Fashion Faves – Anabella Barber
You know me – okay, you don’t but pretend, yeah? – and my fondness for all things we can call “retro” so this dress immediately set off my Wow!-o-meter. Lovely 1960s feel to it with its straight lines accentuated by the straight, again very 1960s-style stance from Anabella; great blend of the old mod with more up-to-date make-up and hair styling. Beautiful control of foreground lighting by Jamie to cancel out the wonderful back light by nature. And there’s something about the location that appeals to me too; I think it’s the association I give barren, brown landscapes to old science fiction such as Blake’s 7 and Doctor Who. And you know – okay, you don’t but pretend, yeah? – how much I like old science fiction.
