give it 2 me - madonna
☆ Saturday: In lieu of us being in Hawaii, design a look for your gal on a gorgeous beach shoot perfect for the Maui sands, and the VS Swim catalogue.
Explanation; I chose this outfit because it had colour for the top, some cute trunks on the bottom, a crotchet vest thing, and flip flops, there's a mixture of textures aswell as prints, it also has a free beach attitude on it, expressing the beauty and the relaxation and simplicity of the outfit. There's a black lower piece, but I didn't want to clutter up the set, so if she were to take the shorts off, voila, black bikini bottoms.
"What did I get myself into", I say, putting my face into my palms.
"Oh don't be a drama queen, you'll do great", James says, beginning to rub my back.
"You don't get it, those girls are really good, I mean, they're all really pretty, heck, they rock those bikini's better than I do, I was made for the lingerie", I moan, grabbing a bottle of Fiji Water and drinking it, frowning.
"Listen to me, you'll rock it, okay?", he says, staring right at my eyes. I feel butterflies fluttering like wild inside. The thought of the VS SWIM campaign made me really happy, at the same time I was criticized in the lingerie one because I looked like 'Sid the Sloth', well I could sue, after all, just because I didn't turn out like mom, doesn't make me any less of a supermodel than her.
"Fine", I say, smirking.
"That's my girl", he says, smiling, giving me a pat on the back as he teeters off as the make up artist arrives.
"Hi, I'm Hannah and I'll be doing your make up today", she introduces and instantly begin, the hair stylist, Jermaine starts to do my hair and a nail manicurist Paula begins to file my nails down.
After a speedy 30 minutes, I browse the rack of swimwear in my Very Sexy Kimono, courtesy of the brand with my initials on the belt.
"Hello, your Natasia right?", says a blonde, not just any blonde, Achilles.
"Yeah, and your Achilles", I say, acknowledging her name, for her satisfaction of course.
"Let me give you a little tip, just because your mom was a supermodel", she begins.
"Achilles your up next!", yells a man and Achilles smirks.
"Doesn't mean you will be, got that? Face it, you're just a nobody", she says, spraying me with some VS perfume and spreading it around by blowing a kiss.
"Watch and learn!", she yells as she flicks off her robe and heads off to shoot.
"That peasant", I say under my breath, glaring as I watch her pop her booty in the water, seducing Russell's camera. I growl and drink some more Fiji Water.
"Hey I'm back", says James, with pizza for after the shoot, he glances at Achilles, "I'm guessing you two are very close", he says sarcastically.
"Totally", I say, rolling my eyes.
"Don't worry about it", he reassures me, giving me a kiss on the neck.
"NATASIA, YOU'RE NEXT!", yells a man as I smirk, voila, showtime. I toss my robe to James and strut onto the set, aka the beach.
"Hello darling, your name is Natasia correct? I remember you from the show", says Russell, smiling.
"Correct", I say, smiling back in my outfit.
"Let's get right to it", he says, going behind the camera as I shake myself and divert my attention to the camera.
I begin to pose, popping my butt out a little on the side as I bite my finger with my hand over my head, toussling my hair. I play around with a hat I'm given next, pouting with my eyes close, I giggle as Russell encourages me I'm doing great. I playfully bounce around on the sand and into the water, having fun, which in the back of my my head said that was a seller. I frolic around, whipping my hair as I do pose after pose, outfit after outfit.
"That's a wrap love!", says Russell as he smiles. I smile, clapping my hands happily as I walk back into the tent.
"You did great by the way love", he says, looking at his Macbook and smiling.
"Thank you!", I say, buzzing happily as James instantly hugs the hell out of me and showers me with kisses.
"You killed it", he smiles, his eyes twinkling even though the tent was dim.
"You think?", I say, smiling.
"I don't think, I now", He says.
