Throwback to me in a Halloween party costume a hundred years ago

Throwback to me in a Halloween party costume a hundred years ago. Maybe I was around age 26.....
.
Think the dress code may have been tarts and vicars! 
I'm obviously not the vicar.

Tbt 
To outside the Jean Machine on London's Kings road circa 1970.
.
Note the 70s fashions of: 
Big collar
Patchwork denim shirt
Denim on denim
Cowboy belt
Chunky silver bracelet
Bellbottom jeans
Platform boots .
And... what was I thinking about? ( my facial expression is a picture in itself)! Or ...
What was I waiting for? 
Think I was working there as my out of school Saturday job at the time.
Your thoughts? .

#Tbt Me age 15 and age 28

Me age 15 and age 28.

These photos are pre-social media when there were no filters on photos and no pressures to look a certain way. .
Of course there were those who were skinny too and those who were fat but no-one judged or had anywhere to post photos that weren't real. The only place to post a photo was in a personal photo album which stayed in your living room. .

No-one exercised, worked out or went to gyms in the same 'addicted to fitness' way so our bodies were a different shape and less toned than gym bodies of nowadays. .
Maybe we did ballet or horse riding or swam or did some form of sport at school and beyond but only for our personal enjoyment. Not with the same end goals to have the perfect Instagram body. .
We didn't compare or judge. 
No pressures to look a certain way.
We were happier and more confident in our body image then. 
Free to be who we were. .

As it’s Wimbledon fortnight I thought I’d continue posting some more images of past Wimbledon champions styled by me

As it's Wimbledon fortnight I thought I'd continue posting some more images of past Wimbledon champions styled by me.

Anna Kournikova aged 18, styled by me in Berlin. She'd refused to participate in my photoshoot when requested in advance from London. 
However when she saw Polaroids of other players from my day's photoshoot she loved their photos, and unexpectedly turned up at the end of the shoot with most of her Russian family members. There were a lot of them.

She loved the Escada dress I chose for her to wear and the Bvlgari diamonds. 
As she had come straight from the Berlin open tennis tournament all she had with her was her sports bra and no other suitable bra to wear with the dress and she was very keen on having lots of cleavage showing.

The only bra I had with me was a "Wonderbra' ( if you remember the Eva Herzigova "Hello Boys" wonderbra ad ) plunge bra of my own in my suitcase which I of course lent her. 
She still wanted more cleavage, so I obliged using contour shading.

She was to be on a magazine cover as the editor loved the photo of her so much. However her L.A. agents were less than pleased when they saw the photos as no one knew that she was about to be endorse and be advertising a sports bra which apparently made her cleavage innapropriate at that time.  Who was to know this?! So we were not allowed to use the full length photo, hence the cropped head shot which ended up as the magazine cover photo. The full length photo was never used.

When I was styling celebrities, I styled Serena Williams when she was only 17

When I was styling celebrities, I styled Serena Williams when she was only 17.

I styled Serena in Berlin, Germany during the women's WTA tour.  She is wearing an Escada dress and BVlgari diamonds worth around £60,000. We had a security guard to look after us and the diamonds. .
