  • LAURA MARANO GOES GAGA FOR FASHION! On the anniversary of Lady Gaga’s first single, the Disney Channel star celebrates six iconic song writers through fashion Disney Channel starlet Laura Marano dazzles in a fashion shoot honouring half a decade of Lady Gaga, who released her first ever single, Just Dance, five years ago today (April 8th 2008). The shoot takes its fashion inspiration from iconic songwriters of the century – Lady Gaga, Jessie J, Elton John, Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson – in a nod to the actress’s song writing character Ally, in the hit Disney Channel series Austin & Ally. The stylistic shots were created by a high profile team of fashion gurus – renowned photographer David Oldham and Anne-Marie Curtis, Elle magazine’s Fashion Director and stylist to stars like Cheryl Cole, Kristen Stewart and Alexa Chung, along with A-list glam team Maxine Leonard and Raphael Salley on hair and makeup. Just as Marano’s character becomes an overnight sensation, life imitated art for Laura Marano, who has been watched in Austin & Ally by over 26 million people around the world, cementing her place as a one of the most recognisable faces amongst a generation of tweens, and their families, across the globe. Laura Marano said: “To celebrate some of the world’s most iconic songwriters, famed for their unique style almost as much as their music has been just amazing and the fact that it has been in London, one of the world’s fashion capitals, is a dream come true. I have had my eye on European fashion for a while and London has a style unlike anywhere I’ve been before.” Anne-Marie Curtis, said: “Laura was every inch the style icon at the shoot. She totally owned each look and is a stylist’s dream to dress. Even more impressively, she has her own independent sense of style and so I look forward to seeing how her fashion identity evolves this year.” To create the dramatic Gaga-inspired shot, a floor length black Karl Lagerfield dress was teamed with a striking head piece and Gaga’s trademark studded platforms, before celebrity makeup artist Maxine Leonard scattered the star’s lips with hot pink glitter for a youthful twist. In a modern take on Elton’s vibrant bespeckled image, Marano donned a multicoloured faux fur coat and contemporary hexagonal mock glasses before also celebrating British songstress Jessie J with leggings, a jewel encrusted leotard and oversized jewellery. Austin & Ally is a live-action comedy series filled with tales of singing, song writing and the adventures of trying to achieve one’s dreams and follows the unique relationship between polar opposites – the fun loving Austin, an extroverted musician/singer, and Ally, a brilliant but shy songwriter. Their lives take an unexpected turn for the better when Austin becomes an overnight musical sensation after secretly borrowing and recording one of Ally’s songs before posting it online.

The shoot takes its fashion inspiration from iconic songwriters of the century – Lady Gaga, Jessie J, Elton John, Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson – in a nod to the actress’s song writing character Ally, in the hit Disney Channel series Austin & Ally. The stylistic shots were created by a high profile team of fashion gurus – renowned photographer David Oldham and Anne-Marie Curtis, Elle magazine’s Fashion Director and stylist to stars like Cheryl Cole, Kristen Stewart and Alexa Chung, along with A-list glam team Maxine Leonard and Raphael Salley on hair and makeup. Just as Marano’s character becomes an overnight sensation, life imitated art for Laura Marano, who has been watched in Austin & Ally by over 26 million people around the world, cementing her place as a one of the most recognisable faces amongst a generation of tweens, and their families, across the globe. Laura Marano said: “To celebrate some of the world’s most iconic songwriters, famed for their unique style almost as much as their music has been just amazing and the fact that it has been in London, one of the world’s fashion capitals, is a dream come true. I have had my eye on European fashion for a while and London has a style unlike anywhere I’ve been before.” Anne-Marie Curtis, said: “Laura was every inch the style icon at the shoot. She totally owned each look and is a stylist’s dream to dress. Even more impressively, she has her own independent sense of style and so I look forward to seeing how her fashion identity evolves this year.” To create the dramatic Gaga-inspired shot, a floor length black Karl Lagerfield dress was teamed with a striking head piece and Gaga’s trademark studded platforms, before celebrity makeup artist Maxine Leonard scattered the star’s lips with hot pink glitter for a youthful twist. In a modern take on Elton’s vibrant bespeckled image, Marano donned a multicoloured faux fur coat and contemporary hexagonal mock glasses before also celebrating British songstress Jessie J with leggings, a jewel encrusted leotard and oversized jewellery. Austin & Ally is a live-action comedy series filled with tales of singing, song writing and the adventures of trying to achieve one’s dreams and follows the unique relationship between polar opposites – the fun loving Austin, an extroverted musician/singer, and Ally, a brilliant but shy songwriter. Their lives take an unexpected turn for the better when Austin becomes an overnight musical sensation after secretly borrowing and recording one of Ally’s songs before posting it online.

squirrel photographer

The camouflage case on this camera didn't deceive this inquisitive ground squirrel as it showed off its photography skills by staring down the lens. This squirrel was keen to show off its photography skills when it sprinted towards to the camera that was left on the ground...It approached the camera and played with it for two minutes, standing on its back legs as looks down the viewfinder. The squirrel was minding its own business before spotting the camera in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in Botswana.
