What do we love? Chanel. Who else do we love? Glass Magazine. Why?
Recently I have been making friends with the people over at Glass Magazine. By friends, I actually mean Facebook and Instagram friends. This of course will be remedied by me being awesome in their proximity and vice versa. Life goals people.
I’m especially enjoying the work of the Stylist, who works with Glass regularly, Katie Felstead. She is genius and makes everything from modern, edginess too romantic styles look brilliant. You know I don’t give accolades to other Stylist’s unless they are balls out amazing.
Back to this amazing editorial. Chanel is one of those amazing labels that every country understands. Say Chanel anywhere in the world (except maybe the deep amazon, though maybe there too) and it’s recognized as a brand with integrity, quality that costs big bucks.
Glass Magazine produced a wonderful Chanel editorial shoot that’s soft, beautiful and sexy. Giving us the sense of a gentle and delicate Chanel woman.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

I like to see diversity in fashion. More than anything, I like to see expressive artist/designers bringing a little crazy. This months ‘Josephine’ editorial is just that. It’s it’s got a whole lotta va-va-voom and some serious, cha-cha.
My favorite part? FIERCE COLOR!!! It’s summer and we all want to bring the color out of the closet, and get inspired. This vivid imagery and emotion made me feel THAT INTENSITY. I must say, this is the beginning of a love affair. A love affair with Vogue Brasil.
Hooray it’s summer! That means fabulous clothes, tons of sun and fabulous editorials. I was thing of something very ‘artistique’, but then I realized not all editorials need to be have to be mind blowing, sometimes you just want to have something simple, and gorgeous.
With that I give a sexy, fun, frolicking editorial from are friends over at Wildfox.
Known for their flirty, simple style Wildfox has always been a West Coast favorite. Their dresses in this editorial are light and flowery, their shirts make me want to wear them. In other words a wardrobe must have. They are my summer clothing staple, and I must have the entire collection. Excuse me while go shopping….
Here’s Lauren de Graaf giving us full on Wildfox girl!
I LOVE this girl. Lindsey Wixson is not only one hell of a model, but a fighter for justice and the earth.
She’s also a current muse of Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel in case you’ve been sleeping) and is not only a great editorial model, but really tall, and rocks the runways. She’s infamous for her cute little tooth gap in the front and her ‘bee-stung lips’.
Now that I’ve given you her accolades, how about I give you the editorial? I loves Gilles Bensimon’s work. Truly, he’s a genius. Here he captures Lindsay in her favorite environment, nature.
One of the reasons I love foreign shoots is they often bring the classics back. The sexy 1960s with a James Bond look. Italy, France and now Russia. This shoot for Vogue Russia, June 2017 is full of the classic shots we love. Women with over-sized dog on beach. The implied nude shadow photo. All classic swimsuit goodness for summer, but with a vintage feel. And it’s sexy as all damn hell.
I know, I know I have been gone for a long time my dear kittens, but I’m back. Its been a trial by fire. Luckily I made it out alive and kicking and I’m here to give you fashion news, trends and my latest acquisitions!
So….what does everyone want to hear about? Suggestions are always welcome.
I’ve ditched all my vices these days in favor of becoming an adrenaline junkie. There is nothing more exhilarating in my life than being thrown into an extreme situation. I live for it. That’swhy when I get offered a 20 model fashion show, I can NEVER say no.
When I was asked to help out with the amazing yearly Hollyrod Foundation Designcare 2015 event to tap a quality designer I said yes. In the past they have worked with fashion superstars such as Naem Khan and Emmauel Ungaro. Finding a fit in Los Angeles would be difficult but not impossible. I have great connections, and know even better designers. I tapped the stunningly talented Adolfo Sanchez and within 24 hours he and the amazing , Holly Peete Robinson and Hollyrod Foundation were working together.

Once you commit and find someone that is high caliber to a charity event this size things get out of control. First you get the designer, than you get tapped to help, than you are the Key Stylist for 20 models, in 20 looks with two personal assistants. The models were gorgeous, the dresses were beautiful, and made me remember why I got in this business 8+ years ago, and the cause was worth working for.
Backstage was small but we managed to get all the girls in their dresses and looking stunning. All the headpieces, crowns, etc were provided by the lovely Fiori Couture. She makes the most magical fantasy pieces of couture you have ever seen.

