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.

Classic Chanel

October 15, 2015

Classic Chanel

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous

This year marks the revolutionary Chanel shoulder bag’s 60th anniversary, and it is just as popular now, if not more than it was in 1955.

I think I speak on behalf of billions of fashion-obsessed girls when I say a classic Chanel flap bag is something you aspire to own from birth. The bags are timeless, elegant and ooze high fashion glamour.

A classic Chanel bag is one of those must have items, like Louboutin heels or a Burberry trench.

 

‘I NEED this bag in my life’

 

Here are 10 reasons as to why you should own a Chanel flap bag.

  1. Chanel regularly increases it’s prices so the bags tend to hold their value well for years. This means that buying one now isn’t too risky and can be considered an investment.
  2. You can always sell the bag and recoup most, if not all of your money.
  3. Owning one makes you feel like you are in an exclusive elite.
  4. The flap bag has ‘inspired’ so many designers to date. If you are going to buy one, you might as well get the original.
  5. The Chanel flap bag in caviar leather will last a lifetime.
  6. The bags are still price-prohibitive so not everyone will be able to own one.
  7. The Chanel Boy Bag was a game changer
  8. There is a wait list for Chanel bags which no one speaks of.
  9. There are so many Vintage Chanel bags still available on the market because they never go out of fashion.
  10. It is Chanel!

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.

BURBERRY – London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015

September 16, 2015

BURBERRY – London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 – Looking back at last year…

With a Bohemian style and feel at the Burberry showcase in 2015, Burberry sent models down the runway dressed in patchwork floral printed dresses. Huge ponchos were the order of the day and shades of berry, ochre, teal and chocolate were this seasons flavours.

The collection was inspired by a mixture of folk craft in Britain and used quilting, whip-stitching and ornate embroidery on Burberry’s signature trench coats, as well as lace and crochet detailing across its delicate silk dresses.

The show, one of the starriest on the London Fashion Week calendar saw a number of big names in fashion in the front seats. Model veterans Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell were there along with photographer Mario Testino, as well as models of the moment Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn.

The show was supported with a live performance by British singer Clare Maguire. Burberry, which regularly invites young British music talent to perform at their shows, has in the past seen performances by Paloma Faith, Tom Odell and James Bay.

London Fashion Week begins next week and I am crazy about Burberry to see what they have in store for us this year. This is a brand I have always wished to be a part of #WhoKnowsWhatTheFutureHolds 😉

Paris and the Eiffel Tower with Chloe…Parisian getaway!

July 20, 2015

Check out Paris and the Eiffel Tower with Chloe. Dreaming of a Parisian getaway!

Four years ago this summer I found myself being whisked away on a romantic getaway to Paris. If there is one thing you MUST do whilst exploring Paris it is to visit the magnificent Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the champ de mars in Paris, France.

It has become a global cultural icon of France and is one of the most recognisable structures in the world. As well as being the tallest structure in Paris, it is also the most visited monument in the world.

It is not surprising that the Eiffel Tower witnesses so many marriage proposals. It is a magical 324m Parisian icon, scaling three floors with panoramic views of the city.

If romance is what you are after you can chink glasses in the top floor champagne bar overlooking the city and if you wait to visit the tower after dark the tower sparkles every hour on the hour with 20,000 gold lights… Heck, it doesn’t get more romantic then that.

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

Text taken from: http://1ndependent15.co.uk/designers/womenswear/trompe-loeil-reborn/

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…

Pretty Little Thing Launch Night at The Sanderson Hotel, London.

I had a great evening with my girl friends at the launch of Pretty Little Thing!

The Prosecco was flowing and the canapés kept on appearing! The venue; ‘The Sanderson Hotel’ in London was a perfect location choice. It was packed with fashionistas, stylists, press, magazine editors, bloggers, celebs, MUA’s and a whole bunch of awesome people. The DJ played all the the right tracks to get everyone in the party mood; it was a great atmosphere.

The photo booth was definitely the highlight of my night… I am a serious sucker for a fancy dress photo booth – what is there not to LOVE?!!!
