I was in New York at the beginning of the month styling a photo shoot for my friend Stacey Bendet's fabulous fashion line, Alice + Olivia. The photos, shot by famed photographer Mick Rock, were being used for an instillation in her Bryant Park store to honor 2009 Fall Fashion Week.
Here's an **exclusive** look at the preparation:
Hair: Andre Rodman for Frederic Fekkai
Makeup: Anthea King
Models: Cory Kennedy, Peaches Geldof, Byrdie Bell
Location: Chelsea Hotel, NYC
Cory Kennedy (blogger; hipster extraordinaire)
Inspiration: Old Hollywood glam meets rocker... a little Audrey (Hepburn), a little Grace (Kelly), a little Katy (Perry). Dark, Crimson lips, winged eyes and perfectly coiffed hair.
(In the name of rock history - We shot in the EXACT bathroom where Sex Pistols Sid Vicious killed Nancy Spungen... so we just had to take this pic!)
Peaches Geldof (rock royalty)
Inspiration: 80's punk rock... bright pink lips, teased hair, gilded eyes.
Byrdie Bell (socialite)
Inspiration: Mod ala Edie Sedgwick or Sharon Tate with a contemporary rock twist. Dark, heroin-chic eyes with pale lips. Long, loose curls teased at the crown of the head for added volume.
