The Essence Of A Photo Shoot

Even after watching several magazine fashion shoots in progress, I'm still impressed with the the coordination it takes to put one of these things together.
Yesterday I was at Milk Studio in Hollywood for a cover and fashion shoot with a young movie star for the March issue of a major national magazine.

The studio was impressive with one huge room for the photography

and another huge room for hair, make-up, wardrobe


and a caterer who was making omelette's to order for breakfast and then who came back a couple of hours later with a huge spread for lunch for the talent and crew

Beladora brought some diamond necklaces, earrings and bracelets in platinum

and a couple of trays of Jean Mahie jewelry



Of course there was an additional two tables of jewelry and maybe 50 pairs of shoes and 20 linear feet of outfits hanging on rolling racks.
Since there are large quantities of clothes and accessories for a magazine fashion shoot you never know if your pieces are going to make it into the actual publication.
You just loan the goods and hope for the best.

The talent (who shall remain nameless because we don't want to jinx our chance of getting the cover photo) starred in a major sci fi movie last spring and is coming out in a mega movie next spring, was so very pretty.
And she had an adorable personality.
When you have lived in LA as long as I have you tend to be jaded when it comes to actors and the entire entertainment business
but even with my ho hum attitude, it was hard to take my eyes off of the talent because she was just so pretty.

Wow, gorgeous Beladora bling! Yummy.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a cover for you!

Thanks Pseu. It's so much work to participate in these things and you never know what the result is going to be.
Over the last week we've also had product at W magazine, O magazine and Conde Nast Brides.
I figure that if we loan enough pieces we will get published somewhere.
