Team ELLE traveled to Las Vegas to capture Victoria Beckham for the March cover. It was a trip that took in a private jet, a hotel penthouse, a fashion trunk show, and a sumptuous lunch. From exotic grey pigeons to giant disco balls - click through to see the highlights...
Our carriage awaits. A six armchair, one sofa private jet. As you do. Why drive when you can fly?
Ever wondered what the loo on a private plane looks like? Quest no more. It's covered in black crocodile embossed leather, of course.
White leather chairs on swivel settings - the seats on offer when travelling by private jet. The red rose posies were a nice touch too. Easyjet, eat your heart out.
The story plan – looks, locations, set-ups…
All the make up brushes you could ever need...
The shoes. It helps if you have had practice walking in heels...
Accessories – chunky, silver and solid looking
Breakfast of champions (there were croissants too)
Why have one pair of hair tongs when you can have three (and two straightening irons, and a hairdryer)?

Moodboards. Who knew Rutger Hauer was a style icon. And if you wanted to know how the bird fit in…
We hired one for the day. Didn't shoot it, mind, but paid several hundred dollars to have it on set, just in case
A buffet of nail choice. Finally decided on nude Essy 744, Topless & Barefoot
Hands up who wants a giant disco ball?
We had to sign a health and safety waiver before they let us shoot this one
Downtime between takes
That's a lot of nudity...

The designer herself, wooing her customers. They love her as much as they love the clothes
And on to a private lunch. Our 48 hours with Victoria Beckham ended as it began... With food.
