Hello Readers! Some very exciting new projects are happening here at Style Anthem! One exciting venture is a full fledged image consulting firm with me and my team of talented friends: makeup artist(Amanda Sigmon), photographer(Cleopatra Sharpe),hairstylists (Kristin Forte'/Queenet Nwobi) and Chief Stylist (moi) culminating to create a styling "super power" we handle everything from wardrobing the essential everday work wardrobe to special events to styling weddings etc. The previous pictures are our promotional photos we had tons of fun on this shoot, I drew inspiration from many places one being the electrifying Givenchy Haute Couture Spring 2010 show for the makeup. The dramaticism of the look as far as the face was concerned was the perfect balance for the intricate detailing in the clothes, almost alien-like. As far as the "look" was concerned I drew ideas for current trends such as lace and counteracted it with the past, The long sheer nightgown was thrifted and could easily have been a style that would have been worn around the late 1800s, I then paired it with my cabachon encrested necklace (chezelle boutique;Charlotte,NC). The second look was inspired by the bygone era of the burlesque/speak-easy, the bodysuit (thrifted) is velvet which is still going strong this season; the shoes are Oh Deer!, and the thigh highs are Preston and York. I would be delighted to hear feedback from my readers, which pics do you like the most? The one with the most votes will be the forefront of our advertising campaign.
