HAVE YOU MANAGED TO KEEP WORK AND HOME SEPARATE? It's always been cool being Welsh, even cooler if you speak it! But yeah, I get what you mean - we do seem to be trending at the moment. I still live in Anglesey and with it being a small island, it’s pretty hard not being recognised but I really enjoy the attention and am having fun with it. I have always loved travelling so getting in my car and independently whizzing around the country is a real buzz. I think I know the cows you speak of and the burial chamber, It's where I hung out growing up… FINALLY, I THINK THIS SHOOT IS SOMETHING ELSE! I'VE WANTED TO PLAY WITH THE "CLASSIER" SIDE OF THINGS FOR A LONG TIME BUT IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT. I HAVE TO SAY, YOU NAILED IT TO THE POST... DID IT COME EASY? DID YOU HAVE TO APPROACH IT DIFFERENTLY - OR (DAMN YOU TO HELL AND BACK) WAS IT JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE? Thanks! This shoot really was another level. Scott Cole told me the brief was classy and suggested a Marilyn Monroe-

esque style. I absolutely loved the idea and ventured that we up the sexy stakes by making the dress latex. Having worked with an amazing designer on my last Steampunk shoot (ASD Latex), I knew that we would be able to pull this off, so the late night facebook ramblings began! After a week of honing and measuring, we had the prototype: The classic Marilyn dress - in latex! Then, I began to study Marilyn's trademark poses and worked on incorporating it with my own style of lace and pearls to create something fresh and unseen before in the industry. Scott pulled his dream team together - which consisted of hair maverick Nathan Pithers and the lovely Victoria Fox for the unique 50's make-up, then the shoot was set up with new backgrounds brought in just for this and lights reminiscent of some cool old B movie which made the whole shoot feel like it was in the 50's. Brilliant! So I would like to say it was just another day at the office and come across all cool, but it wasn’t. It took a lot of the right things coming together at the right time, a brilliant team and

of course my amazing hotness to make it peak at boiling point! After the shoot it felt different than usual - like we had created something truly amazing - as you so elegantly put it - we nailed it to the post! I SAID ‘FINALLY’, BUT I LIED. OUT OF INTEREST AND BEING AS IT'S OUR TWENTIETH BIRTHDAY ISSUE, I'M GOING TO ASK THE MOST STUPID QUESTION IN THE WORLD. ANY IDEA WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN DOING IN MAY 1994? Hmm. May 1994 let me think… I was trying to match the colour of my outfits to my shoes whilst trying to avoid the cow shit on my way to the burial chamber to play. Let me finish by wishing Skin Deep a very happy birthday! 20 years! That is some achievement and here's to the next! By the way, just to turn the interview on its head Mr Smith, what were you doing in May 1994? UM, I BELIEVE I WAS JUST LEAVING A CLUB CALLED THE LOST HORIZON IN SYRACUSE, NEW YORK AFTER BEING SNOWED IN FOR FOUR MONTHS BUT HONESTLY, THAT’S A REALLY LONG STORY…
