She added: "The hair for the other cover was literally created by her getting dressed, getting her hair caught in the coat and us pulling pieces out and giving it a bit of a finish. That's how we approached the hair for all of the shots – we just got the texture right, all looked at it in the mirror and then we just let it evolve."
