Dimitry and I at Sterling Williams Benefit Fashion Show

I never go out any more....I don't know when that happened but.....oh well I finally got a chance to go out when Dimitry and I were invited to the hot club, Social, in Hollywood for a Sterling Williams benefit fashion show. It was fun to be out and about with the who's who of Hollywood for this cool event benefiting Aids awareness.

One Model 2 looks

This was a fun shoot Dimitry and I did with model, Julie Pham. I love the black outfit and she added this little hat that made the look. Dimitry always comes up with great locations and found this cool sign to shoot next to.

Here I am with Julie again and by using a wig we changed her look, totally. If you see the pictures side by side, you can barely tell it's the same girl. I love doing quick changes like that.

This is such a cool look!

Me and Berry Gordy Continued

I just discovered the brilliant tribute that my friends at Lipstick, Inc. put together about Motown founder, Berry Gordy, for the Rick Weiss Humanitarian Award he won last year. I was on hand (to do make-up) when the interview portion with Mr. Gordy was shot at his home. And as you can see by the picture, Mr. Gordy was both charming and warm. That will be a day I will never forget. So check out this wonderful tribute about a living legend and business genius.....Thanks Lipstick, Inc., you did an amazing job.

Heather Hyde Shoot

Dimitry and I had the pleasure of working with hot new Hollywood Jewelry designer, Heather Hyde. Heather specializes in one-of-a kind custom pieces that she creates by hand. A-list celebs like Eva Longoria, Christina Ricci, Halle Bery, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, just to name a few, wear her amazing designs. We shot on 2 days......day one was with 5 models....3 looks each.....in 5 hours. Whew....that was a busy day of both hair and make-up for me. But I love a challenge as much as love doing both hair and make-up.

Here's one of the models with a great necklace and earring set.

The second day was Dimitry and Heather doing shots (check them out working together, below) for her promo and look books. We got a chance to see the full jewelry line (although Heather is always adding new styles) and I want one of each.
