Behind-the-Scenes: H&M + Swedish Hasbeens Photoshoot!

Getting my face did.

Browsing the racks at the H&M showroom in Los Angeles for the pieces to style my two looks with.

The amazing Swedish Hasbeens designed in collaboration with H&M! They are too comfortable for words. I took the black pair home with me :)

Look what I found! This mustard skirt was basically made for me.

Art director Carl looking super dapper in a black hat.

It was love at first sight for me with this nude-toned knitted tank.

So many colors to choose from!

Waiting to get my makeup done with some coffee and a gorgeous view of Los Angeles.

Sarina the makeup artist is so beautiful! Love this girl!

Carl and art assistant Patrick scouting locations on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

Me crossing the street one of multiple times.

Modeling really is much harder than it looks!

Crossing those Beverly Hills streets was actually a piece of cake in my Swedish Hasbeens!

Derrick the photographer was so amazing and fun to work with. I couldn't stop laughing!

Natalie and I even got to fit in some sister-sister shots!

One last look at the H&M Showroom.

I know a lot of you have been curious about the H&M photo shoot that I took part in for H&M's collaboration with Swedish shoe brand Hasbeens, so here is a little behind-the-scenes sneak peek at what I was up to on the day of the shoot this past Wednesday! The morning started off with hair and makeup at the H&M Showroom in Los Angeles, where I was basically surrounded by some of the most gorgeous pieces for summer! There were so many bright pieces that caught my eye . . . perfect to showcase that colorful Los Angeles vibe that this shoot was aiming to capture. We shot my two looks on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and it was an absolute blast, even with all the funny bystanders and tourists ogling us all around. Derrick the photographer really made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I really cannot wait to see the end result of the shoot!

Thank you to Joakim, Derrick, Carl, Patrick, and Johanna (who I've been corresponding with over phone about this project) from Whispr Group and everyone at H&M for putting this all together and making it happen! It really was an experience I will never forget! And thank you to my sister Natalie for being there for support, and taking these lovely pictures!

I'll be adding these pictures and a ton more to the Color Me Nana Facebook page soon, so make sure to like it when you get the chance!

I will let you all know when the pictures from this shoot come out!

Ah, this is amazing! Can't wait to see the shoot.

I have a question though - I know Swedish Hasbeens are genuine leather, but are the H&M ones leather or synthetic?
