Give us 3 adjectives to describe your day with Victoria Beckham

KG: It was manic, it was intense and it was exhilarating.

EllenVon Unwerth is one of the best fashion photographers of our time, what was your experience working with her like?

KG: Ellen was amazing to work with - so positive and so happy all the time. She was shooting back to back at the Cannes Film Festival that week and it was so hard to lock her down for this shoot. But she was so sweet and accommodating and always trying to make light of any tense situation. I think she makes celebrities feel at ease with her which is really 90 per cent of the shoot. Once you can get them to do what you want, you are almost guaranteed a great shoot. And bear in mind Ellen is a celebrity herself with an incredible reputation and repertoire of work, so when she came across as so down to earth and fun, it was such a pleasant surprise.

In the interview, Victoria Beckham says how important Asia is to her, why do you think she has her eyes set on the region?

KG: I think Victoria knows that many women in Asia already wear her sunglasses and carry her leather goods and accessories. It's such a hit here and given that Victoria is so petite and slim, her figure and size is something that Asian women can empathize and relate to. Add to the fact that her slim, sexy silhouettes and particular attention to tailoring and fit, her line immediately speaks to women in this region. So, it's no surprise that Asia is on her agenda - with Club 21 stocking her main line and Pois with her Victoria by Victoria Beckham line, she already has a loyal following in Singapore.
