From the catwalk to the pages of a magazine...

OK, so this possibly isn't as glamorous as my title makes out to be, but it's probably as glamorous as things might get for me :PThe Stitches & Craft Show has been and gone in BrisVegas and Bec and I got our first glimpse of some Beckybean bags on the runway for the Wardrobe Refashion Fashion Show. Sure I'm a few weeks late with this post (it was nearly 3 weeks ago...). And being the consummate business professionals that we are (not!), we forgot our cameras to capture this moment in time... thank goodness for iphones! Actually I think we were too excited to get shopping that we didn't even think of it...oops. These pics aren't great as the phone has no zoom (grrr...) but you get the general idea. I can tell you, I'm sure I looked a right twat taking pictures of our bags with a camera phone :D People probably thought I was a relative or something of some of the models! But it was pretty cool to see some of them teamed up with some fabulous fashions.I umm'ed and aagh'ed about putting in these next pics...but I'm going to do it!
So this month's issue of Vogue Entertaining and Travel is out and Kym and I are in it (from our trip to Hamilton Island for the Vogue Produce Awards I mentioned previously), along with a few other chefs and partners.

I was really really REALLY hoping
they night airbrush me but no such luck. And it was a side on pic - aagh! That's Kym and I in the bottom righthand side of the page. Very paranoid about this angle of me since having Jett - I miss having definition between my face and my neck... Bec tried to make me feel better by saying she thinks it is the light and thinks Kym has a shadow there too but I think she may just be being the nice big sister and trying to make me feel better! I also think I have a mis-conception in my head of how I think I look and how I actually look and don't realise this until I see it on paper...hmm.

Anyhoo, it's out, so if you want to learn how to make Kym's 'Holy Luna Goat's Cheese with Danish Pastry, Fruit and Cumquat Puree', check it out :) Actually it was originally for a croissant dough I think, but they deemed the recipe a little 'tricky' for us mere house novices, so it was simplified!

Now I must finish writing my tales of high fashion and magazine spreads (he he he) and get back to my oh so glamorous life of unstacking the dishwasher, putting away Jett's toys, sweeping the floor and putting away the clean clothes. Sigh :(

How exciting to be in the pages of Vogue! You'll have to buy 10 copies.

Congratualtions! You high flying fashionista mumma you.
Yes, cleaning will bring you back down to earth, so I would suggest putting it off for as long as possible, or perhaps hiring a uni student to do it? :)

I was so excited when I saw your bag in the fashion parade at Stitches and Craft - felt like I knew someone famous :) And now that you're in Vogue!!! I kinda do :)

You won't believe this, but I actually had the latest copy of VE&T in my hands yesterday and put it down like a good girl (you have to kick the magazines out of the way when you enter Chez Fudge). Now I will have to brave the floods to pick it up again and buy it. Oh, and the bags look fab!

That is so cool, I agree about the shadow, you look great.

The bags looked great on the runway, I'm so bummed I missed the parade.

Helen said...

Sooo glad you decided to include the fab pic and story. You both look so glam!

Speaking of Glam so do your bags and purses - WOW! They did such a great job merchandising them with the outfits.

Cant' wait to see you both shine on telly soon! Oh did I let the cat out of the bag - oops - te he!

You look great in the photo, and how fancy to have it in a flashy magazine!

The bags looked amazing at the show too!

OH How Exciting!!!!!!!!!! You're so famous! :D

Your pic looks perfectly fine to me :)

I had a photoshoot for a local mag once and was almost sick with paranoia as to how the shot would turn out. I feared the worst as the photographer took it from on the floor looking up at me (hello nostrils and double chin!). When the mag came out I was SO relieved to see it wasn't nearly as bad as I'd feared. Then I showed my mum and she said "That's a terrible photo of you! What have they done to your face? It's all stretched like a horse!"

YUP, thanks Mum! Feel loads better now...
