Bex White threw herself courageously into the breach to take part in our Lockdown Selfies series, shot by the Restrained Elegance models (and their kind assistants) during Coronavirus self-isolation. It's been inspiring to see what our model friends come up with when left to their own devices, and this is brilliant.
Bex is hard at work cleaning the stairs for her boss. Well, she's not exactly hard at work. She's sort of working, sort of taking a little break. Sort of making a couple of phone calls. And not really cleaning the stairs very much at all; her boss is out, and she needs to relax! She's dressed far too nicely for menial work in any case, why on earth did her boss have her do such a stupid job?
Sadly for Bex, her boss, coming back unexpectedly, does not share Bex's opinion of multi-tasking. On the contrary, he believes that she's slacking off abominably and must be punished! Which is how poor Bex ends up being made to strip out of her lovely dress and silky lingerie, to be chained spreadeagle to the bed! What a humiliating end to her domestic cleaning career! And what a mean, mean boss!
Hywel's note: bless them, Bex and partner shot this video first on a dSLR but when they looked back at it they realised it had missed focus on some shots, especially the close-ups. So they went back and reshot the whole thing the next day on an iPhone. Which I must say is really dedication above and beyond the call of duty. But that's why we have two updates of essentially the same video today- because I thought each
version had strengths and weaknesses, but the footage didn't cut together all that well when I tried to make it a single clip. This one is the iPhone version.
