I was sent something very interesting by Chambord black rasberry liqueur (not the actual drink - the lovely PR folk behind the drink!) who will be making a return to London Fashion Weekend (that's this weekend people) and will be bringing with it a touch of French chic to London's buzzing fashion scene.
Chambord are the spirit sponsor of the main bar - so expect lots of yummy cocktails on offer - and they will also be hosting the Chambord Platinum Club Lounge. Now why am I getting so excited about a berry flavoured liqueur I hear you ask (especially when I hardly ever drink). Well, Chambord are bringing with them leading fashion photographer Fabio Affuso, who will be teaching the stylish guests how to find their "fashion face." Affuso will share his expertise in the lounge, showing fashionistas how to strike a model-worthy pose and to ensure that you always look your most chic in photos! I like!
In the Chambord Platinum Club Lounge, guests receive a complimentary Chambord and champers, and a canape reception, while practising how to pose like a pro. Sound fun? Well, it's going on from now until Saturday, so if you fancy a fashion tutorial, here are the times to head down:
Today - between 1pm - 2pm and 9pm - 10pm
Saturday 24th - between 12:30pm - 1:30pm and 2:30pm to 3:30pm
If you can't make it, but want to know how to pose like a pro anyway, check out these top tips from the master:
1. The most important thing is to relax and feel good about yourself. If you feel fabulous you will look fabulous too!
2. Everyone feels most comfortable with one side of their face, and most likely that is their better side. Discover your better side and make it shine!
3. Light is very important too. Position yourself so that the light shapes your face and is onto your best side.
4. Some people love to pucker their lips and brows, but don't overdo it. It can look good with some faces, however, if you do it all the time soon your pictures will look all the same.
5. The best models are the ones who can offer different expressions and emotions trough their facial and body language. Try to offer to the camera something different all the time, don't get locked in one expression.
6. Remember to have fun!
