It all started with Koo Stark, remember her? The sultry brunette who dated Prince Andrew back in the 80s. In order to deal with the paparazzi frenzy she decided to arm herself with a camera and start snapping them while they descended upon her. That is back in the day when cameras were produced on film and not every Tom, Dick and Harry had one. Well now since the digital takeover SLRs and shoot and point models are now seen in the hands of practically everyone. Now you can’t move without seeing celebrities with cameras. Cheryl Cole was a vision in pink Chanel on the cover of last December’s UK Glamour but it was her her cute gold camera that stood out to me. The camera that she was holding was the Lomography Fisheye No. 2 Gold Edition. Then there was fashionista darling and socialite, Olivia Palermo who appeared on the cover of Spanish Marie Claire last April. It was a retro glamour shoot by Sergi Pons and styled by Florence Reveilaud. She was wearing pieces from Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton and Valentino and holding an old vintage camera. It’s not just in magazines that celebs have been seen with cameras, they have been sighted on the town with their little beauties. Alexa Chung has been spied front row of the Chanel fashion show sporting a Diana F+! Lomo camera and One Direction’s, Harry Styles was also spotted with a Fuji Instax camera. Lomography often known as Lomo are a brand who produce a wide range of retro cameras in great colours that look really great in the flesh as well as on screen. Look out for a review on the brand shortly.
