Julien Macdonald in the search for another top model
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 28 JUN 2011 17:32 DESIGNERS AT DEBENHAMSCOMMENTS
Jessica from our Stockport store headed along to the launch of BINTM to report back on what to expect from the latest series, hitting your screens on Monday 4 July at 9pm on Sky Living…
Returning this summer is series 7 of Britain’s Next Top Model. Notorious for its famous judges and epic photo shoots, the show is back this time even bigger and better. Taking over Ireland as well, the show has now become Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model (BINTM) in their search to find the next supermodel.
All you hardcore BINTM fans out there will be pleased to see the return of the judges, Elle Macpherson, Grace Woodward, Charlie Speed and, our favourite, Julien Macdonald who are back again to critique and advise the girls. As one of our fabulous Debenhams designers, Julien is back funnier than ever and as part of the new show he’s out searching the streets of the British Isles looking for would-be-models.
With prizes like these the competition will be fierce;
- A contract with Models One
- Company magazine 6 page spread and cover
- Luxury holiday for 2 courtesy of BA
- New Peugeot
- Cosmetics campaign
- £50,000 high street fashion campaign
We were there at the launch event to hear from the judge’s exactly what they are after. This year they want a girl who’s more than just a face and body; they want a girls who’s creative, intelligent and most importantly has a personality because in the modern fashion industry girls are required to be much more than just a silent beauty.
We were also lucky enough to get a sneak peak of the first episode and are pleased to report that the show is as fabulous as ever. The judges are on-form with their honest comments and the girls are back with their bold attitudes.
We’re definitely looking forward to the girls’ tantrums, the creative photo shoots and checking out the judges’ fashion choices. Oh yes, Elle, Grace, Charlie and Julien we’ve got our eyes on you too!
Judge Julien Macdonald is a distinctive designer and always creates collections that are glamorous and different. Julien says “I love bright uplifting colours that make you stand out from the crowd” and this red studded shoulder dress from Star by Julien Macdonald definitely does that.
Julien’s style signature almost always includes animal print, he says “animal print is also a must-have and adds a sexy edge to any style” so we paired this dress with the brown ‘Layla’ bag to complete the look.
