i'm going a bundle on the restricted grey hues and relentless rooftop landscapes; aesthetically speaking it reallyreally appeals to me, though i could be doing with a little less of the "hey check it out, i'm being held hostage!" hands-behind-back posing.
but this small draw back is very much redeemed by the great casting (Hanne Gaby Odiele) and the styling. Animal masks(!), multiple layered belts and the odd streamlined silhouette of a 1990s style dress. add a bit of "let's accessorise with bin bag hats and sparkly shoulders" spirit et fini!
i have never really understood why hanne never made it bigger. personally i really like her; she has such an incredible face which actually has a look rather similar to heidi mount, i think. and is often a great example of model style, and yet although she has walked many a show, they're rarely for the big guns of the design world.
