Test Shoot


I just wanted to share with you guys the result of a little Free People test shoot I styled a few weeks back. Our model for the day was Madeline, and this was her first ever photo shoot ever! Can you believe she's only 16? With this shoot, I was trying to bring to life my own vision of the Free People girl. I brought out her rocker side, her modern bohemian side, her quirky side, her preppy side, and her super romantic side. What do you guys think? I had so much fun working with the Free People photographer on this shoot, which we all did just for fun and to try out some new things! It was a total blast! My favorite look is the first one. It came together on a total whim and it literally rocked. So Alice Dellal.

Yo creo que la modelo esta demasiado delgada, y no es un buen ejemplo para las jovenes.

You are one HELL of a stylist! Everything is perfect, right down to the jewelry.

I love the leather-on-denim layering in the first look. I don't like how long the denim jacket is, but the entire outfit is a must-try! The boots in the second outfit is to die for, and the feminine-rocker edge is spot on! I could definitely seeing myself wear the third outfit though. Third has a great color palette, and the fourth...well, what's not to love about turbans?

Great post! The outfit are absolutely lovely.

Joy said...

She looks great, fab styling!
