Yesterday we shot an ad campaign for Lugano Diamonds, a Newport Beach-based jewelry brand specializing in the finest quality stones. The concept was simple: elegant, sophisticated, a bit of glam. We loved watching as model Dana Stuce reclined on luxe Habité furniture to a Julie London soundtrack. We double-loved our makeup, hair and styling squad for getting that gamine eye, cascading hair-curl and shoulder-baring gown juuuust right.
Best of all? Lugano sources exclusively cruelty-free diamonds and is a member of The Kimberly Process, a United Nations effort to protect ethical stone sources. So while my heart fluttered when I tried on a 10 carat flawless pear-cut ring on set, my conscience was content.
And my inner Marilyn sang:
I don’t mean rhinestones!
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
Here’s a look behind the scenes…
Last night was the finale of Mad Men’s fifth season and we are going to miss Manhattan’s dapper ad-men. To bid adieu to our favorite drama, we remember the lovely Alison Brie, shot by Giuliano Bekor for ELLE Canada‘s April issue. The actress, also known as Mrs. Trudy Campbell, embodied the retro glamour that the show is known for starting with the cover shot: she wears a mint green dress by Vera Wang on the roof at the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
The old Hollywood look was flawlessly achieved thanks to stylist Anita Patrickson and make-up artist, Sage Maitri, of The Wall Group. Alison’s beautiful hair styling was done by Robert Ramos and Gilbert Muniz of Cloutier Remix. We can’t forget those bright, spring nails by Debbie Leavitt of Cloutier Remix.
Alison’s beauty reminds us that Don Draper isn’t the only one we are going to be missing. We can’t wait for season six!
Today we are focused on actress, model, singer, and arguably one of the most beautiful women to have walked the Earth, Marilyn Monroe. The sexy and talented leading lady is remembered most for her iconic fashion and retro glamour- defining the “Monroe-era” look that inspired this glamorous photo shoot by Giuliano Bekor. With blonde bombshells, sexy show-girls, and fluttering lashes, this collection embodies some of Marilyn’s biggest movies and most memorable characters. Her look- red lips, glossy skin, and thick liner- has been idolized by Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Dior, Jason Wu, Temperley London, Yves Saint Laurent during spring/summer fashion week. Marilyn Monroe is our star today, reminding us that our art continues to capture the epitome of allure and style as it has since June 1st, 1926. Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe!
