not made up

September came and went but before it was too late I had to share with you the best ponytail and fish-tail braid that I ever did receive from John Masters hair team backstage at the Green Shows.

This past month I shot an eco-conscious beauty shoot with Gilles Bensimon for Above Magazine - a Vanity Fair-style mag for Avant-garde environmentalists. It took place on a beautiful beach - but unfortunately one located at the tip of Long Island in the middle of winter. Submerged in freezing cold water isn’t my ideal shooting condition - but hey, since when do I call the shots on these things anyway? :o) Despite the cold temperatures, I must admit the opportunity to shoot outdoors was invigorating.

I love how Gilles sat right down in the cold water.

The curious case of the dancing dog!

Brazilian Christmas

My friend Fabianne closed down her Cafe & Pastry shop on Christmas Eve night and created a feast for us. It was a proper Brazilian Christmas with rice, beans, lentil, fish and the most exquisite desserts. Of course she cooked for an army so I ended up taking about 10 pounds of food home.

Going for the Gold! Gold-plated hair at a recent photoshoot. Hey, rappers get gold teeth. Why can’t girls get gold hair?

Passed by the news stand on Prince and saw my cover for the VERY Style Guide for which we did a behind-the-scenes video here. Nice surprise!

Kayaking in Kona

Took a little time out to go kayaking in the rain in Kona, Hawaii. This of course was after I swam with sea turtles.
