CRUSHED ON YOU
Let’s just say these photos are not a joke! They speak for themselves right? Raunchy, vibrant, sexy, crazy and hardcore. In other words LIL KIM.
Recently I got a chance to work with a wicked team for VICE magazine. Norman Wong shot the spread and I loved working with him and his team, and needless to say he is incredibly talented. I lent a helping hand to my friend and AMAZING makeup artist Mila Victoria (milavictoria.com). If you haven’t heard of Mila (there is no way you haven’t ) she is a very successful MUA in the T DOT. She is an inspiration to me and I have looked up to her SKILLZ, since we met in 2009.
As Lil Kim and Biggie Smalls blared in the background, we banged out 9 looks, makeup and hair at the Windsor Arms Hotel in Yorkville, Toronto. Clearly Lil Kim marches at the beat of her own drum, so using many different coloured wigs and vibrant makeup we had a blast recreating these looks! Dana Wright was a perfect fit for the shoot and her personality made the photos come to life.
Pick an issue up at American Apparel, the full spread is below and is also featured on http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/crushed-on-you2. All in all this shoot and team were amazing and it was refreshing to get to do something crazy and OUT THERE!
Shout out to my thrilla, MILA VICTORIA for counting me in! xoxoxoxo
