Still waiting for you to connect with me on Facebook. Let’s be random friends
Many people know me from way back, when I was blondish. Not entirely blonde, just enough to soften my hard edges (whether they were real or imagined).
After my short brunette pixie look caught on my modeling agency was against any changes, with good reason. I was working photoshoots every day, recognized by big brands, casting directors and photographers. A model works years to build a portfolio around a particular look and there’s a point where we need to ride the wave.
I was fortunate in my first career, but it’s time change it up, and now my passion for technology has allowed me a second successful career… Which means I get to look any way I darn well please!
Goodbye Quirky Pixie… Helloooo Empowered Blondie!
Models work hard to perfect their camera gaze. Photographers often instruct “Give me more.” But what’s more to give?
Tyra Banks coined the phrase “smizing”, when a model smiles with their eyes. Here’s a quick tutorial; now grab a mirror and start practicing.
On today’s “what is this world coming to” list is the new cosmetic procedure implanting shiny jewelry into the eyeball. C’monnn, really??
This only goes to prove that if you’re willing to pay, there’s a doctor on Park Avenue willing to oblige. Until someone loses and eyeball and sues. And we wonder why medical malpractice insurance is so high?
Want something permanent that’s painful to remove? Get a tattoo. Leave your eyeballs au naturale. Your mother will thank you.
When you think about the facts, the small fish eat the plastic > the big fish eat the small fish > the humans eat the big fish.
The food chain adds up to plastic in our bellies.
Know what’s made of plastic? Poopie diapers!
Ewww so gross!
Look at this infographic proving you’re eating your own trash. Recycling is a hassle but it is sooo important.
Milo & I were playing ball on this beautiful Fall Sunday when we heard the terrible sound of a car crash as it drove up the street that splits the school park from the playground. A dog owner began frantically running towards the street yelling for her dog. On instinct, her golden labrador struggled to roll to its feet and get out of the road, getting one good limp in before collapsing on the grassy curb. He’d been hit.
As I write this I cry. That poor, beautiful animal. Humans were to blame.
He hadn’t done anything wrong. He was excited to be out on a sunny day with his sibling; they were two golden labs, maybe three or four years old. They didn’t know the park bordered a street that was preceded by a blind curve. They couldn’t leash themselves. A dog’s instinct is to … Keep Reading »
In “The Devil Wears Prada“, one of my favorite movie scenes ever gives truthful insight into the “creative flow” of trends. It’s harsh, but true.
Ummm what’s wrong with Casual Corner? HA
There’s an unspoken-about gap between high fashion and consumer fashion, as if high fashion wants to pretend that it could exist without consumerism, but it couldn’t, at least not in the economic materialism sense. There is no superior value to a $4000 limited-edition designer coat than a $300 private-label department store coat, provided both are made of quality materials that will keep the wearer warm.
The material value is set by our individual values: softness, uniqueness in the market, innovation of design. The more unique an item is, the less it will sell to the masses, which means a designer needs to mark up the price to maintain a high profit margin and stay in business, since they won’t be selling high volume. The craftsmanship of these garments meets the standards of certain consumers’ values, thereby validating the price, at least in their minds. They want to acquire something people don’t have yet and they’re willing to pay for that item that “controls” the market.
The trickle down effect is that the unique item, now quantified by sales in the marketplace, will be copied, though in a generic style, to be sold to the masses. And therein lies the symbiosis.

So artsy. I totally need those Chanel bowtie wrist cuffs!
When we consume GMO foods, we are ingesting a food that was inserted with a gene that caused massive mutations in the plant’s DNA. That same gene may transfer to our cells…Alessandra Gil explains it best. Read on >>
I find this editorial to be brilliantly conceived and flawlessly executed. Working with Steven Meisel was an honor; I love that he allowed me to be myself without trying to “cool me up” and I am proud to have a role in the creation of his art.
Re: The Casting:
I think Steven again makes a statement. Watching Joan Rivers on QVC, she overshadows her guests, the models and the merchandise. It’s the Joan Show and the customers call … Keep Reading »
The past few days I’ve been shooting a TV commercial with Tim Gunn.
The spot is for Tide, the sponsor of Project Runway amongst other shows, and I am honored to be working in such fabulous company! It’s fun “playing” a model.
Tim is absolutely the nicest, most professional, humble, intelligent, witty man ever! Even more so than he appears on TV, if that’s possible.
One would expect him to pull the full Divo treatment with separate dressing room, a rider a mile long and whatever else these divas all ask for… but nope, he was right there in the makeup chair next to me sharing his space and his thoughts. I can see why he’s made it so far in the fashion and media worlds. He gets the job done and treats the crew with respect. Inspirational!
Make it work people… and stay humble!
