Dream Closets of Envy

I finally made it to the Museum at FIT to see the Daphne Guinness exhibition.  She has the sort of closet I could only dream of.

Curioser and Curioser

No wait, it's Stranger & Stranger.  These design guys are the same ones behind the fantastic Kraken Rum bottles and now beautifully designed and packages Absinthe (available to their Christmas list - of which I hope to be on at some point).

Show me yours...

As everyone is prepping for fashion week and it is becoming harder and harder to book a model for a full day, show packages are circulating, the city is filled with tall lanky girls running frantically around town to multiple castings.  As a photographer I do not get to receive the printed packages, but do check them out online to see the new models at my favorite agencies and try to think forward to next seasons editorials.  

I am always impressed with Wilhelmina's design and packaging.  Their package always includes a clever t shirt and tote.  This year is a cheeky play on their name paired with some more classic design.  Every season I see theses shirts and covet them (and I am not a t shirt wearer, but there is always an exception).  Check out more of the package at  

If anyone knows where I can get one..... hint, hint, hint.

This was the incredible design from the SS11 package.  They shot all their girls wearing vintage metal shirts and included in the package was this SUPER AMAZING shirt.  I do secretly love heavy metal.

Lanvin AW 2011 ad

This Lanvin AW 2011 ad has been going viral for about a day or so now.  At first I saw the still of what looked like models doing synchronized dance moves.  It is beautifully shot, the models look gorgeous, and there is definitely a really fun quality to it that I have come to associate with Alber Elbaz.  I was however, rolling on the floor when I realized that I too know those dance moves, they are from the game Dance Central on the XBox 360!  I am not sure if it is supposed to be intentionally recognizable.  If so (and I hope it is) then a good bit of camp pop culture added into the overly serious game of fashion.

Obsession of the moment

Looking through the internet trying to put together a proposal for our latest editorial I came across the work of Delfina Delettrez.  She is a fourth generation Fendi, creating jewelry with the Fendi couture aesthetic while infusing it with odd and sometime macabre imagery.  They are truly creative and even challenging pieces for the high end market.

Sticky Lips

When I first moved to New York about 2.5 years ago, I started doing sticky lips.  This was actually an accident during a beauty shoot.  Too much lip gloss was applied and it got caught.  I loved the way it looked so much I try to over exaggerate the look and capture at least one sticky lip at the end of each beauty shoot.
This is the one that started it all...

Here is the continuation of this theme in my 
collaboration with Duck...

and the one Duck took of me...

For Cinco de Mayo we attended the Vice Magazine party sponsored by 1800 Tequila featuring their 3rd artist series.

This series focused on a luchador theme over 6 bottles and known artists such as Gary Basemen, Yuko Shimizu, Alex Hank, Tes One, Tristan Eaton, and Ray Smith.

I have to say the party was a lot of fun and Duck brought his own luchador mask to wear which was definitely a hit. We're even on their blog.
