See Every Look From My Digital Campaign With Jimmy Choo

Finally – the big reveal of why we were in the Maldives with Jimmy Choo. There were beach bonfires, al fresco dinners under the stars, scuba diving and beauty chit chats, but it wasn’t all play. I was there to be a part of Jimmy Choo’s upcoming digital campaign, featuring their latest summer-ready collection and the lens of photographer Candice Lake. We battled the sun, waves, freezing morning beach breeze and narrow parapets. (I think I may have spotted a school of reef sharks swimming by while the sunglasses shot was taken, so there’s that as well. I know they don’t attack humans, but still.) It was one of the hardest shoots I’ve ever been on, but I had so much fun. It was such an incredible experience.
There are three looks in total: day, evening and a close-up of a super sleek pair of sunglasses that can withstand water and waves even though it features glitter fabric behind the lenses. I also love how the shoes used in my day and evening looks could be easily swapped or taken out of the beach and into a lunch appointment or after-work drinks. They’re so versatile. Tell me, which shot do you like best?
