Do you think your style is cool enough to pass muster at the TOPSHOP Mirror Mirror challenge? Forget taking your driving test, the first day at a new job and asking out long cherished crushes, there’s a new self-confidence test in town. Yep if you’ve got guts, chutzpah and pizzazz galore, then you should be an ideal candidate for this TOPSHOP and SHOWstudio joint project – Mirror Mirror. The idea is very simple, all you have to do is shimmy down to TOPSHOP’s flagship store in Oxford Circus and make your way to the interactive mirror on the ground floor, stand in front and have your look appraised by one of over 30 top fashion creatives (!)
Yes, you read that part right. During each hour long posing session this week, a fashion industry grand fromage – including Lady Gaga's stylist Nicola Formichetti, Edward Enninful of i-D and US Vogue, make-up artist Hannah Murray, fashion's favourite illustrator Julie Verhoeven AND Grazia’s own Fashion Editor at Large, Melanie Rickey, and Grazia Daily editor Angela Buttolph will be offering their frankest and most discerning style advice.
Angela (who will be on today between 1 and 2) said – “I for one am really looking forward to it. Normally you’d get thrown out of department stores for standing around fitting rooms commenting on everyone’s outfits so for me, it’s a dream come true!”
It’s been organised to celebrate the launch of their makeup range (YAY!) and you’ll be able to see a screen shot of each of the participants HERE along with the comments submitted by each expert. Only question remains is: Are you brave enough?
