A Very Swellegant Affair


One of the most favourite parts of what I do is the transformations, the makeovers and the photoshoots, here’s a look at the most recent makeovers I have done.  All MUAH and styling by me and Pics by Brooke Orchard Photography.

These lovely ladies came from every direction of Sydney, they also came from different lifestyles, careers, circumstances with one common thread… they wanted to do this for them, it was their time, they were worth it and it was a pamper session to indulge themselves.  I am so blessed to be a part of their individual journey and although these Mini shoots are only but a couple of hours , the effect and memory last a lifetime.  It’s a feel good exercise thats for sure.   Thanks Clare, Tash, Karen, Kathy, Polly & Liz for trusting us with your makeover memories.   click here to see FULL GALLERY

Who’s is Marian Marsh?  she was the inspiration for my 1930’s hair tutorial above.  A gorgeous, yet little known, actress from the 30’s.

Born Violet Ethelred Krauth in Trinidad on 17/10/1913 and Died 9/11/2006 in Palm Springs California.  One of the early sound era’s most attractive young leading ladies, doll-faced Marian Marsh enjoyed a short yet significant film career as the star of several memorable 1930s melodramas opposite some of the cinema’s best, most charismatic lead actors. Her youthful, wide-eyed innocence combined with an innate delicacy to make a storybook heroine who was the perfect counterbalance to the licentious characters who often menaced her on film. So successful was she as a damsel in distress that she quickly became typecast, which impeded her development as an actress and helped bring her film career to a premature end.  READ MORE

Til next time,

Stay Charming,

Miss Chrissy xx
