I love doing Red Carpet and press events for talent and I was really grateful to be able to get another Hollywood Reporter cover (the first one was 2 years ago) doing Octavia Spencer for their December 6the issue featuring The Actresses. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered that at the shoot was Emma Thompson, Julia Roberts, Lupita Nyong’o, Amy Adams and Oprah Winfrey. It was so fun to be able to hang out the with famous Glam Squads and I picked up a few tips. I love the cover, it came out so beautiful. Until the next one…….

I love wearing black and actually it’s become the unofficial uniform for hair stylists and make-up artists. Think the artists at the MAC store. Anyway, it really works for me and I like the look.

Having a black shoe wardrobe is essential to keeping your black uniform interesting. Here are my picks for a well rounded black shoe selection…..

So, one of my many and favorite jobs is doing hair and/or make-up for Designer’s Look Books.  I have been working with gown and dress designer Dalia MacPhee for a few years and just finished her fall 2012 Look Book. For Dalia, I usually do hair and often work with one of my favorite make-up artists (who I met on a Dalia shoot) Leibi Carias. I was excited to see Leibi because I missed the last shoot. We arrived at the same time to find the electricity was out in the building we were shooting in and we would have to climb 11 floors to the photographer’s loft!! As the models sprinted past us, Leibi and I slowly made our way up the 11 stories trying to cheer each other on. Needless to say I was huffing and puffing when I got to the 11th floor…..  We quickly recovered, though, and had a fun shoot.  Here’s a few pics… Stay tuned for Dalia’s Fall Look Book, viewable on her site…

W Magazine has a beautiful new spread in the current issue featuring the iconic model, Naomi Campbell. She is still, in my opinion, one of the best models in the world, as you can see from these stunning images. Check out the behind the scenes video of her shoot …..

So bright colors are still trending and  one of my favorite colors this summer is Orange.  Although I am really partial to black… for summer orange just adds a fresh look.  It even goes really nice with black as you can see by the orange duster Dawn Richard modeled in Issue 13 of Regard Magazine.  I put together some other ideas on how to add some orange into your summer wardrobe….. Have fun….
