This weekend saw the second annual instalment of the Vogue Festival at the new and improved venue of the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall next to London’s Royal Festival Hall. Two days packed full of guest speakers such as Victoria Beckham, Donatella Versace, Alber Elbaz, Michael Kors, Natalie Massenet, Mario Testino, Sam was asked to be part of a panel of speakers interviewed by Vogue’s editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman, for one of the most popular talks, “Behind the Scenes of a Vogue Cover Shoot”. Also taking part in the panel was Vogue’s Fashion Director, Lucinda Chambers, make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury and model of the moment, Cara Delevingne, all of whom worked together on the now iconic Cara cover for this year’s March issue, and all of whom were shot by photographer David Bailey backstage for the magazine’s archive. Speaking of the day, Sam said, “it was a little daunting to be on stage speaking at the QE Hall, but Alexandra made us all feel comfortable and Lucinda’s stories had us in hysterics. Cara was sweet and chatty and Charlotte and I rambled on like only hair and makeup can. When it was all over, we said: ‘Oh was that it? When can we do it again?’. Same time again next year?
