Hollyrod Foundation Design Care 2015 #StylistDiaries #20Models #Charity #AutismAwareness

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.

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.

Marie Bargas and Drea Johnson for helping me. Dressing models in dresses with 15-foot trains is no joke.

Taye Diggs as #Hedwig on Broadway

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!!

Kim Kardashian for Vogue Brazil Daily #VogueBrazil #KimKardashian #BlondAmbition

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-Kardashian-Vogue-1

Kim’s cover for Vogue Brazil shot by the tremendously talented Ellen Von Unwerth, speaks to me in classic volumes of simple beauty.

kim-Kardashian-Vogue-2

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.

kim-Kardashian-Vogue-4

Congratulations Ellen von Unwerth. Your talent shined in this editorial.

Oh and Kim looks nice too.

Mert &Marcus “Super Normal, Super Beauties” Spread in W Magazine #Supermodels #Raw #MertandMarcus #WMagazine #NSFW

Super Normal Super Models Wear The Best of Fall 2014 Fashion   W Magazine

I can’t disguise that I am a Mert & Marcus fan girl. Their work is stunning, and often beyond comparison. Although everyone on Twitter is raving about the new shot they did with, Madonna (think sexy sultry HOT), I’m over taken with a new, raw and gentler beauty portrayed in their  “Super Normal Super Beauties” editorial this September in W Magazine (also feat. on Models.com).

Kate Moss Denim - Super Normal Super Models Wear The Best of Fall 2014 Fashion   W Magazine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With Kate Moss leading the younger generation of runway, both male and female, the talent includes; Daria Werbowy, Mariacarla Boscono, Raquel Zimmermann, Saskia de Brauw, Lara Stone, Suvi Koponen, Meghan Collison, Anna Ewers, Mica Arganaraz,Daan van der Deen, Filip Hrivnak and Steve Milatos. Not hard to take a good picture when there is that much pretty in one room. Mert & Marcus take to simplicity showing a sexy, yet surprisingly ‘normal’ shoot.

Despite the unadorned models and the dressed down look (shout out to the wardrobe stylist Edward Enninful), Mert and Marcus bring forth an inner beauty proving these runway divas and men are ‘Super Normal’, and damn beautiful. Mert & Marcus 25 photos prove pure beauty is best in its true form, and trumps all. Including, any overdone editorial.

Enjoy the 25 images of Mert & Marcus (Including some not safe for work images) in the gallery below.

Lupita Nyong’o Devastates in New York Magazine #FashionIssue #Amazing #12yearsaSlave

Lupita Nyong’o is absolutely amazing. A classic actress waiting for her Oscar for her role in ’12 Years a Slave’, she is beautiful, talented and poised. At 30 she is a beacon in an industry that tosses and shut’s women down and kill’s careers at 20 something. Her role in ’12 Years a Slave’ brings about words like epic, emotionally raw and unbelievable. She is also and immigrant from Kenya. Lupita Nyong’o is a hell of a woman.

With her taste impeccable taste in clothing for award season, we have an all around fashion win for this bright star. This is why she has stolen the cover of the Spring Fashion Issue of New York Magazine. Wearing Stella McCartney Lupita Nyong’o stunned us with her natural beauty.

Miley Cyrus Topless in Vogue Germany #Miley #Again #MarioTestino

First it was the ‘Wrecking Ball’ naked video, then the twerking mess with poor Robin Thicke. We’ve seen Miley fall from grace, and head the way of slut like Lady Gaga with Terry Richardson’s ‘front thong’ pictures. However, there is hope!

Enter Mario Testino.

Mario Testino is a genius. Covering and photographing some of the most amazing artists, actors and supermodel’s in the world he is a constant beacon of artistic creation. In his photo set for Vogue Germany he has taken Miley ‘the tongue’ Cyrus and has transformed her into not only a lady, but icon Marilyn Monroe.

MileyVGcover1 MileyVGcover2

Although she did go topless for her shoot, Mario Testino made her look elegant and very much not like a 20 year old with something to prove. Mario Testino has certainly won this round with lil’ miss #Bangerz. Miley looks beautiful and elegant. She even looks happy without slutting it up and sticking out her tongue? Can we hope for more of this?

