The semi final! Wow hasn’t it come around quick? The Paul Edmonds London team are being represented by Paul, Alfie and Jennie on the island of Cape Verde for the last weeks of #BNTM series 11. If you don’t know by episode 9 that Paul Edmonds London is the official hair sponsor for Britain’s Next Top Model then where have you been?! Let’s catch up on what the team and the girls have been up to this week… a photoshoot by Matthew Williamson at Debenhams and video campaign with Boohoo!
Butterfly by Matthew Williamson at Debenhams
The girls started the week with some unexpected ‘model mail,’ a video, however their message wasn’t from a familiar face. Move over judges because Matthew Williamson has a special task for the girls! Matthew Williamson, British fashion designer and creator of Butterfly by Matthew Williamson at Debenhams wants the girls to shoot his latest swimwear collection! This was huge for the semi-finalists and immediate speculation hit the final 4 as they wondered where the campaign would be shot. The first step the girls had to over come was working out what a catamaran was and this proved quite the task!
All was reviled as judges Abbey and Nicky arrived glamorously on a speed boat to enlighten the girls and take them out to sea to solve the big catamaran mystery! The girls arrive to hair & makeup and the expert teams battled against the hot sun, waves and location to style the girls beautifully while capturing the Butterfly at Debenhams look.

How striking does Jennifer look in this shot? Her stunning face and body makes this image an unforgettable shot. Jennifer’s hair was styled with Shu Uemura Master Wax for shine and a workable hold. This allows Jennifer’s buzz cut to be re-worked without adding additional product. We added gold leaf to the girls styles to capture a summer glow and to make the girls swimwear pop with colour.
Tallulah initially found it hard to get into position and we don’t blame her! Looking glamorous on a catamaran out at sea in high heat must have been a challenge! Luckily professional model and head judge Abbey Clancy was on hand to show the girls how it’s done. For the remaining girls with long hair the brief was a high pony tail and Tallulah shows off hers extremely elegantly. Keep reading for this week’s ‘Get The Look’ and let Paul Edmonds show you how to get your very own high pony tail at home, it’s harder than you think!
Alannah’s body is to die for! The judges have previously described her as a Victoria Secret’s Angel and we can’t disagree with this shot! Although the brand did say they would struggle to place her with Debenhams as she is very top heavy but we love that and as the judges said so will many other designers. Paul, Alfie and Jennie styled Alannah’s extended locks in a high pony with placed gold leaf to ensure she looked a goddess out at sea.
Breathless is the word to describe Olivia in her shoot! Her face is absolutely stunning and she is totally bringing an element of sass to her campaign. Due to these beautiful shots, Olivia won picture of the week and we totally agree. We loved styling the girls with high pony tails and gold leaf, it would be a great festival look! Why not try it out yourself? Watch our ‘Get The Look‘ with Paul Edmonds as he shows you a step by step on Olivia.
