In lieu of my photoshoot on Monday with model Hannah, I figured I ought to post a few photos from our shoot last time.
We were going for a simple, Parisian-inspired look, and I meant that beyond just the beret. Originally I wanted to go with an all-black ensemble, but after extensive shopping, I felt this top was what I wanted her to wear. It’s from the Victoria’s Secret Catalog and is by pixie hopkins. It kind of has a babydoll thing going on there, and has a silk and metallic top layer. It’s creme with little silver pin-stripes throughout that kind of give it a little shimmer. I like the little velvet bow in the middle that just seals the deal.
I pair it with some black H&M jeans and my vintage serrento sterling necklace. Viola! And I guess we got the message across because at least one person passed us while shooting as was like “Hey! Parisian!” And more said so on my MM/deviant art/flickr. So I guess our goal was achieved.
I am posting the second one because it shows the top in color, even though I am not crazy about that photo. The third one is what I consider the day’s “Best Shot.” You get a better glimpse of the necklace (that Hannah forgot to give to me…I’ll get it back on Monday).
Hannah is 5’7" and is pretty much my favorite model ever. She is a freelancer in my area, but I am intent on helping her get with an agency. She has a great look and models superbly. We want her to be the next Kate Moss.
And speaking of Kate Moss, the photo that inspired this shoot with actually a picture of Kate Moss from the 2006 Pirelli (sp?) calendar, which came out slightly after her cocaine scandal. She appeared glamorously (and toplessly!) in a convertible car wearing nothing but a beret. That what inspired this – The beret and the simplicity. I am putting up a picture where Kate’s boobage is cropped out.
We’re doing a romantic/dark/vintage themed shoot on Monday! Wish us luck :D
Finally, I promise, AGAIN, that I will soon, soon upload photos of me, and not just the styling I do. I really just haven’t been going out much lately and am not in the mood to just play dress up :-/
Oh, and if anyone wants this top, I’d be willing to sell it for like $10. It’s a size 2!
