Among other British celebrities, Imogen was photographed for Vogue UK’s June issue with the title “London Pride”.
STYLING the country’s best-loved names makes for pretty memorable fashion story, but Voguefashion editor Francesca Burns says there was one moment on the June issue’s London Pridephotoshoot that was truly unforgettable. A celebration of the nation’s most brilliant stars, the spread features young faces such as Pixie Geldof, Rafferty Law and Alexa Chung, as well as established national treasures, including Vivienne Westwood, Ian McKellen and David Walliams.
“One of the reasons I got into fashion was because of Vivienne Westwood – I was utterly obsessed with her as a teenager, so I was so nervous to be working with her,” Burns told us. “But she was incredibly down to earth and happy to strip down to her fantastic tartan knickers in the middle of the Wallace Collection.”
Entitled London Pride, the shoot covers a wide range of areas – from music, with The xx and the Artic Monkeys’ Alex Turner; to acting, including Imogen Poots and Tom Hardy; to models such as Lara Stone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley; to young talent, featuringJeremy Irvine and Douglas Booth; to sporting stars such as Olympic swimmer Tom Daley and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith. Each shot captures each of its subjects in a way that reveals an insight into his or her personality – as seen in the picture of girlfriend and boyfriendGeorgia May Jagger and Josh McLellan, who are caught in a romantic kiss.
