Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Singer, song-writer and Strictly Come Dancing starlet Sophie Ellis-Bextor has been announced as the face of 'Copper Blush' - the 2015 Colour of the Year as predicted by the trends team at leading paint brand, Dulux. Taking inspiration from the coppery hues of Pre-Raphaelite muses, the model and mother of three bathes in sunlight and recreates the pose of 'Flaming June' - the painting produced by Sir Frederic Leighton in 1895. Sophie dazzles in the release of a stylised film and stunning series of photography that depicts her waking in the morning in a contemporary boudoir setting then discovering Copper Blush surrounding her and breathing warmth into the room. To view the film, please visit: http://youtu.be/F7L-UhsgoqE The film begins with Sophie in a dark teal coloured room, inspired by last year's Colour of the Year, before she wakes and begins exploring her bedroom. As the story evolves, we see a new dawn break and copper sunlight seep through the curtains which bring her surroundings to life and evokes deep and bold colours associated to the Pre-Raphaelite period. The film also includes a voiceover from Sophie as she recites a poem from the same era by Emily Dickinson, 'To See Her is a Picture'. The poem, one of 1,800 produced by Dickinson in her lifetime, evokes the warmth of the Copper Blush colour and the personality of Bextor - a stylish, captivating and compassionate individual. 'Copper Blush', was predicted as the Colour of the Year following extensive research by a 20-strong panel of global colour and trend experts who specialise in different areas of colour use, brought together by Dulux parent company, AkzoNobel. Collectively the team scours the globe, exploring a broad range of different cultures and industries including interiors, fashion, beauty, design and even social and economic influences. The result is an annual trend forecast known as 'Colour Futures', which depicts five key trends for the year ahead and one true Colour of the Year. 2015 at Strictly Come Dancing - London, United Kingdom - Sunday 15th February 2015
