First shot well underway!

The first shot of Nick Knight's shoot with Natalia V for British Vogue is now underway - with Natalia sporting a somewhat sensational Prada creation of ombre chiffon and crystal beading, specially designed for the shoot. Other designers who have hand-fashioned exquisite gowns for this 'Fairytale' shoot are Dolce e Gabbana, Chanel, Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane, Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga and Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. Each and every one of these custom-crafted couture pieces will be auctioned in March in aid of Natalia's charity, the Naked Heart Foundation. The fairytale theme seems to have taken something of a Tibetan twist at the hands of Lucinda Chambers - augmented by Val Garland's tribal make-up, Sam McKnight's sensational hairpieces and a frosted birch backdrop created by Michael Howells. More from the set soon!
