This Fall, our #FashionDriveBy features role reversals in more ways than one. Modeled by Angela Goldman and Kara Pezzimenti, normally the behind-the-scenes stars responsible for the incredible hairstyle coordination you’ve seen in the past, and featuring styling and dresses designed by our Creative Director, Cady Childs, we all put our hands in the pot a little differently this time.
First Edition, Cady Childs’ line, had its true premiere at the DTown ReFASHIONED show back in July. Her inspiration behind the styling and creations of this shoot were the hauntingly heartbreaking faces, silhouettes, and wardrobes of the silent film stars of the 1920s, their sensual fabrics contrasted with stark, harsh lines, perfect hair waves, and heartshaped lips. Their overly expressive faces showing every action and happening twice as dramatically as we would in film now makes for an air of incidental glam that was best captured in that time, when the actors only had their faces and motions to truly tell the story between quote captions. But instead of implying their sensuality and femininity meant needing a man to come to the rescue, we wanted our damsels to flip the script, and escape from distress on their own accord.
Thanks to The Real Laww for being our DURM styled bandit, HT Jewelry for the accessories, and of course, the eye behind the lens that makes all our visions come together, the photographer, Jessi Blakely of Jessica Arden Photography.
