HELMUT LANG, CORY KENNEDY and an afternoon fooling around in the East Village.
my friend Cory styled up a storm, and we hit the streets to shoot the new Helmut Lang collection for her blog

So, last week I worked for Nina Ricci and got a sneak peek at Peter Copping’s pre-fall collection. I became enamored with all the delicate and light colors used throughout the collection. Everything is very feminine with a bit of an edge. I’m one to wear a lot of black, navy, grey, and nude, so this collection has inspired me to add some very pale pastels into my wardrobe.
Here are some photos from a shoot I recently did for Elle, where I got to personally meet and be dressed by 4 different editors and fashion editors from the magazine. I was really pleased, as this meant that I was able to get an insight into the artistic outlook of this heavyweight fashion magazine.
I arrived to a wonderful team on a frosty December morning, made my introductions, and went straight to hair and make up-the day had begun! Over the next 8 hours I was transformed four times proving that Elle knows how to do it well, and with speed!!
The first look was all about the poncho-mac. They’re coming in people and soon!
This was followed by the flowery light hearted hippy chick look with some funky dungarees. Next it was on to that timeless denim style with those red lips that are very in vogue right now.
For the final look I was sleeked back and vamped, and getting a bit more sassy than any of the other outfits had allowed me!
It was an exciting day and lots of fun. I certainly look forward to working with the Elle team again.
Just returned home from a morning casting for the company Dickies and bummed cause I totally didn’t get the job! They were asking for a size 4 (I’m a size 2 to 4). Get this…the director said that I was too slim! A little model secret: I even wore 2 pairs of boy shorts (just in case), hoping to add at least a half inch. Maybe, I did sort of notice the director kind of staring at my strange undie-combo. The model that did get the job just laughed and said, “Now this has got to be the only time that being bigger has ever been a good thing for me!” As I was sulking on the opposite side of the fence to myself, “People are you kidding me…when does being too thin ever happen in model land? So all you bigger girls out there, don’t go on a diet, cause there are certainly some great paying jobs out there for you too! This is why I love my agent, Linda! Even if a job may not be my stereotype, forte, or even skill, she believes in me so much, that she’ll always afford me the opportunity. Love her!
Yesterday, I was extremely flattered to be photographed by Scott Schuman, from http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/. If you don’t have a copy of his book, you should definitely pick up a copy for inspiration. In my opinion, his eye and sense of style is extremely on point!
Yesterday I was wearing:
Shoes: Surface to Air
Shirt: Club Monaco
Tuxedo Cardigan: JCrew
Jeans: Cheap Monday
A few weeks ago Amanda Lepore put on a performance at Sydney nightclub Nevermind. Amanda is NYC most famous Transgender nightclub hostess.. Being the partygoer I am this had to be checked out! She has been the advertising face for Heatherette, M.A.C. (cosmetics), Mego Jeans, Swatch, CAMP Cosmetics to name a few. Also has some funky beats to jump around to… Apparently the amount of work she’s had done could amount to buying 10 houses in NYC whoa!!!
