I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Jay Manuel himself. He is so warm, gracious and cheerful in person! I asked him for tips on how to look great in front of the camera. His answer was “ Be genuine with your emotions. If you want to smile, think of something happy. The most important aspect of your expression is in your eyes.” So there you go ladies! A picture perfect tip from the expert of America’s Next Top Model, himself.

For the rest of the day we were pampered with amazing beauty, hair, nail and makeup services. Jay Manuel Beauty experts provided makeovers and beauty consultations. We also got to sample some of the exquisite products from his make up line. A unique aspect of Jay Manuel Beauty is that it uses crushed diamonds, pearls and precious stones to nourish and make the skin glow! I also love how the packaging is so sleek and compact so it won’t take up too much space in your make up bag. There’s a diverse, dynamic range of colors and shades for your eyes, lips and face to suit your skin colour.

Mimi Tran Art Hearts Fashion

Vietnamese fashion designer Mimi Tran showcased her Fall Winter 2016 Optical Illusion collection at Art Hearts Fashion Week. Mimi Tran grew up in Paris and her Vietnamese heritage created a sophisticated influence of both east and west in her designs.

Her collection exuded elegance and Parisian chic while accentuating the female figure. I love her attention to detail as the dresses were exquisitely embellished with lace, sequins, beads and floral appliques to create beautiful patterns which is probably how the collection got its name.

Solid shades of royal blue, gold and the bright oriental floral motifs accentuated the primary color black, which is also the color that the French love to wear. Fine fur stoles and long leather gloves completed the look of  timeless glamour.

For the finale, Miss new York walked out in an understated yet elegant white lace wedding gown.

 

What are your favorite looks from the show? Let me know in the comments below.

Alice In Wonderland

 

13343039_10208382703897955_4906487254905544954_n

Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite fairy tales from my childhood. It still is a timeless classic for most people and it has also has been an inspiration to artists and designers alike . As the sequel to Tim Burton’s first movie, “Alice Through The Looking Glass,” is currently out, me and my team came up with a whimsical photo shoot inspired by the magical world of Wonderland.

We decided to go with a more modern and punk rock spin off the classic style. I’m wearing a short blue mini dress accented with a black tulle skirt and a pink floral fascinator. My hair was also sprayed with a bright pink hair dye. To pay homage to the White Rabbit and complete the outfit I’m wearing a pocket watch on a pearl necklace.

The Mad Hatter played by model Corey Petett, is wearing a suit with a purple shirt, a modern hat and a mix of quirky accessories pinned onto this jacket. He is an eclectic character after all who loves to pick up interesting things.

A fun fact for this photo shoot was it was shot in an abandoned mansion on top of a steep hill overgrown with vines and covered with moss. It actually used to be inhabited by royalty. We had to hike all the way up to the hill for this shoot! But it was worth it as it added a fairy tale like backdrop for the shoot.

I’d like to credit the amazing photographer Gladys Ng for her artistic direction and wonderful photography work! It was a such a  fun experience to work with a team of determined and gifted people!

 

Here are some outfits that are inspired by Alice in Wonderland and I must say, they are in a style that’s similar to the movie:

Effortless Street Style

13321974_10208352748589091_3147893951102567971_n 13394150_10208352748989101_5101024969633606762_n

 

The weather in New York can be unpredictable even during springtime, it could be warm  during the day and turn chilly within just a couple of hours. This look is great for transitioning from winter to spring and it also works for fall as you can play around with the different layers and textures. The neutral colors are universally flattering for anyone and blends into the spring and fall/winter palettes.

 

When I have to run around the city a lot to cover and photograph multiple events all day, I like to be comfortable and channel an effortless look. Sure, I wish I could look like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, but I don’t want to ruin fancy shoes on the streets or have my skirt trodden on when I’m taking pictures on the crowded risers. Living in New York has definitely influenced my style to be more edgy and practical.

Here I’ve layered a soft, mauve-grey sweater with a fawn-colored fur vest and a tan brown jacket. To complete the outfit, I paired it with dark blue skinny jeans and dark brown heeled boots. I like to keep my accessories simple too, with just a lariat necklace and aviator sunglasses.

I’d like to thank Joie for the luxuriantly soft “Andoni” fur vest and Kendra Scott for the elegant tasseled necklace. They are very chic and versatile accessories for everyone! Photo credits belong to New York City Fashion Photography by Andrew Reid.

Radmila Lolly is an exceptional opera singer who is my regular client and a great friend of mine. She is a classically trained opera singer  and has been singing since the age of 6.  She has decided to make her approach to her music career more contemporary by infusing her operatic singing style into pop and house music.

These are some of her shots from her music video shoot for her 2nd single “Hope,” a romantic ballad composed by Julian de la Chica. The style of the video is set in the 1940s and exudes Old Hollywood Glamour.

The stylist Laurean Ossorio did an incredible job putting together the outfits! The exquisite, intricately beaded gowns are designed by Dany Tabet and the elegant jewelry from Misahara . Luxurious furs added another air of  opulence from that golden era.

Elegant pinned-up waves, smoky eyes and red lips complemented the vintage fashion direction we were going for.

It was great working with such sweet and talented people. Our art director and videographer Rhonny Tufino did a phenomenal job directing the shoot and editing the video. With Radmila’s powerful voice, the poignant musical score and dramatic visuals, the music video is a rare gem that sets her apart from other artist.