Chaz Dean Studio provided Hair and make up s our girls looked professionaly made over. Backstage was cramped but we managed to get everyone in their dresses, head dresses with matching accessories.
This is backstage;
We even had fresh flowers thanks to @VSanchezFlowers from Orange county.
Believe it or not this hot mess turns into the most beautiful, and well coordinated show you have ever seen. This is what we managed.
Overall this was a fantastic event to be part of. I got to be head/Key Stylist, had amazing assistants and co-workers .
HUGE thanks to Traci May Wagner for taking over backstage, she is an OG industry professional who works around the world and I was lucky to have her.
Check out May Wagner PR
Marie Bargas and Drea Johnson for helping me. Dressing models in dresses with 15-foot trains is no joke.

Special thanks to the Hollyrod Foundation for including me in their event. They are amazingly professional, and they are doing their part to help educate families and children with Autism and give them the tools they need to to be strong, and overcome adversity and learning disability.

Hedwig and the Angry Itch is one of my all time top 10 movies I love, adore and sing along to like a truly skilled shower singer. This means I have a crap voice but LOVE everything to do with this movie so I will make you suffer anyway. This also means if you haven’t watched it, straight or part of our lovely LGBT community, you should.
It in fact is so good it has become a sold out show on Broadway. Even more amazing is the new lead Hedwig is our favorite, delicious piece of supermodel chocolate, Taye Diggs. And he’s owning it.
Her is the first press photo of Taye rocking the transvestite, with the angry inch, Hedwig.
Work that ruby glitter Taye! We’re rooting for you to own this production!!
It’s summer and it’s time to beat the heat inside with some gorgeous video of pretty people. Today my gorgeous model of the moment is Shaun D Ross. Everyone knows his face from videos with superstars like Beyonce and Katy Perry, an of course, the runway. He’s everywhere. However it’s always smart to familiarize yourself and out a name to a face. Courtesy of KLOSS Films and Models.com we have our local Angeleno alien, Shaun, working the editorial again, this time in DTLA looking chic in these vignettes;
KLOSS FILMS SHOOTS A FIVE-PART SERIES CAPTURING SPONTANEOUS VIGNETTES OF SOME OF THE MOST IN DEMAND MODELS OF NOW.
The last week have been a whirlwind. I recently got back from a relaxing and enjoyable month-long vacation in the California Redwoods.
Look, city folk this is what trees look like…
Apparently it was too relaxing because the second I headed back to LA I got double booked on some amazing shoots.
The first was for a longtime acquaintance in LA who is tiny, cute and beyond fit, model and performer Elizabeth Deo. She’s not only a professional but an absolute delight. All the photos are heading straight to the sexy and scintillating ‘Manic Magazine’.
It was a crushing 102F but thankfully all Elizabeth is a complete professional and only required lingerie.
Two days later I was back at it again with my absolute favorite client Eugenia Kuzmina.
Eugenia has been a runway and print model for tons of amazing clients, such as;
In her early 20’s she transitioned into acting and has most recently been in ‘Fury’ with Brad Pitt.
It’s not hard to see why I love this woman, She’s tall, gorgeous, leggy, talented and, a supermom. Her most recent photography project is creating a coffee table book I have been lucky enough to work on with her as a Art Director and Key Stylist. It’s all about being a supermodel/supermom.
We had an amazing shoot day and got the kids wired on sugar. A perfect combo for amazing shots.Here are some of the behind the scenes photos
I want to thank my kick ass crews that made it possible, my sexy ass models Elizabeth Deo and Eugenia Kuzmina, and look forward to working with you all again!
What’s next for this little wardrobe stylista? A shoot for Powder Room Magazine. Everyday is a runway kittens, make today yours!
Keep checking back for new blog posts and updates.
I am tired of a world where we are forcibly immersed in the world of the Kardashians. It’s boring and plastic and full of shameless selfies, and photo-shopped body parts. However every once in a while a photographer actually comes along and makes Kim look beautiful. Classic even. Which is what Vogue Brazil and Ellen Von Unwerth did in these shots of her.
Kim’s cover for Vogue Brazil shot by the tremendously talented Ellen Von Unwerth, speaks to me in classic volumes of simple beauty.
Reminiscent of the 70s, these photos are shot in more natural light then studio HMI’s (both were necessary), in such a way that Kim looks almost passable as a model, and less like a plasticine princess. Ellen cast her in a light that creates her looking like a late Monroe and 70’s pin-up porn girl. Simple elegance mixed with a dash of homegrown smut.
Congratulations Ellen von Unwerth. Your talent shined in this editorial.
Reason 2 million I love LA. Our local weirdos. Dennis Woodruff, Angelyne and a newer local favorite, Richie the Barber!
