The countdown has begun to Mon Petit Chou Chou's Improper Bostonian debut! As initially posted here, MPCC will be featured in the Style Profile feature set to run in the Fall/Arts edition of the magazine released this week.
The editor for the feature, (the lovely) Amanda Knoor, initially asked me to pull together 4-5 looks for the shoot. Above, are two of my faves from the test photos with husband pre-shoot. Post outfit run with husband I felt sure what my choices would be....until I got the warning to avoid black. No black? Absolute insanity!! My poor Alexander Wang dress and Top Shop romper were left by the wayside. After shedding a few tears for them I went back to my closet and drawing board for some more colorful choices. If they wanted color, color they would absolutely get!
As soon as I was asked to come in for the shoot I made a 911 call to my #1 stylist at Anita Kurl, Cory, to fix my bangs. I have him to thank for all the complements I have been getting lately on my choppy fringe. I pinkie swear, no more home haircuts for me! The lovely Danielle at the Saks Chanel counter also came to my rescue and whipped up a delightful smokey eye. I am smokey eye illiterate and she is the ultimate master of the shadows, deftly wielding her palette and brushes. Below are some shots of the prep.It takes an army and I have some spectacular people enlisted!! Once I was cut, styled, painted, and primped, I was able to face the shoot full on. Stay tuned for photos from the shoot this week!
