Arnotts Spring Summer lingerie and swimwear press day 2014

Last week I modelled at the Arnotts press day for their Spring Summer lingerie and swimwear collection. The concept was to showcase their pieces which are suitable for all body types and various sizes. There were five models in total, Rosanna Davison, Daniella Moyles, Adrienne Murphy, fellow curvy model Seana Sweeney and myself. Post show came a press shoot with a small number of models. The look was very natural with a beautiful botanical theme styled by Linda Conway.

Linda opted for a variation of themes from soft pastel lingerie, to nautical inspired swimsuit looks, oriental inspiration and colour popping bikini shades. The head pieces channelled Lana Del Ray with a selection of fresh pastel flowers . They were so beautiful, something that would be an interesting alternative for a wedding perhaps. 

                                    Daniella wears - Mimi Holiday set. Bra €66, Briefs, €50.

Makeup was by freelance makeup artist Ashley O'Rourke who used a very natural but dewy look. Foundation was prepped with Makeup Forever's Face and Body foundation,  a volumising mascara, lightly bronzed cheeks and nude lips all from Dylan Bradshaw. She paid close attention to eyebrows to add definition to the face but kept in line with a soft look. 

            Myself: Bra - €50, highwaisted briefs, €27 - Both Panache. Kimono - Studio, €161

Rosanna wearing - a Simone Perele red body, €140 at Arnotts

*Seafolly sizes ranges from 6-18 which I didn't realise. Always good to know! :)
