its a good day when you are surrounded by an amazing talented team, shooting all over hot sunny beautiful paris. good vibes and just oh so fun. i was hanging out of balconies on boulevard saint germain, leaning over ledges and splashing barefoot in the dirtiest fountain under the Sacre Coeur of Montmartre. I was melting in fur and even saved a beautiful fur jacket from falling to its death into the seine. Under the bridges of Ile Saint Louis there were piles of shit and it smelled horrible like piss but you wouldn't be able to tell from the photo!
i guess the best part of shooting the trends editorial for shopbop is that i've been a fan of the website for years. I used to shop on it all the time, and when i worked at CD Network in NYC, i've sold them wholesale clothing, and now I get to model for them ... so now the cycle is complete! This is also the first work i've done as a model that will be seen in the US. :)

In Paris in June I shot Elle France with the designers with Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared. It was so much fun, such amazing clothes and styling, and gorgeous hair and makeup. It was a fun prom-dance theme... and a funny bit of information is that Dan and Dean are from Canada but both went to prom in Arizona where they lived during high school, like me! hehehe
Below are the published photos which came out August 3rd in Elle France. And following it are some behind the scene shots i took during the shoot. :)
