What I Did This Summer: Birmingham Magazine Fall Photo Feature

Hi everyone, I have to start off by apologizing for the lack of posts lately.  I have been busy for the past few weeks working on a couple of writing and styling projects and I hope to get back on track with regular posts again soon.

Today I thought I would share with you the photos that I styled for the Birmingham Magazine’s fall feature.

We shot this at the end of July in a vacant store front in downtown Birmingham.  John Roe was the talented photographer, Jennifer Arnone the exceptional Art Director along Jennie Petrovic and Colleen Dwyer from 6 Birmingham Salon.  I also was very fortunate to have the help of Jenan Saab as my assistant.

Watch Out Male Models, There’s a New Coverboy in Town

In quite possibly his first fashion magazine cover and full fashion spread, faux Austrian fashion reporter Bruno, a.k.a. Sacha Baron Cohen, shows off his mad modeling skills in July’s UK edition of Marie Claire.

After distancing themselves first, Marie Claire reveals Bruno’s A-Z commentary on fashion:

H is for "High-vaisted Jeans", the fashionista said, explaining: "In terms of human tragedy on a mass scale, vy are zese not getting the attention zat Hurricane Katrina did?"

S is for "September 11th 2001": "Famous, of course, for being ze day on vich Oscar de la Renta reintroduced ze chambray peasant blouse."   [Telegraph]

You may remember in a previous post, Bruno crashed Milan Fashion Week by walking the runway in a velcro suit and was then later banned from returning to any other events.

Last week, the WSJ speculated “How does a major Hollywood studio promote a movie so raunchy and offensive that it initially got an NC-17 rating? By staying under the radar.”

After Sunday’s stunt at the MTV Awards where Bruno flew from the rafters in a winged thong, only to land facedown in the lap of rapper Eminem (who is also promoting a new album) and was face to face with the comedians bare buns; I’m not sure that Bruno is trying to stay under the radar. 

Now today it was reported, that he is being sued by a woman involved in a bingo melee that left her in a wheelchair two years ago while filming the movie. 

It will certainly be interesting to see the forthcoming stunts leading up to the July 10 release of the movie.

Until then, pick up an issue of Marie Claire to see what he had to say about Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Madonna and model Naomi Campbell.

Birmingham Magazine

Hi guys, awhile ago I mentioned that I had the opportunity to do some styling work for a local magazine here in Michigan.  Doing a photo shoot is a lot of work, but incredibly enjoyable.  Imagine how fun it would be to go to some of the best boutiques in the state and have your pick of the store.  At one boutique alone, I borrowed approximately $7,000 worth of merchandise.  If only it was mine to keep…

Birmingham Mag 6.09

The topic of my assignment was to style a summer swimsuit page.  I started with this beautiful teal colored asymmetrical bikini and was thrilled after shopping several stores, to finally find the perfect dress to be worn as a beach cover up.  What’s striking about the dress, is the flexibility in dressing it up or down; you could go straight from the pool to a nice restaurant without feeling self-conscious at all. 

You may not be able to see the type, but the silver sandals are Valentino and they were amazing.  Too bad this stylist doesn’t have the budget to pay the $675 to buy them…

Here is an alternate page that I styled for the magazine.  This pool side look includes a bikini that will definitely draw a second look with it’s trendy animal print and bold jeweled embellishments.

I was absolutely over-the-moon for these Lanvin sandals; falling in love with the pink bow.  I think these sandals may be a Tender (the name of the boutique) exclusive.  I looked everywhere online and could not find the exact same pair.  The price on these covetable catwalkers you ask?  $995. 

Brimingham Mag 2 pg

Thanks guys for letting me share!
