Isn’t she gorgeous? Linda Evangelista is my all time favourite supermodel, and I could never get over how many different looks she could get away with. Redhead, brunette, blonde, even blue! She always looked fabulous. Granted, make up and lighting (and nowadays Photoshop) had a lot to do with it, but she is my favourite.
Today was my turn- my SIL and I drove off to the studio this afternoon for our Me! magazine photo shoot (yup- that’s the glossy I’m gonna be in). I don’t have pictures- but they’ll be mailing me some to brag with in the next couple of days. Our make-up and hair was done by a trained professional and the photographer (also a pro with his own private studio) was very good at putting me at ease. I didn’t watch me SIL’s shoot, I thought she’d be a little less self conscious with just the photographer and his assistant. I was nervous as all hell- but he made me laugh, and he talked to me about why I was going to be in the magazine, and- even though I think there are few people on the planet who can say they genuinely like having their picture taken- the results weren’t all bad.
My SIL said the photographer told her I was a natural prima-donna… or something along those lines… then again, I always knew I was meant for the limelight, I mean, I so “fit” on a red carpet… mwaaaaahahahahaha! I did mention to him of course that most of my family is involved in photography in some way so I’ve pretty much grown up with a camera- but my being so naturally gorgeous and divine… I couldn’t help myself!
There Is Never An Excuse
One in three is not a statistic - one in three is a crying shame.