Part barber, part strange anomaly and all sorts of cool clown, Richie the Barber is a great guy and even better hair stylist. Or so I’ve heard. Talent and a love for all things clown and hair, makes Richie ok in my book. However being the ultra clean, I want all white in my dressing room diva, Jennifer Lopez is, she is not such a fan.
Jenny from the really expensive, diamond encrusted block, got sprinkled with a nice glitter bomb by Richie while leaving LAX. Richie apparently did the same to Khloe and Kourtney Kar-trashian in 2014.
I’m all for attacking celebu-trash with glitter, but I kind of like the Lopez. Next time try a little confetti Richie. I am sure there will be less cursing and name calling.
PS to TMZ – calling Richie and idiot is beyond kettle calling pot black. You guys are scum of the earth. He at least is a freaky but nice, and having fun.
Oh yes! Hello my sexy kittens. With my fabulous birthday passing (May 24th) I decided it was time for a long overdue update to my site. What you see here is a new format with fabulous, easy to ready fonts, pages, my styling port and more. I will be constantly undergoing construction because I am a total nerd girl and love updating techy things.
Soon there will be more media, videos, photos and blog posts than you can shake your iPhone at.
Much love and feedback is always welcome, though rarely taken seriously.
I want to declare my mad love for Iggy Azalea right now. Up to a point. This is that point.
, Los Angeles, CA – 04/9/2015 – Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea film a Music Video -PHOTO by: Vince Flores/startraksphoto.com
Welcome to the fabulous new release by mostly Britney Spears with a dash of Iggy Azalea to push it into the Top 40 billboard hits. It’s called ‘Pretty Girls’ because really it’s all you hear during this god awful mess. It tried to be some 80s-ish redux of ‘Earth Girls are Easy’ mixed with basic 80s trash style, and turned into a straight train wreck of idiocy. Britney is repetitive more than usual and the itsy-bitsy Iggy part of her rapping is barely hearable. Overall, bad, bad, FAIL.
I know I am scathing and harsh when it comes to stuff like this so I will let you gauge for yourself, how, erm, interesting this video is. Good luck and try not to drop your jaw in disbelief too hard.
Call it a case of fashion imitating art in the worst way possible. Yesterday artist KESH found out that Versace had been plagiarizing her shirt/art, and selling it for bank to millions at high-priced Selfride’s for an over-priced $650. Turns out it’s a rip-off of an incredibly famous shirt by local L.A. artist KESH that was a collaboration in 2013 that retailed for $50.
KESH X American Apparel 2013 on left, Versace ‘Medusa’ on right.
KESH had created a line with American Apparel in 2013. Internationally renowned for her collection with American Apparel in 2013, KESH went on tour for her collection with American Apparel, the line that sold out in a matter of weeks, and was a celebrity favorite.
According to publicist Sydney Reising;
The collection was extremely well received and sold out almost instantly as a result of the support ranging from models such as Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn (both were frequently seen in multiple pieces from the collaboration), to musicians like Jessie J and Wiz Khalifa, and K-POP stars 2NE1 and G-Dragon
The capsule was sold in American Apparel flagship stores around the world, from Tokyo to Berlin to New York. The artist traveled the globe to celebrate in stores worldwide with fans as the collection debuted.
This looks like a slam dunk case for artist KESH. Not only are the similarities in product plagiarism but the original AA x KESH Tee was photographed all over the internet by celebrities wearing it. Celebrities are even coming out in favor of the KESH line by instagramming themselves in the famous shirt.
Look’s like not only is the house of Versace looking at a lawsuit. Artist KESH is just devastated. KESH spoke with New York Magazine’s The Cut earlier today:
“I have always had a deep admiration for Versace. It’s an iconic brand that has stood the test of time. I am deeply disappointed in this. This is not only artwork from a show that took me two years to develop and create. It is not only artwork from a collection that I created for American Apparel to provide something affordable and accessible to supporters of my work. But this is also my face! I can’t understand how something like this could happen.”
Over here at HeathyrWolfe.com we support artists of all kinds but never support liars and cheaters. The house of Versace is fabulous, they don’t need to be stealing from hard-working artists. Why not just hire KESH? KESH is well-known for her work and has been featured in publications including; Elle, Cool Hunting, Vogue, i-D, LA Weekly, and WAD. The artist is known for her loyal fan base that includes Kayne West, Theophilus London, Jeremy Scott, Cara Delevingne, Azealia Banks and Prince.
I’m proud to say this is not slowing KESH down. She’s working on products that include not just visuals but music incorporate as well.
