First Came that MUST HAVE Hair and Make-up prep..The shoot was for L’oreal Mizani so of course… Mizani Products were used! It was a pleasure to style for Mizani! I am such a big fan of their products! This part always takes a bit long while working on set.. but I love being nosy and having a look at how other amazing creatives work! Also, here’s a lil’ sneak peek at some jewelry I was using that day!
Here is our first page spread!! I loved the contrast in this shoot Purity versus dark Edge!! I was in love with the Bitching and junkfood bodysuit to the left.. the velvet texture is amaaaazing!!
Here is Page Spread number two! I loved the whole idea of mixing the feather dress in with the two white dresses!!
If you want to create a neck-piece look like the one on the right?.. don’t be afraid of layering pieces up! I paired a body chain with a choker Necklace (Topshop and Kenza Accessories).
Here is Page spread number three!! it just screams Angels vs Demons… and best of all a closer look at our Cover shot.. without all the writing of course!!
The cover look was a PRIME example of how you can revamp a dress you have had in your wardrobe for a while! I layered a detailed Bralette on top of a Lipsy dress to give it a fresh AW12 ‘fetish trend’ look… I think it works!!!
A sneak peek look at a shot that was not published… you lucky lot!!
Page spread number four!! Want to go for the fetish/edgy trend for AW12 and don’t and scared its just to goth for you?… how about some Smokey eyes, a statement dress.. but then lighten up the outfit with some bright/delicate accessories (to the left) like I done!!
Last but not least… Another shot that was not published…
Well that’s the end of the ‘behind the scenes’ pics.. why not take a look below for a close up at all the shots!!
