Ray C’Mone’s Six Page Spread with Jezebel Magazine
The queens gonna love this one! Jen Whitley from Click had me yassss’ing her all shoot long. Her story is crazy inspiring. She started modeling at 15 years old & knew that modeling was it for her. She spends most of her career traveling back in forth from the states to Japan. J A P A N! Funny how your dreams can take you places you never dreamed you would be. My passport stay ready.
Oh, & those balls in that second look are actually tree ornaments. Yup :)
Jewelled Slipper: Zara
Pompom Garland worn as necklace: Anthropologie
Isnt she just regal? When I spotted this Leifsdottir dress I traded in the black beaded bodice for this neon holy sweater from Anthropologie. Of course, I had to throw in some sequins from my closet via H&M & I’m always good for pairing a dainty sock & heel. I would have to say that the beaded headpiece & specs had me way excited. I think the specs might have to stay with me although I can’t see a damn thing in them but hey, the less practical the cooler.
Sweater: Anthropogie (a season ago)
Sequin Jacket: H&M (old, 2009)
Socks: Free People
Belt worn as headpiece: Wishing Well Belt, Anthropologie
Lately I’ve been thinking how I can engage more with those who have the slightest interest in my work. How can I give you more? The answer is so simple. By sharing my fruits & knowledge I’ve gained along my journey, duh.
I feel the need to provide you with more than just a slice of the behind the seams experience. As a fashion stylist things never go as planned…NEVA! Behind all the glamour & the final edits that even make it to your eyeballs is a ton of prep work, pulls, pinning, taping, innovation, detail, etc etc etc. By giving you more intricate details along with my posts I hope to inspire you to get started, enlighten the artist way by being open about my respective craft, praise the talented people I work with, oh & tell you where you can cop dope garments :)
This is just a start. My intentions are to be more personal, expose some layers as a dreamer, as a stylist, & show the beauty in evolving. I get mushy sometimes. Ok bye.
This shoot was absolutely magical! I have to say that this look specifically stole my heart. It felt as if we were shooting a dark enchanted editorial for Vogue or somebody. The wigs painted with chalk was nothing short than genius thanks to Mara. Factor model Savannah appears so poised that you cant even tell that she was actually shivering boots! Poor baby. My bestie BT came thru in the clutch to assist me while on set to help me stay organized in the frenzy of gowns like this Adrianna Papell pleat bodice rosette ball gown. Stay tuned to see photographer Paul Thatcher's edits releasing soon :)

Hey, I couldn’t resist the one liner. Isnt this just dreamy & romantic? Look how that crown sit. My mind instantly reverts to Brittany Murphy in Clueless when Cher snaps pics of her in the school yard holding a rose.

this look was not supposed to be this. not even a little bit. here’s the story: the red lace top is in fact an Adrianna Papell boatneck lace sheath dress however, it was a little too fitted for the look we were going for so add a slip & a make shift bow pinned together & wah la…magic!
