We shot you completely sans make-up! How did that feel?!
See my insta post! I wrote all about it.
"I wore @ilanakohn’s jumpsuits way before I ever met her. Since then we’ve become fast friends and avid animals lovers. I was so honored that she asked to shoot me in her Fall Collection. She found this amazing old studio of Jasper Johns to use as our location, brought lights and shot everything on digital (so multi-talented!) So a huge thank you to her, also thank you to @thegenevaconvention who shot ACTUAL film, and @ilanaelizabeth who shot all these behind the scenes moments and of course, @doratheexploralondon for tagging along and stealing the spotlight as always.
Today was a real lesson in grace for me. It was humid and there was no getting around my frizzy hair. There was no hair stylist. There was no makeup artist. Ilana said she’d prefer I not wear any makeup whatsoever. I’m not sure I’ve ever done that on a photo shoot before, to be honest. I felt my vanity kick right in and say: “You look old. You look fat. You lost all your muscle. You have flabby arms. You don’t look cool. You’re not relevant or good or special. Your smile is crooked and you don’t know how to pose. Who do you think you are?” So I had to make a choice. I replied and said: “Thanks so much for your input. Now please fuck off and be frightened and hateful somewhere else. Let me enjoy my day.” You know what? I had a great time.❤️"
