    Modern My Fair Lady



    I have always had a passion for musicals, and one of my all time favourites has to be My

    Fair Lady starring the incomparable Audrey Hepburn. No matter how hard you try, once

    you’ve seen it you will never forget the scene at the racetrack when a completely

    transformed Eliza Doolittle enters in that extravagant black and white gown, complete

    with giant hat. This stunning ballgown, by Sherri Hill, made me feel like Audrey for a

    moment, recreating that classic scene in a modern, yet timelessly elegant way. The two

    piece makes it a little different, with the bodice encased in beautiful black gems. While

    the skirt is made from layers upon layers of petticoats, to add a real princess feel.


    We shot these photos on the beautiful Brighton Bandstand, famed for it’s elegance and

    beauty, and I felt it was the perfect location to capture such a magnificent dress. It really

    is modern My Fair Lady all over! All I need now is a gigantic hat and I could be off to the

    races!
