It was a hard day's work in Dubai for Mica Paris yesterday, as the singer took to the beach for a charity campaign.
The star gamely risked her hair and make-up as she took to the water in full eveningwear. At one point the soul singer even dipped her face in the water - no doubt more of a challenge for the make-up artist than the model.
Somewhat inappropriately dressed for the location, the buxom star's figure-hugging, purple evening gown left little to the imagination - not least because she had worn it for a dip in the sea.
Luckily the mother-of-two's curves were all in the right places, visible as she held the frock's hemline up around her hips.
Strands of silver jewellery were her only other embellishment, save a bizarre arrangement of wrist ties that the 39-year-old wore throughout, one assumes, in tribute to the campaign's cause.
Laughing and joking with the team, Mica appeared to be enjoying the experience, holding a sober face only when necessary for a shot.
Photographer Candice, who specialises in underwater photography, was better kitted out for the occasion, complete with wetsuit and snorkel, allowing her to shoot the singer from both above and below the water.
The team were shooting on the idyllic shores of Dubai's multi-billion The World project - a series of artificial islands based on the countries and continents of the world. Appropriately the shoot took place on the white sands of the UK-shaped island.
The photo session will be to promote a campaign for fresh drinking water around the world, 'Fresh2O', expected to launch ahead of UN World Water Day on March 22.
