Stud Wars

Remember I told you that I got a casting for JC/DC? Well, to the casting I went. Yesterday in fact, on Fashion's Night Out.
Deciding what to wear was a tedious process since I wanted to look like it was just me being me but I also wanted to look thin since you know, they're looking for thin. I ended up wearing this indigo number adorned with studs and a super-short hem and pairing it with yet more studs in the form of my 5" heels. This look undoubtedly drew attention to me whilst I walked down Oxford and Regents street. Also the shoes just about killed my feet.
I walked into the store only to spot Roisin Murphy (she sounds unfamiliar but I guarantee you've seen her face) try on shoes with her larger than life stylist. I look lost and the shop assistant ask if I'm here for the casting. I say yes and she gets me to fill out a form. Now I wait.
Standing there I check out my 'competition' and spot a girl with her 'book' from Select models: pretty but I'm taller. A man with a big camera walks into the store and I catch him looking at me...Nerves are really kicking in.
I'm invited to go downstairs where I meet the casting director and she says: 'Get Zhenya into the dress, please. No! Wait...actually, give her the jumpsuit'. I go to the changing room and pray that the jumpsuit isn't a sample 0 size. I put it on and result! It's actually big! I am also given funky shoes and asked to walk before 5 people. I do as I'm told but now reflecting upon my walk it was atrocious considering the shoes were 2 sizes too big. The casting director takes a head shot and a full length one.
The male photographer then asks if I mind going back up to the store so he can take a few pictures and obviously I agree. He picks out a position with natural lighting and asks me to pose. I try. *Click, click* 'Good' he announces. 'And one more...That's great'.
I go back to the changing room and give them the jumpsuit (which was oh so cute in white cotton with colourfull poppers on the front and a wide belt). I thank everyone and leave, praying that they aren't too judgemental upon my walk.
My favourite pair of shoes!