 

The saga of Cyrus continues with W Mag’s Topless shoot with the creative mind’s of Mert & Marcus.

In the meantime follow this link to see the topless picture of Cyrus;

Lana Del Rey’s Short Film ‘Tropico’ is Hot, Hot, Hot and #NSFW #LanaDelRey #ShaunRoss (Video)

Lana-Del-Rey-Tropico

Only the singing Goddess known as Lana Del Rey could bring together John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and half-naked Shaun Ross together in a short film. Tropico is an epic Adam & Eve-esque story riddled with religious iconography. And it…is….HOT.

Good Lord, watch!

Lana Del Rey is the sexiest Mary alive and frankly I can’t get enough of the radness the is Shaun Ross. Who is Shaun Ross exactly (because we know Lana and love her already).

Shaun Ross is quite the budding actor and he is a GORGEOUS, supermodel albino. Making him hot & weird. Just my type. (Dear Santa….want)

Holiday Gift Guide! Do Not Resuscitate! #DNRBrands #BadAss #AlternaGuide #WhatYouWANT

Around the holiday season, I get e-mailed product information and great ‘stuff’ for gift guides. Occasionally I’m interested. Sometimes, if it is really good, I’m hit with a retail whack attack. This is one of those times.

DNRflatlinelogo

Welcome to the awesomeness that is ‘DNR Brand’, or ‘Do Not Resuscitate’. The name alone get’s my inner grrr-girl going. It has enough bad ass product that it tickles my weird. I have an inner need to watch ‘Walking Dead’ and vampire movies about throat ripping beasts that don’t twinkle. This girl doesn’t just do Gaultier, she does gore.

Working both the yin and yang of lifestyle and fashion, I get to see some amazing art. This shirt, labeled ‘Cyborg West’, blew me away. No bad pun intended.

CYborgbordengun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously epic want.

With most companies, a t-shirt selections tries to prove their true worth in ‘horror a la Hell’s Angels’ style. So…you have some chick in a bikini with a gun on a tee. Boo yah yah, who cares?

At DNR they seem to understand that this is not just boring, but can be fixed. With this hot image called ‘Cyberlesque’.

Ha ha! Made you look. And you liked it.

I know that shirt’s can get bulky and some dude’s and chick’s don’t feel the clothing love. Often you may not know their size, and not everyone is a big fan of clothing.

For the discriminating friends and family in your life DNR Brands has a wide array of very cool, and original jewelry.

Damien Hirst x Alexander McQueen Scarf Collab. Beauty in Nature #New #Beautiful #MustHave

amq-hirst_1118x620-1

I make no excuses, nor will I ever lie about my total and complete dedication to the House of McQueen. There is virtually nothing in their collections I do not covet.

The house of McQueen just released a new scarf collection. The collection features a collaboration with iconic artist Damien Hirst. Hirst’s career reigned supreme in the UK in 90s and continues to impress, and be iconic, in the art scene.

The new collection features a nature theme with symmetrical designs in the classic McQueen skull motif. Add the effervescent talent of Sølve Sundsbø who shot the collection AND directed an editorial video for the scarves. He is by far one of the great’s in the industry who constantly produces amazing photography. I am impressed with Burton, of the House of McQueen, to tap such amazing talent.

With such beautiful representation, I am in complete submission, and awe, of this collection.

Backstage Exclusive; Tribal by Camille Wood at @Kenneth_Barlis Fashion show #San Diego #Couture

While most of you were partying, in the US, for Labor Day weekend, I was working.

Of course it’s hard to call it work when you travel in business class on the Pacific Surfliner to San Diego.I highly recommend taking it if you are in California. It is so choice.

View from the Surfliner to San Diego;

Then there is the fact it was to cover a fashion show. With a gorgeous room waiting for me. In the famous San Diego Gaslamp district. Walking distance from the pier.

My room at the Marriot;

20130830_155702

Ok, OK I have rubbed it in enough, let’s talk fashion.

Camille Wood is the daughter of a Vogue model and was raised in the dressing room, backstage and on set. Being surrounded by models, fashion, photographers and make up Camille was born into fashion. However we all have our disadvantages and being too short to walk the runway like her mom, she became a fashion designer.

