Its sort of an outlet for me. We normally go in the direction of a gift guide, but I chose instead to do just a beautiful series of stories with beautiful images and objects to dream about.

HOLIDAY BEAUTY !

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE. A HELMUT NEWTON CHRISTMAS. This Issue was inspired by the iconic German photographer Helmut Newton. I love his use of shadows and the way he portrayed the strength and sexuality of a woman. Makeup played a big part in his images, a perfectly stained lip along with a perfectly manicured lacquered hand. We cannot forget the use of fashion to bring his woman to life. Enter Makeup and Hair stylist @debbie_jacks at @distinctartists . Our Newton girl of the moment comes to us via @Selectmodelchicago , she is but 14. It was quite a challenge to bring out that Newtonesque beauty. Kate’s look started with Armani Luminous Silk Foundation  applied sparingly.  The focus of this look is...

DECEMBER! MENS HELMUT NEWTON!!

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE AND TO THE MENS EDITION OF THE HOLIDAY ISSUE. This season, as I've previously stated, I was inspired by the iconic photographer HELMUT NEWTON. I adored his 1994 campaign for Gianni Versace. The lighting was severe and the attitude was a bit sexual but extremely sophisticated. In preparing for any shoot, I start with the clothes and then the models. Luckily there were a few that has just signed to agencies here in the city. I must say that it's extremely hard to find a male model that has African features, It's all the rage in Paris. @linowilson comes to us Via @selectmodelchicago. His future is bright and he will make...

It's actually quite smart to buy something one can use again and again. In our featured image , @Viktorandrolfmariage silk satin jumpsuit with exaggerated bow is a perfect example of a non traditional bridal confection.
