Valentino Dress and Poncho / Tabitha Simmons Flats

Every season it’s a tradition to visit the Valentino showroom to choose a look for their show, and this has to be my favourite look to date. I couldn’t decide if I loved it more because it was so unassuming for Valentino and no one would have thought it was from their collection, or if it was because I’ve always dreamt of finding a quirky two piece that isn’t the typical pant suit silhouette.

Unfortunately due to our shoot for vogue.com being straight after the show I didn’t have a chance to shoot this outfit. Luckily Hana caught me just before I ran inside for the show, so now these photos are the best memories I have of it!

Total Valentino Fall/Winter 15/16 Looks

During Paris Fashion Week I had the opportunity to work on something incredibly special for Valentino and vogue.com. After appearing on vogue.com several times before (thank you for having me in your ‘Best Looks for 2014 Round-Up’!), we decided to work on an exclusive shoot for one of my favourite designers Valentino.

It was hard enough trying to choose which runway looks I wanted during the show without the added excitement of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson making their runway debut for perhaps one of the most unexpected and memorable finales in fashion week history. Once the show was over I sent across my reference shots of these two key looks from the runway, 10 minutes later the pieces emerged from backstage and we were on our way to shoot them before catching our flight back to Sydney 3 hours later. I think the quote ‘Hot off the runway’ couldn’t apply more to this, and I’m still in awe of being the first person to experience and capture some fleeting moments in these incredibly memorable pieces.

 Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Here is my latest work for none other than Ralph Lauren, shot along the freezing streets of New York City. I worked on this campaign for Ralph Lauren’s social media, but we fell in love with the images that I wanted to share them with you here as well. I think being able to shoot these stunning runway pieces made it easy to justify bearing the cold for this and even falling sick afterward. The billowing khaki maxi dress could quickly breathe new life into anyone, myself included.

How to Wear Olive http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/04/how-to-wear-olive http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/04/how-to-wear-olive#comments Sun, 05 Apr 2015 21:30:53 +0000 http://garypeppergirl.com/?p=25423 This scarf has to be my new favourite travel essential, and has been accompanying my on every flight I've taken over the past six weeks.]]>

I Love Mr Mittens Scarf / Christopher Esber Top and Cardigan / Altuzarra Coat / Charlotte Olympia Kitty Bag / CH by Carolina Herrera Boots 

This was basically me trying to find whatever was the thickest and warmest outfit I possessed within my suitcase. Luckily there seemed to be a theme of layers of olive to match the layers of thermals that were hidden beneath – that’s three layers of each and six in total. Not being able to bend your elbows and waddling through shows is so chic.

This scarf has to be my new favourite travel essential, and has been accompanying my on every flight I’ve taken over the past six weeks. The unusual colour is easier than I thought to style and I’m tempted to invest in other colour ways for the winter months that are fast approaching in Australia.

My thoughts on how to wear olive? Just wear it all at once with any neutrals you have. Anything with a cat face on it also goes a long way…

#NYFW Diary http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/04/nyfw-diary-2 http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/04/nyfw-diary-2#comments Sat, 04 Apr 2015 20:30:27 +0000 http://garypeppergirl.com/?p=25430 So let's jump back to New York Fashion Week, where it was easily the coldest and harshest winter months I think any of us have experienced thus far during fashion week. ]]>

#NYFW 12 – 19th February 

It’s amazing what one full day in front of my computer can do, so expect to see an influx of posts over the coming week or two. I thought I’d start when my travels first began for the fashion month season, which since then has been perhaps my craziest travel schedule to date, jumping from New York to Sydney, Paris, Sydney again, Paris again, Switzerland, the Maldives, Sydney, Japan and Sydney again in the space of a few weeks. I’m leaving for Paris again today for work, and will be stopping over in LA to film a new project before heading back to Sydney for MBFWA.

So let’s jump back to New York Fashion Week, where it was easily the coldest and harshest winter months I think any of us have experienced thus far during fashion week. There wasn’t any amount of thermals or layers that could protect us from this bone chilling weather, and looking back I realise just how important it is to take care of yourself when the weather is so unbearably cold and unforgiving. Unfortunately I fell quite ill after doing a photo shoot all day outside for a client, so I spent the following weeks completely run down and I was forced to let my body rest, which may have contributed to my posts slowing down on top of a full schedule.

A special thank you to SIXTY 6 Columbus and SIXTY LES for hosting Madelyn and I for the week. I’ve worked with a few hotels over the past few seasons and the LES Hotel easily felt like our own mini New York apartment nestled away in such a idyllic location.
