To travel and get photographed like a supermodel for two weeks, all you have to do is spend £170,100 (about $216,830/€192,715) per couple. For their latest venture, VeryFirstTo and luxury travel company Hurlingham Travel partnered with Hackney Walk to offer well-heeled jet-setters the opportunity to get photographed like supermodels by top fashion photographer Perou in famous fashion shoot locations in the world.
Perou is well-known around the fashion and show biz worlds, celebrities he photographed over the years include Naomi Campbell, David Gandy, Vivienne Westwood, President Clinton, David Beckham and Justin Timberlake. His TV exploits include taking the lead in Channel 4’s Dirty Sexy Things and being a judge and mentor on the US and UK versions of Make Me A Supermodel. This same Perou will be your personal photographer during the trip that starts in London and ends in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Stylist to the stars Desiree Lederer is another one of top talents VeryFirstTo and Hurlingham Travel roped in for the project. Her client includes everyone from Victoria Beckham to Rihanna. Lederer plans to style budding models on tour with beauty products from luxury brands Joseph; Anya Hindmarch; Nicole Farhi; Pringle Of Scotland; Gieves & Hawkes; and Zadig & Voltaire. And she plans to purchase these top-lines from London’s first fashion outlet district Aquascutum and from MATCHESFASHION.COM.
The two-week trip starts in London with a photo shoot on the mews made famous by Kate Moss and Burberry ad campaign. A short hop to Paris on first class Eurostar takes you to the site for Saint Laurent’s iconic Le Smoking ad in 1975 – the Rue Aubriot. In no time you’ll be on a Gondola in Venice to take your photos in places Karl Lagerfeld, Diesel and Dolce & Gabbana shot their iconic ad campaigns.
Next up is Manhattan, a place the fashion world is familiar with. Perou says of the location, “Manhattan has been the site for many iconic photos including the 1990 Vogue image of the world’s supermodels including Cindy, Naomi, Linda, and Christy.” The tour ends in beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands, their claim to fame in fashion world arrived courtesy of Eternity for Calvin Klein ad campaign featuring Christy Turlington.
To do makeup, and make you look like a supermodel they hired renowned makeup artist Alice Theobald – who has worked with bold names like Lindsay Lohan and Idris Elba.
