The Red Statement Blazer

April 5, 2017

I for one am a sucker for a blazer; I have a dozen different colours/styles hung up in my wardrobe (or say packed in my suitcase, depending on where I am jetting off to).

And lets be honest, we all love the classic black blazer. I mean, it is sophisticated, timeless and forever classy…how can it ever do you wrong? BUT now summer is approaching I think it is time to give the loyal black blazer a well deserved rest and maybe swap it for a statement piece instead… how about RED?

This is one of favourite blazers I bought from Zara not so long along. I like to style around the blazer or even rock it as a suit (I have the matching trousers of course).

OHHH and I don’t suggest walking around in nothing but a bikini and your blazer… just like I did for one of my most recent photo shoots. It was a lot colder than it looks… trust me.

Sunset Series

November 12, 2015

Sunset Series By Carlo Parducho

Shot by LA based commercial photographer at The Grafton on Sunset (Sunset Boulevard).

Thankfully the weather is pretty much always Sunny in Los Angeles so shooting in October was never going to be a worry.

It was a pleasure to shoot with Carlo; he is fun, creative, easy going and professional! I am already looking forward to shooting with him again soon… HEY any excuse to get back to LA 😛

I try to be as versatile as possible so the images are slightly different to some of my previous shoots.

New wave of brave brides

October 14, 2015

New wave of brave brides…

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… see-through?

New York’s Bridal Fashion Week saw near-naked models strut down the runway in some rather risky designs. It seems the desire to wear these raunchy gowns have grown from the start of the year and now sheer translucent bridal gowns are being welcomed onto the isle. Some of the gowns have a deep plunging neckline, whilst others opt for super thigh high splits or even complete nipple exposure. It is one way to demand the crowds attention and another to push bridal wear into the next millennia.

Is it time to wave goodbye to the big puffy under skirts, long statement trains, lace veils and tiaras??? Surely not… but for those brave another to wear these daring gowns make sure you kitted out with nipple covers and maybe some heavy duty tit tape.

LCF fashion Show 15 Designer: Edda Grimes

July 15, 2015

London College of Fashion (LCF) Fashion Show 15

Here are a few behind the scenes shots of me modelling for Edda Grimes at the LCF Fashion Show 11/07/15

Edda Gimnes’s illustrated monochromatic outfits, proved a punchy statement as models transformed into real life 3D fashion illustrations by manifesting a hand drawn 2D effect that surely left us wanting for more.

Using mainly a white canvas as the backdrop to her approach, thick black ‘pen lines’ stood out for all the right reasons amongst the overlooking crowd.

The work felt almost surreal as models who resembled moving imagery caught your eye at halt, details such as gloves, headwear and eyewear were all incorporated within the dress and suit designs.

This was my ‘first look’ of the day and I thoroughly enjoyed rocking this awesome outfit. I felt like a 3D re-vamped Audrey Hepburn. I thought the accessories i.e. hats, sunnies and gloves were a fab finishing statement and completed the look perfectly.

Spot A Fake Model Agency

June 22, 2015

Who should you trust?…
How to spot a fake model agency

Having been contacted numerous times by so called and emailed by model agents, in the U.K and oversees, I am extremely wary of the growth and intelligence of this (well organised) industry. BE AWARE!

I would like to keep young adults (particularly women) aware of fake model agencies and show you how to avoid rogue model counts and agents. 
There are many model agencies that take on girls as young as 14 years old, therefore it is extremely important to be cautious. Even the well experiences and well travelled models can be affected or targeted. There are a number of background checks you can undertake when being contacted by a model scout

How to spot a FAKE Model Agency:

  1. Ask questions. A good, legitimate agency should have no problem providing you with detailed answers about their company and should gladly offer references if needed. If the person with whom you are speaking is hesistant to reveal information or is very eager to have you sign a contract and pay upfront fees, chances are you’re dealing with a scam. Stay away from agencies who aggressively advertise in the newspaper, free local magazines or on the radio. Well-known, reputable agencies don’t need to advertise.
  2. Find out if the agency signs talent for free or if they charge upfront fees. A modeling agency that requires you to pay fees for representation before you get any work is not legitimate. Most agencies should explain on their website that they don’t charge any fees and will only take a percentage of what you are paid when you get work. If an agency requires you to send money or pay for a professional photographer to develop your portfolio before you sign with them, then they’re probably not legit.
  3. Note if the agency lists clients they’ve represented and the types of jobs they book for their models. Look through the agency’s roster of models and examine the quality of work they’ve done.
  4. Legitimate modeling agencies operate during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 to 5. If a modeling agency wants you to meet in the evening or on the weekend, it’s probably not a safe bet. Look for the agency’s business license when you visit. If it is in plain view, then it’s a legitimate modeling agency. Note whether they display high-quality photographs of their models. If you see photos that look cheesy or look scanned or photocopied, then you’ve probably stumbled on a fake.
  5. Be wary of an agency that pushes you to pay for services such as classes and photoshoots. Real agencies provide these services to their models for free.
  6. Review all contracts and paperwork carefully. Legitimate agencies only take money from their clients on commission. At the time of publication, they usually take about 20 percent from the jobs you book

P.S – Always check the email address you have received an email from. If it looks legitimate, click ‘reply’ and make sure the domain details are still the same as the agency. If you are contacted by someone claiming to be from a model agency, feel free to email our team here on management@chloeothen.com and we’ll contact the agency on your behalf to report the abuse.

