Recently I had the honor of shooting for Originel Magazine, a cool Turkey-based fashion publication. It was a particularly fun photo shoot, as I was the stylist and creative director – something I don’t always get to do on most fashion shoots in addition to being the model!
We decided on an LA glam-inspired theme with old Hollywood vibes, and I had just recently seen La La Land – so naturally I just had to shoot at the Griffith Observatory. It was fun finding different backdrops all over LA to capture these images, and reinforced my love for this inspiring, motivating, amazing city. As far as styling, I went for bold, retro inspired pieces – lots of volume, texture, and plenty of glam. How fun are each of these looks? I always love when I have the opportunity to get creative with styling.
For beauty and hair, I went for simple and sleek, to go well with each of my looks. For one of the looks, we even painted glitter on my lips for a very editorial glamorous look (more coming to the blog on that soon!).
Take a look at the full shoot, and let me know what you think in the comments! I can’t wait to hear what you guys think. I’ll be posting more photos from the spread soon. xx
