Just Another MAXIM Monday…

Rae_Dos_Remedios_MAXIM

Huge congratulations to Rae Dos Remedios for her first MAXIM feature shot by Alan Strutt for UK Model Folios. We discovered Rae in 2011 after she placed in the top ten of Miss London, the regional beauty pageant with the ultimate prize of competing in the final of Miss England and if successful there, Miss World.

Above is our personal favourite from the shoot- it captures Rae’s natural beauty and sensuality as she poses cooly in a Morticia Ivory bra and knicker set provided by, ByCaprice Lingerie, available to purchase here

MAXIM UK COLLABORATION

We are extremely excited about our recent collaboration with MAXIM UK. The huge brand with a subscription base of 750,00 in the UK alone have chosen UK Model Folios to shoot their main page articles after working with them on Miss England’s Best Beach Body. The four lucky newcomer models Rissikat Bade, Jessica Linley, Naomi Young and Hollie Dowding were co-selected by the MAXIM Editor and UK Model Folios to be the first in showcasing our amazing photographic opportunity and will follow the likes of Megan Fox, Nicole Scherzinger and Eva Mendesto who have also appeared on MAXIM.

MAXIM UK were ecstatic when Alan Strutt agreed to shoot the models for UK Model Folios and as expected he did not disappoint. A great friend of UKMF, Miss London 2011 Rissikat said about her MAXIM shoot, ‘I was so excited when I was told I was one of the four lucky ladies to shoot with Alan Strutt for MAXIM. The atmosphere in UKModelFolios studio was as always very relaxing and happy. It was amazing to work with Alan again, as well as shooting with the beautiful pageant girls, Naomi Young and Jessica Linley. The Harlett lingerie, which was provided for the shoot, was stunning and I just can’t wait to see the results.’

A special thanks goes to Harlette Lingerie, another exciting collaboration of ours- we have recently linked up with Harlette to shoot the stunning TV personality and model Melissa Reeves 2012 calendar wearing the exquisite Harlette garments. We were also ecstatic when they agreed to lend their sought-after and very luxurious pieces for the MAXIM shoot and as expected, the models were blown away by the elegant yet tres sexy lingerie- even the Maxim Editor himself commented on the one-off Harlette peacock lingerie set saying, ‘hot knickers, very hot!’

Another special mention and appreciation goes to the fabulous Sandstorm Boutique– we completely heart their fabulous swimwear and after using many of their super-hot pieces in Thailand just had to use them for MAXIM too.

The articles will be published on various occasions over the few months starting with stunning model, Hollie Dowding. Keep watching to read and see our work in action!

Eco Friendly on Another Level

Last night UK Model Folios attended the first evening of the Miss England 2011 finals at the Birmingham NEC and were in awe of the 61 eco-friendly creations created and warn by the stunning finalists. The pieces were undoubtedly amazing and presented the judges, which included celebrity photographer Alan Strutt, Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Richard Farley and Miss World with an exceptionally hard decision of selecting a final five, and then a winner. The winner received £500 and a fast-track through the competition in to the final 15 contestants, one of whom tonight will be crowned Miss England 2011.

After the outfits paraded the catwalk, including floor length gowns created solely from magazines and newspapers, a skirt and boob tube with matching cape soldered with record vinyls, a dress and hat of playing cards, and a prom-style tutu dress created from an umbrella, the judges decision was so hard that they had to choose a final twelve as oppose to a final five.

After the top eco-finalists, including Miss London Rissikat Bade strutted their stuff on the catwalk one more time, the decision was made and Miss Liverpool Sarah Farley was chosen as a deserved winner. Patriotic Sarah’s outfit, constructed from Liverpool newspaper Echo, was designed with her city in mind and whom she represents in the Miss England contest. Sarah thanked Liverpool for Its support and said her outfit represents her love and respect for her hometown. For us, the audience, we watched in awe at her amazing creation and effort that went in to producing this incredible ensemble of a Hawaiian-hula style outfit, and notably her enviable figure that found her in the top ten of the Miss England Best Beach Body competition.

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!
