“I try to keep in shape, but I don’t worry what people think”

“The papers will be picking on someone else tomorrow…”

These quotes could have been taken from the recent Rooney v Vardy court case, but are actually from a 2006 interview with Coleen (then McLoughlin) for UK CosmoGirl with accompanying photography by me.

After shooting the cover I was given five minutes to create a completely different look for the inside pages. Thankfully Coleen loved the dress the stylist had chosen, and although it was too big for her tiny frame she seized the moment, gathered the ruffles and stole the show. Allowing me just enough time to shoot a couple of rolls of film before she dashed to her next appointment.

Thank you Coleen. This still remains one of my favourite celebrity portrait sittings.
