Beauty Embodied

This is an inspiration post highlighting the kind of style that appeals to me when it comes to working with other models. I'm not really into grunge and I'm hoping that one day I'll have the opportunity to shoot high end designers whose clothes are designed for women who are powerful, elegant, confident, sexy, demure, effortless. I love feminine silhouettes and intense expression, strong body language. My favourite editorials are those that tell a story about the kind of woman wearing the clothes. The mood is very important and its usually the difference between an experienced model and a new girl.

Hey Wrangler

Pretty delighted to receive these jeans from the very generous team at Wrangler because they are the perfect addition to my warm and slouchy winter wardrobe. I think I'm never going to get tired of dressing this way.  Menstyle + clogs.
Here's few of my favourite pieces from the latest Wrangler lookbook, I loved the cropped jeans, the perfect thing to wear with ballerina flats, a buttoned up cardi or little cable knit jumper - and maybe a little bunny ear style headband like the one I'm wearing in this outfit post from American Apparel. Cute!
Also time to invest in some short shorts for summer... My legs are pretty fluorescent right now, might hit up the gradual tanning lotion before I start sporting any of these sassy puppies.
I love denim.

So here's a quick post featuring some of my favourite pieces from the new Stylestalker collection online now, postage is cheap right now so it's the perfect excuse to get something fresh to tide you over for the remainder of summer - or in preparation for summer depending on your hemisphere. I'm actually working on an outfit post right now believe it or not. It's been hard to blog in winter, its always dark and raining.

New Work

Pretty extensive test I shot yesterday with the incredibly beautiful Alyce Crawford (Priscillas) and the exceptionally talented Anni Hall (check her website and blog!). Alyce's look reminds me a little of actress Robin Wright and Ali Stephens, she's got some great angles. I did the styling, I'm very grateful to be lent some of the State of Georgia collection by the girls at Wonderland and of course plenty of Stylestalker from their current collection. Its a bit difficult to get a cohesive idea from just two collections, there's quite a bit of my own clothes in there too.
Really need to get into using artificial lighting because these cloudy winter days are just so unreliable. We were shooting for three hours yesterday and the light was just so varied, the last half hour was glorious so those images are stronger than the rest. I also trialled my new 28mm lens which was fun.
Thanks so much to both of the girls for putting in such a fantastic effort!!

How do these days slip away from me? I've been so useless at keeping my blog updated lately - still I must confess its been more than blissful to be ignorant of it for a week or so. I've been pretty busy with various projects, modelling work, family events, life.
Currently making plans to link my blog to a new website, featuring my photographic work (and some photoshoots never before seen) so stick around for that, I'm really excited about it!
I love love love this skirt from American Apparel, so delightfully 'swishy' and great fun to wear. Very current hue that goes with most things particularly Susie's shearling coat which I may need to hijack for the remainder of winter.

Thanks so much to the extremely talented Kelly Smith for re-creating one of my photos of Vanessa Breuer, such the ultimate form of flattery. I've been hoping this day would come! Here's to hoping we see one of her elegant and impeccable illustrations on a major cover very very soon.

Green Forever

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

The inescapably cold weather in Sydney is leaving me feeling pretty uninspired on the fashion-front. Pea green on mint green is the most creative idea I could come up with.  This men's denim jacket isn't quite the right shape but its heavy and warm.
Clogs again, love.
I had my roots retouched courtesy of Wildlife again - I always walk out of that place feeling like a new person.

Easy Way

When the weather is cold the only way I want to dress is down. In tracksuit pants and boots and the cosiest of jumpers.. this Estrella knit has been getting a a real workout - paired with skirt to give it a little bit of femininity.  I have new Funkis clogs! Also very warm and comfortable.
