Terry Richardson & I
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.
Just wanted to show off some pics from what was possibly the coolest job EVER. Kustom shot their 2009 catalogue on the North Shore of Oahu and I was lucky enough to be invited along. It was a blinding 3 days, mostly because of the amazing people I got to work with. I cannot begin to tell you just how much fun I had… and I’m not totally sure I can be cheeky enough to categorize this as work either…
Last night some friends and I got to see the amazing new Sam Haskins Exhibition at Milk studios here in NYC. The party was a celebration for the fist joint book project between Sam and Tommy Hilfiger entitled “Fashion Etcetera by Sam Haskins: Tommy Hilfiger Special Edition.”
Sam is such an amazing and iconic photographer and there were over 100 prints in the show so the crowd got to see a great selection of his works.
Sam Haskins suffered a ‘moderate stroke’ before the show and is “currently being stabilised at St Vincent’s hospital and is eventually expected to recover most of his mobility. He will certainly require weeks of rehabilitation in New York before returning home to Australia”.
Lets all wish Sam a full recovery and continue supporting his work!
Last week I shot a book cover being published by Simon and Schuster that will come out next year about a young polygamist wife (the 18th wife to be exact) and my goal was to portray a character at odds with her oppressive and complicated situation. This vision came to fruition with the help of my wild head of strawberry blond hair. In other words, my long hair entangled around my face is supposed to symbolize struggle. As if this moment wasn’t strange enough for me, the hair stylist frightened me by breaking out a large device that resembled a machine gun! Ironically, it was just a leaf blower because supposedly fans just don’t cut it any more. After I was finished shooting, my hair felt amazing and tousled to perfection. I thought it was the bizarre combination of a leaf blower and hairspray. The hair stylist said he used Moroccan Oil in my hair. I was hooked right away, so I started using a dime sized amount in my hair after I showered and my hair looks shinier and healthier than ever. It’s reasonably priced too…you can find it here!
