Have you checked out the new Ponystep? Here is one of my fav shoots of the season that I worked on with Andreas Larsson, Ondine Azoulay, Halley Brisker. The twins in the image were so sweet and I really couldn’t tell them apart. The shoot was 2 glorious days spent in the sun in the Summer camped out on Andreas’s roof garden which was a bit of urban bliss. I kept the beauty really minimal almost nothing & it was a refreshing way to work and reminded me of my first shoots back in the day working on portraits for The Face, I.D, Dazed & of course Sleazenation. If you get a sec please see the new issue ’ cos its gorgeous & you must support independent magazines.http://ponystep.com/

We were shooting Vogue in Miami & Karolina Kurkova was washing the sand off herself after the shoot was over. I made use of the beautiful magic golden hour light that is just before the sun sets when everyone & everything looks so divine & took a quick spontaneous snap.

I am delighted to show you the new Ponystep cover that I worked on with the original Sugarbabes lineup now known as MKS which stands for Mutya Keisha Siobhan. The images are by photographer Catherine Servel this was styled by Joanna Schlenzka  hair by Karin Bigler  and nails by Adam Slee. I used all Chanel skin care and makeup. I wanted to keep the girls looking minimal and present them in a new and fresh way. I thought that they wouldn’t be up for it especially Mutya, who loves a mega full on lash, brow and everything else but they just told me to do my thing so I did and they loved it. I think the images are iconic and beautiful. It was a treat working with the girls who I adore and had the pleasure of hearing some of their new album which sounds incredible. Make sure you check it out.

Barbet Schroeder's 1969 film More is my perfect cult classic hippy film. I have been referencing it on shoots that I have been working on for for SS13 as it perfectly sums up the mood that I wish to convey for the beauty especially the lead actress Mimsy Farmer (what a name!) Pink Floyd did the entire soundtrack called Soundtrack From The Film More and apparently for a total cost of £600. See the trailer here. The poster simply had the title: more of sex, drugs and beauty. Does that interest you yet? Enjoy. 

Q: Why do hippies wave their arms around when they dance?
A: To keep the music out of their eyes.

I was recently introduced to the most amazing brand called Simply Divine Botanicals which mergers science with energy and love. I look hard to find new and interesting products that the glossies aren’t all writing about, try them out and share the knowledge. This brand has a first listing of: Unconditional Love & Gradtitude. SDB  was invented by herbalist and healer Barbara Rogers and she created products free from synthetic additives and 100% chemical free. All products are energised with Reiki. The brand is just incredible and I am obsessed with it all but particularly the  Creme de Rose for the face. This coming Spring/Summer 2013 according to the fashion gods and goddesses that be you are all going to be tuning in to your inner hippy and will be working the glamour, ecstasy, and Utopianism so you may as well pack a few of these love infused products with your caftan and shisha. Peace out. 

I just watched the tv film Liz & Dick. It is horrible but I still watched it. My favourite quote that I read about it is:  ’A Cheap Film About Hollywood’s Most Expensive Romance!’ I am convinced that Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are drowning their sorrows in heaven knowing that their life and relationship was mocked in this trashy way. You know you are going to watch it too.

I can’t help it. I want it, the bottle is great. I want to keep it in my hidden secret shoe box of guilty pleasure beauty products and take it out once in awhile and look at it and stroke her pink hair. I love it & my friend Greg thinks that it looks like a tranny C3PO. This perfume is called Pink Friday after Nicki Minaj’s first album and she says, “Pink Friday is a celebration of my life at this moment; it is a reflection of me as a creator, and an expression of me as a woman from the name, to the outrageous bottle design, to the vibrant colors that create their own song. Pink Friday shows off my personality and style; it’s exciting to express my voice through another dimension  that’s my way of composing perfection.” Generally I hate celeb perfume and feel a bit celebrity shmelebrity except for Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds, naturally, but might need to get this. For all those hardcore people out there who don’t even care what it smells like or what’s in it, just click and buy here on ebay.

New Work: Flair magazine cover & main fashion with supermodel Malgosia Bela Photographed by Katja Rahlwes Fashion Editor: Sissy Vian Hair: Franco Gobbi, Manicure: Cristina Conrad and I did the makeup using all MAC Cosmetics. We shot this in a fabulous house that was like a perfect 1970’s time capsule in decor. I wanted to keep the beauty very simple and worked with products to create a gorgeous dewy skin texture so I began with a facial using the care blend oils and then a light base of face & body mixed with lustre drops & strobe cream. I curled lashes and added my favourite MAC mascara which is the new Haute and Naughty lash in black and then I added lip balm and either Glamour Daze lipstick in Innocence a natural sheer peach and for the cover I used cherry pencil to draw the lip shape and fill in the entire lip with Lady Danger lipstick an orange/red on the lips pushed on with my fingers. I also added extra mascara to make the cover even more luxe and inviting. The beauty is sheer and light and hardly there except for a little pop of colour on the lips. Malgosia is a dream to makeup as she is so beautiful and such a cool woman, she really reminds me of a young Michelle Pfeiffer.