Proving yourself when you are walking in your family’s footsteps is difficult, but Camille has managed to outshine her mother by creating over the top, couture swimsuits and now, her new clothing line Tribal.

I arrived at the Broadway Port Pavilion which is a massive building.

Broadway_Pier_t700

Inside the Kenneth Barlis fashion show was packed with flowing full length gowns, men decked out in suits and array of fine nibbles and beverages. I was very impressed.

With my VIP press pass I headed backstage to a HUGE area that contained multiple designers racks of clothing, make-up artists, hair stylists a food table for crew and more.

20130830_180154
I found Camille, who looked beyond beautiful in a white latex dress of her own design. She was busy prepping all the models but made time for everyone and every detail.

The ever radiant Camille Wood working with her model, Kelly Lenahan;

Even though it was hot, humid and took time to get everyone ready, all Camille’s models were in a great mood and full of smiles. We were in the very back of the building by the fresh air off the port of San Diego so the models were happy.

And the head dresses were out of this world.

She owned her head-dress. It made me want to buy it.

And at last Javone Henry and Diana Lieziert in full wardrobe and make up.

We decided since we had the very back area of the port pavilion to use it to our advantage. We grabbed all the runway boys and girls we could find and went outside for a photo shoot in the fresh air off the back of the port pavilion. The outfits look good under the spotlight but were dazzling in the sun.

And I got a selfie with my press pass;

20130830_184728

When we came back in it was time for the girls to line up. I caught a perfect moment of them being dazzled by sunlight.

20130830_185934

Then off to the front of the stage to catch the full show. When I walked out into the crowd I thanked Camille silently for my press pass. It was overly packed and the crowd spilled from the stage all the way into standing room only.

As the show began the first presenters came out wearing Kenneth Barlis couture gowns that were simply jaw dropping.

20130830_195010

Then the charity presenter for the event, which helped raise money for Books for Kids in the Philippines was amazing and her story was touching. She came out in a stunning gown as well.

20130830_195252

Poor girl was nervous but did an astounding job and made it through her speech.

The first show passed showing amazing ready to wear, that was very California casual. Cute jumpers, Jodhpur pants and leggings with clean designs and cute graph tee’s. Thigh high legging with high-waisted shorts and unisex pants. Super cute and very wearable.

When Camille’s line took the stage it was, overwhelming. Pounding tribal drum beats followed with two very handsome topless models with spears. Girls came out strutting the stage in skin baring outfits with goddess like head dresses. The final piece was a towering Diana Liezert in a backless netted latex dress with a live SNAKE wrapped around her waist! Beyond impressed.
Check out the full runway video I shot below;

I knew there was a reason Camille wanted me to cover this. Her ‘Tribal’ line literally coined the phrase ‘dress to impress’ that night for me. Turns out I wasn’t the only one who was enamored with her clothing that night. Turns out one of the models bought the top she wearing as well.

After seeing her swim line at LAFW and her Tribal line in San Diego, Camille Wood isn’t just one to watch anymore. She’s one to follow, wear and want.

What’s next for Camille? Check out the sounds byte below and get ready for a whole new wave of fashion from Camille Wood.

Huge thanks to Camille Wood for giving me a place to stay. Thanks to Camille Wood and Kenneth Barlis for backstage access. Lastly thanks to San Diego for having me.

Blurred Lines are Making Me Happy. #RobinThicke #Uncensored #HappyLaborday

Robin-Thicke

Since Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ has been following me everywhere this weekend, I just HAD TO share. This song not only kicks ass, but is a massive hit topping the charts and selling well over 11 million albums so far. Robin Thicke is the man in this butt shaking hit, but add Pharrell and you have just created a song so addictive I had to buy it.

Robin Thicke is the man, but he doubled that when he made this sick uncensored version. He quadrupled it when you realize the black hottie on the bike is his wifey. Damn, it hurts so good!

It’s VERY NSFW so don’t be playing this for your boss.

Enjoy!

Although Facebook is a plethora of evil status comments, bad fan pages (like mine http://www.facebook.com/HeathyrWolfe) and ridiculous e-cards of hate, sometimes it brings something so good it cancels out everything. What can conquer evil and bring sunshine to countries like the UK? THE MUPPETS!!
