Backstage at BNTM live

Today was the big day, the first day of Britain's Next Top Model live at the Excel. As you may know, I was asked to help style a fashion show with five other super bloggers - Jenny, Frankie, Natasha, Alize and Matthew. Again, huge thanks to the guys at Motorola for this exciting opportunity. So being the big day, I was a bag of nerves. Not only was I one half of the high-street styling duo, I also had to go on stage to talk through geek chic fashion. Thankfully, the hubbub backstage kept me occupied. It was so hectic: briefing hair and make up, making sure our models were looked after, dressing and styling them up. 


Matthew playing hide & seek!



Here is my gorgeous model Paige ready to rock and roll. Doesn't she look like the epitome of geek chic? 



Cardigan - River Island, blouse - Zara, skirt - Topshop, socks and satchel - Miss Selfridge and shoes - New Look


For my outfit, I wanted to take key Autumn/Winter trends and give them a geek chic twist. Although flat brogues are synonymous with geek chic, I went for these New Look heeled loafers to be different. The colour is absolutely delish and the platform keeps them on trend. The camel skirt from Topshop was absolutely irresistible, the a-line shape and pocket details won me over. I paired the camel skirt with a silky slate blouse from Zara, the big bow adds a girly and feminine touch to my geek chic outfit. I've layered a patterned knit cardigan from River Island over the blouse, patterned knit is typical geek chic and I just needed this cardi in the outfit. I also had a lovely leopard print satchel which can be seen in the pictures below. 


How amazing do the high-street, high end and vintage models look?! Totally working the geek chic look.
