magazine editorials

here are a few more teaser pictures from V magazine's size issue. I just love what they did here...minimal wardrobe; killer shoes and accessories along with fabulous/ uber glammed out hair and make up. The styling was done by Nicola Formichetti, and the assistant stylists Emily Eisen, Jessica Shaw, Enrica Ferrazza, Angelo deSanto...oh how I wish my name was there too!

this bish here... is killing it in the L'Officiel magazine spread...I feel the Grace Jones vibe they were going for. Ciara....W.O.R.K!!!! I am going crazy trying to find who styled this shoot, if you know, send me a message please...

Liya Kebede is just so whimsical-fairy-rollerblader-couture esque-victorian collar beauty in this editorial for Elle Italia Jan 2010. I swear she never ages. Simple Beautiful.

I dress like I still live in LA, this must stop

so I got my dates mixed up and thought today was the open house @ F.I.T. I got all jazzy and braved the freezing only to find out that it is actually! I have also come to realize, since moving to NY a week ago...The HAWK is real...ok. I will not be trying to be cute anymore... well cute and covered up! I was looking soo cute today, but highly inappropriate for this weather. Also I have an interview for an internship with Honey Magazine ( ) on Wednesday morning, send up a prayer for me...I really want this!!!

what I wore
dress::gossip boutique in Pasadena, Ca
scarf:: lf warehouse, LA
tights:: forever 21
boots: garmet district, LA
bangles:: NY
belt:: melrose flea market
and yes, I did have a coat on :)

2010...i'm going for it!

Happy New Years all! I pray that you rung in the New Year in a fabulous way. I am finally in NYC but it was way too cold for me to go and do anything. I am soo excited to be here pursuing my career goals of being a stylist, I have a list of goals that I want to accomplish this year, so here goes::
