Straight off the plane from New York Fashion Week, London fashion photographer Kyle Galvin arrived at the Dorchester Hotel to shoot Leonie Hanne founded of for her Marie Claire feature during London Fashion Week. With 2.1 million followers on Instagram and 5.4 million unique visitors on her Pinterest, Leonie is one of the biggest street style stars at fashion week. 

Shot in the Mayfair Suite at the Dorchester Hotel, Marie Claire Contributing Fashion Editor Sarah-Rose Harrison known for styling prime time celebrities styled Leonie in the season’s popular trend – feathers. After the shoot Launch Metrics; the leading brand performance cloud in fashion, luxury and Beauty and Lyst; the leading fashion search engine announced during fashion week Leonie showed a +177% search popularity in feathered dresses and +389% on oversized blazers 24 hours after being seen on Leonie. She was later named the number one trendsetter during the fall/winter 2020 fashion month. 

For makeup, Louise Hall prepped the skin using Milk Makeup skincare and then used Charlotte Tilbury and Ted Baker Cosmetics. The makeup style was kept very fresh and glowy with a shimmery eye to add a sparkle to the eyes. The hair was styled by Gordon Chapples using Oribe and Hot Tools and he created a relaxed low ponytail with a curl to add a soft glamour in harmony with the makeup look. 

Swaying between playful and opulent feathered styles including Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Manolo Blahnik,  16Arlington, Deborah Bryth and Brogger at Browns Fashion, Kyle shot Leonie in both a relaxed yet lively style on top of mantle pieces and fireplaces as well as lounging in lavish frocks across the Mayfair suite. Shot on a Canon 5d Mark IV with Canon glass and lit with profoto flashes, he kept the editorial very bright and clean.
