Posing in a sheer shirt and crushed velvet hotpants it is easy to see why Sarah Ann Macklin is hot property right now.
The 5.9″ brunette was already a successful model with London agency Select when she bagged supermodel David Gandy, and the beautiful couple have been causing a stir on the social scene since confirming they were an item back in May.
Essex boy David might be the world’s highest paid male model, but in this fun look book shoot for internet fashion brand missguided.co.uk Sarah Ann shows that she too makes an excellent pretty face.
Shot by fashion photographer Euan Banks on location at an East London Warehouse, the shoot features the brand’s first in-house collection.
The Manchester based label was founded in 2009 and is now an award-winning retailer stocking over 3000 items.
The in-house designs showcased by Sarah Ann are heavily inspired by the catwalk, and the 90 piece range has a heavy emphasis on ‘gothicology’ and opulence, featuring dramatic fabrics like leather, velvet and jacquard.

Sara Ann is David Gandy’s first girlfriend since he split with the girl group’s Mollie King.
Following the spilt in February Gandy gave a barbed interview to a magazine blaming his perfectionism.
He told Men’s Health: ‘My perfectionism can make it difficult. I know my ex-girlfriend struggled.
‘Things have to be perfect – everything in the house, every car I buy. That’s incredibly hard to live with if you don’t understand it.
‘If either a relationship or my work must suffer, then I’m afraid it has to be the relationship. Hopefully, one day a girl will come along and I’ll think she’s far superior to my work and let my priorities go. That’s what I’m aiming for.’

She told the magazine: ‘We’d known each other for a few years, but at your Bafta party, we just clicked…’ and revealed that there first date involved a game of family board game adding: ‘We ended up playing six rounds of Jenga! It actually got quite competitive.’
