While you wait for John Doe to remember that he is really Prince Charming, check out our favorite photos from the shoot:
Who: Vanessa Lengies
Why: Vanessa is a quadruple threat; she’s smart, funny, talented and gorgeous.
The GLEE guest star showed up at our studio at 8:30AM with a smile on her face and a contagious excitement about shooting with Giuliano. In between looks, Vanessa was singing, talking about Occupy LA, reminiscing about her time on “American Dreams” (the show that started her career), and laughing about how many of the facts on her IMDB page are wrong.
To set the record straight, I played a game of “True or False” with Vanessa while I read over the facts that are on her IMDB page.
- False: Her middle name is not Lynne-Marie and she has no idea why it is listed as that.
- True: She is Half-Egyptian and she does speak French and some Arabic.
- False: She does not wake up in the morning with a “Vanilla Ice Blended caffeine drink.” In fact, she’s never had one before.
But she did share some other great facts with us that are 100% true:
- Her nickname as a child was “Bones” because she wanted to be a paleontologist.
- She has a fear of tsunami tidal waves (even though she knows that tsunamis are not tidal waves).
- She loves working on GLEE and even said that she has never worked on a show before where the fans were “so kind.”
By the end of the shoot, everyone was in tears from laughing at Vanessa’s jokes that she played on Giuliano. But we were also in shock of the transformation that she had made. In just a few hours Vanessa had gone from the sweet, adorable girl we all know and love to a sexy woman that no one has ever seen before… And won’t until the photos are ready to be released.
Although it barely fels like Autumn in Los Angeles right now, designers all over the city are getting ready for the Spring season. LA Fashion Week wrapped yesterday, but there are still fashion events being held until the end of the month.
On Friday, we held our own LA Fashion Week “event” and shot the Spring 21012 look book for a new, up and coming line, Tyler Kim. The all-day photo shoot featured one model and 20 feminine designs, fresh flower prints, and bold stripes. Giuliano captured the looks in a unique way; think less catalogue, more fashion editoral.
Here’s a sneak peak of the look book with behind the scenes photos from the shoot:

Who: Nina Dobrev
What: Elle Canada, September 2011
Why: The young actress has a hit TV Show, “The Vampire Diaries,” her co-stars are two of the hottest actors (and their characters are constantly fighting over her), girls all over the world want to be her, and she is absolutely gorgeous.
Giuliano’s photos of Nina for Elle Magazine show some of the season’s best beauty looks. From glowy cheeks to smokey eyes, Nina’s simple make-up looks enhance her beautiful face.
When I had Jon Bernthal in my studio earlier this year I was curious about his show, “The Walking Dead.” I watched the premiere of the new season last night and I loved it! Jon was great in front of my camera, but it was amazing to see him on TV.
In honor of the show’s premiere, I want to share more photos I took of Jon (I posted some back in April that you can see here).
Good job, Jon, and congratulations on the new season!
Yesterday was a busy day at Lightbox Studio – we had three lovely girls in for photo shoots. Despite the fact that they are all involved in big projects and are sure to become big stars, the girls were easy-going and so much fun to work with. Each one brought a different energy into the studio that made every shoot exciting.
Jessica Parker Kennedy‘s name has become well-known in the past month after the release of her film 50/50 and the premier of her CW Network show, The Secret Circle. Even with her rising popularity, the young starlet didn’t have a Twitter when she walked in the studio’s doors. After showing her how fun the social network is, she jumped on the bandwagon and joined the Twitterverse as @JParkerK - everyone should go follow her now!
Internet sensation Carly Craig has worked to take her popularity to larger screens and we hear her fans are not complaining. The actress just finished filming The Three Stooges movie that is set to release next year, and after a day of shooting with her, we are sure she will be hilarious in the film. Even with her comedic style, Carly was able to get serious and give some me some amazing poses.
Camilla Luddington‘s latest project, William & Kate, is a TV movie about the royal newlyweds, but she was no Princess in my studio. When we chatted with her about the film she was modest about the opportunity to play Kate Middleton. Her modest and low-key attitude was apparent in front of and behind the camera, but we were sure to show her sexy side too, as the British actress is soon to be seen in the provocative show Californication.

Laurieann Gibson is known for her award winning choreography with clients like Lady Gaga, Diddy, and Jessica Alba. She is ALWAYS moving and dancing, but Giuliano was able to bring out her wild style and eccentric personality even in these amazing still shots! Click through to see more images from the shoot.
