Paula Patrice Photographed By Adriana Curcio 2014

I had a photoshoot with a fabulous team recently and they turned my Joe Dirt-style mullet into Calvin Klein circa 1980s. I love this classicly styled portrait. 

Details, as always, are shared on my Facebook along with a few Ziggy Stardust jokes.

 Warby Parker Glasses

In the past it’s been easier to get a mail order bride than mail order glasses. That’s changed with eyeglass designer Warby Parker’s Home Try-On program.

My friend Jeff messaged me today asking for advice on what glasses shape would be best for his face, and I told him “ask the people who are only too happy to insult you – your friends.” Friends give the best input on what looks good, but that means you need the glasses in-hand. 

Warby Parker crafts modern-but-not-too-trendy eyewear (just saying you have Warby Parkers will make you appear hip) priced around $100 per prescription pair. They also have non-prescript and sunglasses.

And for every pair sold they give a pair to someone in need. It’s a charity 2-fer and that’s the best part of all!

HOME TRY-ONS:  5 Pairs, 5 Days, 100% Free  >>
They’ll send you up to 5 pairs of glasses to try on at home for 5 days free, and include a pre-paid return shipping label to send them back with no obligation to buy. Easy peasy!

We’re starting to see some photos from the new Steven Meisel for Louis Vuitton campaign in the UK Vogue & Harpers August issues, and in Vanity Fair and W Mag in the USA. Stay tuned… 

 

So cute! They also have buck teeth pacifiers, mustaches… I’ve never seen these before but I’ll be buying them as gifts!
two door cinema club this is the life
Vibin’ this new song by Two Door Cinema Club. Actually, the entire album rocks. They’re coming to Hammerstein Ballroom NYC in concert this Fall. I’m so there!
I have my eye on this outfit for the Fall. Also, I want this model’s hair
the paper bag princess
This book is a celebration of feisty females everywhere! Canadian author Robert Munsch has created  a smart, empowered Princess whose Prince Charming is snatched away by a dragon as they’re about to marry. With her clothes burned by his fiery breath, she dons a fashionable paper bag and races off to save her prince- who promptly criticizes her appearance. Pfffft Setting an example for fearless females, our heroine outsmarts the dragon, dumps the self-involved prince and lives happily ever after in all her Fierceness.  A great lesson geared towards children ages 4-8 years, and a great self-confidence refresher for women ages 14-48!!! Get The Paper Bag Princess here, and read the positive reviews for 1000 more reasons why you need to buy it.
Ashleigh Good Ford Comp Card
Born in England, raised in New Zealand, with an International career that is on fire, Ashleigh Good booked the 2012 Givenchy show in Paris within mere weeks of being discovered by Ford Models. She’s on every Hot List in 2013, walking for Valentino, Armani Prive Haute Couture, Dior, Chanel… and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel F/W13 ad campaign. Yet, by all accounts, this girl is completely grounded.
Favorite model of all time: Me. If you weren’t modeling, what would be your dream job? A farmer’s wife. – Ashleigh Good in Vogue Magazine
From her interview in NY Magazine where she states her favorite pastime is fishing (then gutting and eating the fish on the spot, yuck!) to her self-described “easy, peasy, lemon squeezy” style, I am loving the candid good-nature vibe that Ashleigh rocks along with a fresh-faced classically-featured look. Ashleigh Good’s Ford Models page is here and a quick Vogue Daily profile is here.
 Be a naturally blushed model using blushing bride cheek stain by Tarte. Perfect for the Model Kit!  

Paula Patrice Model With Tim Gunn Project Runway

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!

Check out the final TV spots that aired here.
