Hanging out with the Masked Beatles: Graffiti art on New Oxford Street

I don’t mind telling you guys – I’m knackered. It’s been a helluva day, taking in Ted Baker’s autumn/winter fashion presentation (I have many, many pics and a gorgeous little vid to share with you anon), a Christmas in July event with jewellery, accessories and a nifty bit of family-friendly technology (El is in love), plus a mini photo shoot for my shiny new work website.

I’m going to start at the end: I wanted a boss backdrop for my new homepage image, and when I heard about the stonking graffiti art by Mr Brainwash on New Oxford Street, I knew I had to give that a whirl. It features my most beloved band (The Beatles) y’see – wearing coloured gang masks (!) I didn’t actually plan to do the pics today (if I had, I wouldn’t have worn a dress that blended in so well to the background – I can thank Dolly Dare for that), but we were in the neighbourhood and the had rain stopped for a good ten minutes.

Anyway, the pic we’ve chosen works pretty well, and I’ve got plenty more photographic evidence before someone rips this brill skillz Beatle memento down…

Approaching the Fabulous Four
I’m like a fashion chameleon, right?
If you want to snap this brilliant artwork, head to New Oxford Street in Central London (five minuets walk from Tottenham Court Road station)
Ready for your close-up, boys?
El was on hand to admire his heroes
The Queen features around the corner
Love this Diamond Jubilee tribute, street stylee
