Eleven-year-old Becky suffers from chronic lung disease and has always dreamt of being a model for the day. So, when it came to picking her Starlight Wish she decided a day of pampering and posing on her very own photoshoot was the top of her agenda!
Longtime friends of Starlight, Boden heard about Becky’s modelling aspirations and instantly stepped in to help grant Becky’s wish in true style!
One studio set, three hula hoops, two skateboards, five torn backdrops, 143 outtakes and a whole lot of pizzas later, Becky’s dreams had been made a reality.
Becky modelled Boden’s beautiful new SS17 childrenswear collection alongside her fourteen-year-old sister Mollie. The girls received top treatment in hair and make-up and were delighted to pick out their favourite pieces from the collection to pose in.
Becky and Mollie took to modelling (and hula-hooping) like ducks to water. Check out some of the shots from the day!
It’s great because it’s something for Becky and only Becky. You can buy holidays but this experience is a one-off; you can’t repeat it.
