I am so excited to share another lovely set of photos from Tyrone Islington! We were going for a very 60s babydoll look with the styling and wardrobe for this shoot. This is one of my favourite outfits, which I have featured on here before, but I just can’t get enough photos of it. I designed and created this little pink playsuit with fabric I got at Mood in NYC. Please enjoy this sweet little set of pictures from Dolly and Tyrone!
Russ Meyer was not only known for his scandalous films featuring voluptuous vixens, he was also a popular photographer of the female form. His photos showcase the unique love he had for women. They are joyous, relaxed, playful and captivating, just like the women in the photographs. As an huge fan of pinup photography I find Meyer’s to be some of the most striking and creative work from that era. He has an obvious love for each model and does a wonderful job of showcasing all her finest features. Enjoy some of my favourite shots from Russ Meyer.
Today I bring you my favourite photo set to date that I have shot with Geoff Larkin. With a look inspired by Amy Adams in American Hustle, we made use of the dramatic lighting in the bathroom at the loft in which we shoot. I love the plunging neckline with loose cleavage that Amy has in the film and was very influenced by that classic 1970s look. The results are sultry, sensual and seductive with cigar in hand. I hope you enjoy Madame Dolly’s mirrored gaze.
Today is the premiere of the 7th season of Mad Men!! I have been a die-hard fan of Mad Men from the get go. Not only is it one of the most intelligent, well-written and captivating shows on television it’s also packed full of amazing costuming, styling and set design. Seeing all those beautiful 60s/70s outfits really inspires me creatively. I just had to cosplay my favourite character from Mad Men, Joan Holloway! To make this dress I bought a vintage 60s dress pattern and picked a very Joanie red fabric. This dress is super comfy and I actually wear it to my work (as a receptionist) quite often. I like to embrace that Joan strength and power when I sit at my desk as work.
