AMY WILLERTON, I’M A CELEBRITY, GET ME OUT OF HERE

Amy_Willerton_Calendar

As you may or may not be aware, Amy Willerton is more than just a model to us, she’s part of our UK Model Folios family. We are so proud of how she has conducted herself in the jungle thus far, despite being a victim of some clear mistreatment by other camp Members.

We met Amy through sponsoring the Miss London beauty pageant (regional heat for Miss England and Miss World). We spotted from the offset she had that certain something; the ‘X-Factor’ if you will, and we were right.

Travelling to Thailand with Amy after she won a photoshoot with us and Alan Strutt to shoot there was a real highlight. It was on those stunning beaches we shot her debut calendar and spent time really getting to know the real Amy.

Here’s some of our highlights! #TeamAmy x

Behind-the-Scenes At Miss England 2011, Birmingham NEC

Miss_England_2011_Finalists2

The Miss England 2011 finals are almost here, just one day away. Today sixty stunning finalists gathered at the Birmingham NEC to rehearse for what is the biggest event in the pageant world and UK Model Folios were there to capture it all exclusively to share with you.

This year UK Model Folios have been offered the opportunity to offer their services independently at the Miss England finals capturing those ‘what really goes on behind-the-scenes?’ shots and professional portraits of the ladies in That infamous evening gown. We advance our thanks to our amazing photographers Roy Strutt, Costas Constantinou and Antony Michael for their photography skills and support of UK Model Folios, and of course this event.

Today we wanted to share with you a quick glimpse of what happened at the rehearsals for the Eco Round- the opportunity for finalists to showcase their bespoke creations from recyclable materials. The rehearsals give them an opportunity to learn choreography and strut their stuff on the catwalk to a panel of highly credible judges who tomorrow evening will have the extremely difficult task of choosing the lady who will represent England for the year ahead and at Miss World 2011, which even more exciting for us Brits will be held in London.

Check out just a few of our shots below snapped by the fabulous photographer Roy Strutt and come back tomorrow for the result and first-hand shots of what happened at Miss England 2011!

…Press Go Mad for UK Model Folios and Miss England Press Call

Miss_England_Beachwear_Finalists

To add to yesterday’s madness in one of our London studios, OK! magazine and The Metro, as well as local press from across the country have joined the fandango and even, in OK! magazine’s case started their own online voting poll for who has the best beachwear body out of the Miss England top ten beach wear finalists…

Miss England Beachwear Finalists Shoot

Today has been a very hectic day filled with hair, make-up, bikinis, lots of press and ten very hot Miss England beachwear finalists.

Out of 61 of the pageants finalists, ten ladies were selected by three sets of judges- Miss England, Sandstorm Boutique and Alan Strutt with UK Model Folios. It was a very tough decision to make because all of the finalists are absolutely drop dead amazing, but when the elated final ten turned up in our London studio today to shot by Alan they certainly proved they deserved to be picked.

The final ten ladies consisted of:

Miss Bath

Miss Every Model

Miss Flyde Coast

Miss Harrogate

Miss Lipsy

Miss Liverpool

Miss London

Miss Manchester

Miss Newcastle

Miss York

Whilst the ten ladies had their make-up done by top promotions agency, Front UK and hair styled by Art Directors from Toni & Guy Mayfair, Fay L. Bacon worked with Sandstorm boutique in selecting individual looks for each finalist, ‘I wanted to create something fresh and colourful to represent summer in England but also show off all of the finalists amazing curves and toned physiques. Sandstorm provided us with the most fabulous pieces to choose from including one pieces, bikinis and cutout swimsuits. However, I decided to put each of the girls in a bikini which best suited their shape and skin tone, and the pictures speak volumes for how amazing each of them looked. Getting in to a bikini is daunting for any woman, regardless of how confident body-wise you are, but these ladies shone and strutted their stuff like pros for the camera despite for some of them it being their first time.’

At 2pm after each finalist had been photographed, fifteen different press photographers arrived from national tabloids such as The Daily Star, The Sun and The Evening Standard. As the girls posed alongside eachother for the group shots, Miss London 2011 Rissikat Bade was asked for additional interviews and pictures to feature in the London Metro and others alike. Less than a few hours later and the stories have already been published, check out this feature in The Sun…

All of the girls left the London studio by 4pm after doing an interview for a selection of online lads mags that will feature today’s images very soon and give each finalist their own individual profile.

The Beach Body Award winner will be announced on the evening of the Miss England final on July 19th at the Birmingham NEC.

Who do you think should win?

 

 

England is cold but Miss England is scorching hot!

The biggest national beauty pageant, Miss England is fast-approaching and it’s sixty finalists are busy prepping, exercising, and detoxing every nook and cranny to ensure they bag that much coveted crown. We just wanted to post these amazing shots snapped by Alan Strutt for UK Model Folios of the current Miss England, Jessica Linley to show this years ladies how high the standards are for that extra incentive to be fabulous.

Jessica and the Miss England team were so overwhelmed by these shots they have already been used in several publications and will be on the front cover of this year’s Miss England programme.

Miss England 2011 finalists- look and learn- Jessica is a hard act to follow!

Alan Strutt- They All Want A Piece of Him and We Know Why!

 

 

Between shooting Coleen Rooney and Patsy Palmer for two separate issues of Hello in the last month, Alan has also been busy working with UK Model Folios shooting several campaigns with Miss London 2011 Rissikat Bade for diamond and watch specialist Mark J Walsh, Sytner MINI Canary Wharf and designer Karen Karmody. To add to this he also shot the front cover and inside spread of Miss and Mr Every Model, for the industry’s leading fashion and commercial model magazine, Every Model summer issue, released today!

With the calendar season fast approaching, Alan has a string of celebrity calendars lined-up to shoot which comes as no surprise after the stunning work he shot last year including another beautiful calendar for iconic model Kelly Brook and the 50’s pin-up inspired glamour shoot for Peta Todd. Both calendars were a huge success and went alongside the 12 other titles Alan shot all of which can be found at celebritycalendars.co.uk. As an extra treat for you all, UK Model Folios are teaming back-up with Alan in September to shoot calendars and portfolios in Thailand’s Koh Samui! For more information on this trip or for further information on Alan please contact us.

We’ll leave you now with a few snapshots of Alan’s most recent work for UK Model Folios and some inspirations for your 2012 calendars…
