Here are a few of my favorite photos from a recent "Ralph Lauren Style" photo shoot I worked on.
Photographer: Rupert Yen
Stylist: Lisa Byrd Thomas
Makeup/Hair: Leslie Milne
Model: Sarah B./DGA
The plaid maxi skirt, ruffled blouse, and cropped pants are available for purchase at my online vintage clothing shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/hipfashionstylist The vests are not vintage, but are also for sale...just contact me.
Three ties from my online vintage shop were in the recent National Geographic Movie "Killing Kennedy." Two appeared on Rob Lowe as JFK and one was on an FBI agent as he interrogated Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar). Amy Harrell, Costume Designer, did a fantastic job with the wardrobe for the movie.
The above photo is from the upcoming National Geographic TV movie "Killing Kennedy" which airs in November. The fabulous tie on Rob Lowe as John F. Kennedy is from my online vintage clothing boutique, Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage. I'm anxious to seeing if any of the other three ties they purchased made the cut. (That's Ginnifer Goodwin as Jackie.)
I'll be working this week in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry House with the Crossroads Celebrity Concert. If you are in Nashville, come see it!
Crossroads Celebrity Concert: Broadway star Tom Wopat (Luke Duke, Duke's of Hazard), Country Legend Irlene Mandrell, Metropolitan Opera's Kallen Esperian join producer Martha Wright, Rick Gabrillo, members of the Nashville Symphony and the fabulous Crossroads Children's Chorus for a night at the Grand Ole Opry House.
Recently I had an opportunity to style a photo shoot for a Money Magazine article called "Changing His Focus." The subject, Roger Cicala, was a former anesthesiologist who now owns a highly profitable camera lens rental company, LensRentals.com. It's a great success story so check out the article in the July 2013 issue of Money Magazine. Photos by Gregory Miller, styling by Lisa Byrd Thomas, and grooming by Leslie Milne.
I spotted a few more Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage wardrobe items on the CBS TV series "Vegas" in last week's episode, Past Lives. There was a lovely pair of white gloves with lace and seed pearls that was worn by a bride-to-be whose groom was arrested. Then there was a camel colored handbag carried by a meek casino housekeeping employee who turns out to be more dangerous than she looks. Let's hope the show is renewed for next season (and that the costume designer will continue to shop at Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage!)
One of my favorite TV shows is "Once Upon A Time." Eduardo Castro is the creative genius behind the fabulous costumes. He recently won a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Costume Designers Guild. Definitely deserved!! Here are a few outfits from the show. There are so many favorites to choose from, I couldn't post them all. And I couldn't find photos of some of the ones I've liked the best.
Note the green screen!
I recently found this awesome bridesmaid dress from the 1980's that has somewhat of a fairy tale look to it, don't you think? It is for sale in my online vintage boutique, Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage.
It's always exciting to see items from your boutique used on a tv show, especially when they are worn by a main character. The costume designer for the CBS series "Vegas" has purchased a number of vintage items from my shop. This past week, one of my 60's ties was worn by Michael Chiklis' character (Vincent Savino) in the opening scene of the episode "Little Fish." You can view it at: http://www.cbs.com/shows/vegas/video/
Here are a few screencaps and photos of the tie.
I fell in love with this fabulous tie when I found it and just couldn't wait to get it listed in the shop. I thought to myself, "This would be perfect for Vincent Savino!" What are the chances he would actually end up wearing it?
OK, so how come almost every photo taken of me working, shows me from the backside...it's not my best feature! Here's some examples of what I mean.
Over the Shoulder Shot
Side View...That's Better!!
Finally!!! I REALLY don't like having my photo taken, but thanks Melanie!
A FUNNY STORY - One day while shooting, I asked the photographer for time to fix the model's dress. I stepped onto the set and the photographer immediately proceeded to shoot again. When I asked why, he said the photos were for his wife...to prove he wasn't all alone with the gorgeous model!
