Harold David X Instyle Magazine cover with Jesinta Franklin

Harold David was commissioned by Instyle to shoot candid snaps of celebrities attending the Instyle Audi Women of Style Awards. Each person was photographed in the custom built photo booth which was backstage. In true Harold David style he made his subject feel completely at ease instantly. It was when Jessinta Winter stepped in front of the camera that something magical happened. Although it was never planned, Instyle then chose this one perfect shot for the July cover.

InStyle editor Emily Taylor said: “Normally a cover takes months of planning, weeks of styling and hours of hair and make-up in order to create the perfect shot.

“When Jesinta stepped into the booth, something unexpected happened: a brief, quiet and unguarded moment, captured in a split-second, before the party atmosphere broke the spell.
