An image speaks a thousand words…and 200 hours of painstaking detail.
CJ Hendry is a photo realist artist who spends up to 200 hours enlarging and recording every shadow, every light, every detail in nothing but fine black pens.

35. INTRODUCING † DANIELLA DRAPER †
Daniella is 25. She is wearing the MAN REPELLER jumpsuit in navy with shoes from Isabel Marant, hat from Maison Michel and jacket by Nina Kaufmann. All jewellery is her own designs.
Daniella is a favourite jewellery designer of ours. All of her jewellery is solid silver and hand-made by herself at her studio in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. Her pieces make amazing presents, so if you are ever stuck, this is your girl. Check out her personalised signature bangle and bar necklace that can be stamped with your name. Yep, you are welcome – I think that made your life a bit easier - www.danielladraper.com
Daniella oozes optimism and when she isn’t designing she comes down to London to hang out at her favourite – Chelsea Arts Club and to pay a ritual visit to her castor in Hatton Garden; ‘Just Casting‘ - who is also the castor to the Queen, no less.
You can also find Daniella sailing in the ‘Coupe des Dames’ race in St Tropez together with her super stylish mother and sister. To relax she chills in The Bar Sube that overlooks the Marina with a G&T in hand.
We shot her in Saint Tropez. She is an iPhone girl.
34. INTRODUCING † LAUREN REGAN †
Lauren is 24. She is wearing the MAN REPELLER jumpsuit in white with shoes from Topshop, sunglasses by Ray Ban and her bag is from a shop in Tallinn, Estonia. Her favourite bat necklace is by Dodo Pomelato, her ‘LAUREN’ bracelet is by Di Grisogono and her watch and other bracelet are Cartier.
Lauren is a blogger – www.batsbazaar.com and is also in the founder of ‘The Beauty Book’ – a phone app for beauty spots around town launching in October 2013. Using your location it will find the nearest nail salon or massage parlour and you’re good to go – genius!
She is a health and beauty buff and would seriously recommend ‘Providores Tapas Rooms’ on Marylebone High Street for a perfectly healthy, but hearty breakfast that she washes down with a spirulina smoothie and a black coffee. On the beauty front, if you’re looking go get some fantastic highlights done, here is where to go:
For Brunettes - Hannah at ‘Real Hair’ on Cale Street.
For Blondes - Carmel at John Frieda, London.
We shot her at Queen’s Gate. She is an iPhone girl.

33. INTRODUCING † LAUREN ADRIANA †
Lauren is 28. She is wearing the CARO tee in yellow with matching yellow skirt from Paul Smith, sandals from Bottega Veneta and a classic Céline bag. Her sunglasses are by Oliver Peoples, earrings by Marie Helene de Taillac, her engagement ring (left hand) is by Suzanne Belperron and lastly and most importantly, the gorgeous jewel on her right hand is called the Osiris and it is her own design.
Fulco is a sheltie and is posing ‘au naturale‘ looking handsome and knowing it.
Lauren is a jewellery designer, specialising in bespoke designs under her own name – LAUREN ADRIANA. Her designs are magical and full of panache – very much like their creator.
When she isn’t designing jewellery she is an avid foodie and always has wonderful recommendations that are worth writing down. Here she shares two of her current favourites that both, intriguingly, revolve around jewel-like foods (of course!). The first is ‘Alexeeva & Jones‘; an artisan chocolate shop which recently opened on 297, Westbourne Grove that is “perfect for presents or self-gifting”.
The second is in Paris, it is called ‘L’Eclair de Genie’ and it’s a concept eclair store. So if you are bored of macaroons already, head down to 14 rue Pavee and indulge in something new and much more exciting.