Be safe…

Miss Universe GB Biography

June 21, 2015

My Miss Universe GB Biography

I am 24 years young living in cosmopolitan London. As a professional in finance I am also a model having had success with major brands and high street names. Being the eldest of eight children, I am blessed with a close family bond. During my school years I completed my GCSE’s a year earlier than required and was awarded a drama scholarship that ended with a guildhall performing arts exam and qualification.

I dream big, set goals and most of the time achieve enough to satisfy my thirst. This drive has rallied my many charity fund raising efforts. Dedication to health and fitness is one of my key interests; this often sets me up for new challenges such as skiing and participating in mud runs. Besides travelling, enjoying food, blogging, soaking up the latest fashion and business news, I study German and strive to be fluent.

I am ambitious, motivated and committed to achieving in all that I put my mind to. I believe competing in Miss Universe GB is not only empowering but it also inspires women to be the best version of themselves; someone all encompassing, rounded and honest. It is my dream to be a good role model not only for the youth of today but also for women worldwide. I look forward to the finals and am fortunate to have the opportunity to be a finalist.

It would be my greatest honor to represent Great Britain in Miss Universe 2015. I will wear the title with utmost pride whilst dedicating myself to the role. It will mean absolutely everything to me to become Miss Universe GB 2015.

Who would have thought that in 1952, a local “bathing beauty” competition spearheaded by Catalina Swimwear in Long Beach, CA would transform into an international annual tradition with countless young women around the world vying to become a part of Miss Universe history? As millions of fans have watched around the globe, the contest has evolved into a powerful, year-round,  international organization that advances and supports opportunities for these young women.

These women are savvy, goal-oriented and aware. The delegates who become part of the Miss Universe Organization display those characteristics in their everyday lives, both as individuals, who compete with hope of advancing their careers, personal and humanitarian goals, and as women who seek to improve the lives of others.

Passing of the Crown * 21st September 2014 *

September 26, 2014

SO my year as Miss Earth England has finally come to an end! What an incredible journey it has been. I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to compete at the international finals in Philippines for just less than one month with 90 beautiful ladies; it was an experience of a lifetime.

I am very lucky to have such a huge support network. Thank you to my family and friends who came to watch me win and who have been there for me all year round. Thank you to all the Miss Earth fans from around the world that have constantly supported me. All your lovely comments and emails have been much appreciated!

I worked so hard in the run up to the final and when I won the chance to represent England at one of the Top 3 pageants in the world it was a dream come true. I carried on my hard work all year round. I have always been involved with raising funds for various charities so I was thrilled to win the charity award last year as this meant so much to me especially as I was able to raise money for RSPCA in Leybourne; a charity close to my heart.

During my month in the Philippines I absorbed so much knowledge about the earth, different countries, environment, marine conservation, ecotourism, etc… I made some amazing friends for life from all around the world and built up so many superb memories!

All of the girls were asked to donate a gift from their respective countries in order to raise funds for the Typhoon Victims. My Great Granddad made a solid silver bangle, which I donated. It was the first bangle he ever made and I hope it will be cherished by its new owner.

I planted trees, taught school children about problems we face worldwide, ways to be eco friendly and information about the environment, visited orphanages, spent time with seriously sick children and typhoon victims, ate in the most amazing restaurants, made speeches on stage, performed my Shakespeare monologue at the talent round, gala dinners, gave interviews, got involved in all the challenges, had the most amazing spa day, met mayors of cities, ate so much food, pizza parties with the girls, karaoke on the bus, made a kite, collected a stash of about a gazillion biscuits, donuts, chocolate and crackers, walked in charity catwalk shows, got involved in various arts and crafts, I got the chance to travel to another island; Sorsogon, fell in love with Halo Halo… The list is endless!

When I competed in the final for the Miss Earth 2013 crown on stage I knew there was absolutely nothing more I could of done. 100% effort goes into everything I do. Even for me at the end of the pageant I was all glam’ed out! Picture Perfect everyday in heels, I have never smiled so much in my life 😀

Thank you to all of my sponsors for helping me prepare for the international finals, thank you to the director of Miss Earth Louise and to the judges last year for choosing me to represent England; I am so grateful. I would like to wish Justine, Gabriella, Yasmin and Romy representing the UK in this year’s Miss Earth final all the best! Enjoy every single moment of your time wearing the crown and having the opportunity to represent your country. I know you ladies will rock the Philippines <3 If you ever need any advice/information please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

Lots of Love,

Chloé xXx
