See all photos of this outfit on my blog!
Like I told you, I really, really loved the Gossip Girl inspired outfit I wore Saturday. Everything just worked. But this one… not so much. Or, that’s not entirely true: I did like it, a lot – but it just didn’t look good in any of the photos. The make up looks weird, the leather jacket feels completely out of place… Plus, I look tired and, I don’t know, lazy.
Actually, this happens to me quite often – that something looks fabulous in the mirror, but not through my camera lense. I guess that just proves what a challenging job stylists and make up artists truly have! It’s like they need the ability to turn their eyes into a camera lense, imagining the lighting and how it will hit the face or the clothes and body angles.
Anyone who thinks being a stylist is just about taking a bunch of trendy items and throwing them over a model – or, worse, who thinks being a make up artist is easy just because she can do her own make up – has clearly never tried, and failed, to take a great set of outfit photos!
Well well, noone’s on top of their game all of the time. Or maybe they are, what do I know. All I know is that I’m not. And that’s okay.
