Chak-Chak-Chaka Khan…


What is this, an eighties diva revival? First Whitney on X-Factor, then the news that Chaka Khan has been photographed by Aitken Jolly for the Christmas Evans campaign. Evans, I salute your style. My mole-in-the-know tells me that she was fab and loved all the purple and black pieces, the leopard-print mac and the shoulder-grazing earrings. The best bit was when she started warbling Beyonce tunes at the end of the shoot, “everybody had goose bumps, it was amazing! ” Jealous, much?

The closest I ever got to hearing a celebrity sing on a shoot was back when I used to fob my celebrity cover shoots off on a willing freelancer. She once reported that Ashanti sang her way through the entire shoot, making all her conversational exchanges in song. “Can I have a cup of tea”, “what’s my next outfit” and “Let’s have a look at the Polaroid” were all note perfect.

I do think Chaka looks amazing in the pics although if I’d been art directing I would have added some snazzy Sophy Robson talons. Anyway, until the campaign launches (16th Nov) I’ll leave you with this (check out the oh-so-this-season thigh boots)…
