GLAMOUR SHOOT | BEHIND-THE-SCENES


On a blustery but bright March day, a 12-strong team representing Glamour magazine sped on the 6:40am train from London down to Rye for a day of shooting for skincare brand Vichy and its

Ideal Soleil suncare range.

When we weren't filming and shooting on the beach, we were scoffing a bottomless supply of croissants in the dreamy location house, every corner of which was beautifully Instagrammable and shoot-worthy in itself – think distressed painted wooden tables and chairs, huge squishy sofas, bunkbeds and antique-style mirrors. Plus it was raised on a wooden decking with American Dream-style picket fencing skirting its perimeter. Needless to say Team Glamour was ready to move in.

We were lucky enough to have some mega talents on board, including super stylist Julia Brenard, photography's finest Alex Bramall, hair hero Stephen Beaver and make-up guru Akgun Manisali, all of whom are responsible for creating many of the glossy magazine covers you see lining newsstands (just check their links to see). And it's fair to say there was a lot of love between our crew that day. Our only regret was not renting our beach house overnight so we could celebrate a successful shoot that evening in style.

Here’s a mini scrapbook of some of the behind-the-scenes action.
