, Benidorm’s Melia Villaitana, was the perfect spot to shoot my “day out on the super yacht, soaking up the sun, sipping £1000 champagne” look.
The outfit – made up of a red and white stripe bodycon dress, red and gold hardware detail belt, diamond encrusted snake shape statement earrings, a mini-handle bag, and flat white sandals – was the perfect mix of summer and glamour. While it’s not as glitzy as a red carpet look, it would still be perfect to wear while strutting your stuff on that marina!
