KILLDARLING SUMMER 2011 from KILLDARLING

I did the makeup on this video look book for my friend Sam's dress collection called KILLDARLING. A bunch of über-talented friends in the fashion business joined forces to make this incredible short that showcases bad-ass party dresses for tough girlinas. FOOD FIGHT!

We shot a Casio advertorial for the April 2o11 issue of NYLON 
on Feb 27th in Los Angeles.
Here are a couple outtakes from our shoot:
C.C. looking très chic
Elizabeth: just plain cool
I used Make Up For Ever products on both girls- 
including my fave greasebox pink on C.C's lips.
-AND, PLEASE-
If you don't already know MAGDA WOSINSKA's work - check it! 
Her photography is so totally boss.

Stüssy Spring 2o11

 Isn't it apropos that my first gig as a California girl would be for quintessentially-Cali brand Stüssy
We shot this look book over 2 days in a downtown studio - about as far from the beach as one can be while still inside LA city limits! The lens woman was Shaniqwa Jarvis, my friend, collaborator, and soul sister. She and I not only share a love of fashion, photo, jetset & dancefloors - we also share a birthday* 
Here's a vid from the shoot...

Stussy - Stussy Womens Spring 2011 Lookbook from Stussy on Vimeo.
 * Our bday is Sunday MARCH 20th...hint iPad hint... 
Honestly, though, if you want to give us a present, please give to Japan. Thx, D

John Galliano: Memories

Very simply put, my career wouldn't be the same without John Galliano.
It was specifically here, on Galliano's runway productions, that I acquired the expertise that "separates the men from the boys".
I also met dear friends working backstage at his shows, some who I trust with my life. It was a privilege & an honor to work for the man on his eponymous collections, as well as those for Dior. 
If we could set aside our dismay of recent events to celebrate the work of an industrious visionary & maker... 
I invite you to come with me and take a trip...
It started at Dior haute couture Spring 2oo4. 
This was my audition with Pat McGrath, a bona fide trial by fire. 
I tacked down Hana's brows - which I'd only just learned to do moments earlier while watching the demo on the first girl to arrive - and then came the execution of a perfect, graphic makeup: No pressure. 
The show was at the Polo de Paris in the Bois de Boulogne. It was still dark out when we got started. Before first looks, Pat checked my work (my heart racing) & then she declared, "Perfect!" 
Had I known that was just the beginning...
