Being Lady Penelope – Rolls Royce Weekend
Being Lady Penelope – Rolls Royce Weekend
Where? Rushton Hall, Northamptonshire, UK
When? Sept 2017
Why? I was very lucky to be invited up to Ruston Hall for the weekend in order to visit the Burghley Horse Trials. As it’s such an exclusive event it would be rude not to arrive in style, so Rolls Royce offered to loan me one of their top of the range Wraith cars for a shoot for the weekend.
Once I found out a ‘Roller’ was on the cards, I nipped out and got some suitably fabulous winter party pieces to match the car for a photoshoot. I’m a huge fan of the Thunderbirds and I’ve always loved lady Penelope, so this was my chance to channel her ladylike style in a shoot showcasing some of brand new Australian brand Bronx and Banco’s new Autumn Winter pieces.
