Jerry Hall’s first Vogue cover in 1975 (styled by Grace Coddington) was photographed by Norman Parkinson in Montego Bay. I’m quite old-school when it comes to fashion photography – as you can see by my ‘Fab Photos’ board on Pinterest – and this happens to be one of my favourite pictures, ever. So. I’m, er, made-up that Charlotte Tilbury has collaborated with Norman Parkinson’s grandson Jake (who runs the late photographer’s archive) to use a small selection of iconic, summer images on her beauty products. How lovely.

I found a great FT interview with Jerry Hall and Grace Coddington, talking about working with Parks, HERE. ‘I loved him’ says Hall, ‘He was an old-style gentleman photographer, very polite, very thoughtful – but he wanted the picture. He had a sense of “big” – you know, big spaces – he would choose panoramic views and had a great sense of movement across the page. He always enjoyed you moving, doing some kind of a shape, which I really enjoyed, too.’
