The LOOK team headed out in force to Trancoso in Brazil’s Bahia region to shoot the hottest new looks for spring. Trancoso was the perfect backdrop for our shoots with unspoilt beaches, picturesque views and multicoloured streets. It also happens to be a secret celebrity hotspot – well, if it’s good enough for Gisele! Check out our behind the scenes shoot pics.
We shot and stayed at Villas de Trancoso, a little paradise of its own which had lush tropical gardens, luxury pool and private beach, a dream location! And with super-cute rooms with all the mod cons and a breakfast so delicious that even Gordon Ramsay would be jels, this five-star hotel was also the perfect place to unwind. You can rent a villa that sleeps two from £290 per night (including breakfast and tax). See villasdetrancoso.com for more info.
Five things the LOOK team couldn’t live without:
- Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream: perfect for lips, dry skin, burns, almost everything.
- An oversized beach bag.
- We all live in our denim shorts – go for a slightly larger size to make them slouchy and comfortable.
- Phillip Kingsley Swim Cap: the ultimate all rounder, protects against UV and chlorine.
- And finally the wear anywhere loose summer dress.
