Jodie Kidd has donned figure-hugging racing gear to recreate the image that features on her Formula One-inspired designer Sky+ HD set top box.
To celebrate Sky's debut season as broadcaster of the motorsport, Kidd joined comedian Vic Reeves and driving legend Sir Stirling Moss in designing a limited edition Sky+ HD Designer Box collection
Kidd, a passionate car enthusiast, opted for an illustration of a glamorous 'pin up' blonde woman in a racing outfit, posing next to a red sports car.
The former model has now recreated the design seen on the 1TB box in a vintage-inspired photoshoot.
"I've always been a dedicated F1 fan and I am already hooked on this season," said Kidd when the boxes were announced.
"For my design, I wanted to create a glamorous 'pin up girl' look, as I love the iconic vintage paintings from the era. With the addition of the red racing car, it really stands out."
The exclusive F1 collection will launch ahead of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone from July 8, but customers can register their interest in purchasing one of the boxes at www.sky.com/designerboxes
Each box is priced at £149 for existing Sky customers, plus £10.25 per month for a HD subscription. New customers can buy one for £249 when joining Sky with the HD package.
