LIFE via INSTAGRAM (Part Three) - June 20th to July 11th
Aaand we’ve reached the final installment of my Life via Instagram posts for the week. Recently I’ve worked on a few projects (two of which are still a secret) and tried out some new looks! Until next time…
For an event I sported a slightly new hair look thanks to my friend Bryce Scarlett. What do you guys think?
Hanging with my Wilhelmina agents… and yes, I made them do it.
Full on reunion with Behati my favorite model last night - #COHATI is now in its 8th year!
Smoothie time!! Posting this now before I blend it into a brown slurpee.
Doing a little photo-challenge: I know you’re all masters of the selfie by now, but being a good model means being able to pose with someone else behind the camera. My challenge to you is to have a friend take a portrait of you and post it with the hashtags #notaselfie #mkdreambeautiful. Strike a pose and I’ll like my favorites!
Working with Miss Veronica Chu on not one but TWO top secret projects today! Can’t wait to tell you all…
Keeping with the earlier post, this weeks #ThrowbackThursday is dedicated to the #COHATI younger years. My friend Behati and I practically raised one another - Two teenagers traveling the world together and growing up in this weird wonderful world of fashion.
NYFW via INSTAGRAM (Part One) - February 5th to 7th
And so it is fashion month. Here is the first installment of this season’s Life via Instagram - #NYFW edition. At the beginning of this whirlwind week I got to see some pretty ladies, wear some cool clothes and celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the Model Alliance.
The #SuperBowl may be over, but the sex trafficking of young women around big events continues to be a shocking problem right here at home. Go to www.notsosuper.org to find out more. #notsosuper

NYC traffic is horrendous today, but I made it in time for my first show of NYFW-BCBGby Max Azria. Max was one of the earliest supporters of my career! #bcbglive
My second look of the day is the Macy’s #MADE4Impulse line by my friends at Made Fashion Week! It’s the perfect little black dress. Get the look atwww.macys.com.
Gracia Urbana (Urban Grace) - Vogue Mexico December, 2012
My second editorial for next months Vogue Mexico took place in the center of the universe - aka - Times Square New York. Having shot everywhere from outside in the middle of a blizzard to a room literally on fire I can honestly say, here is probably no crazier place on earth for a model to shoot than Times Square in the middle of the day. All the tourists swarm and think you’re Mickey Mouse, stopping to point or take your picture. I remember at one point all the girls and guys working at Sephora came out of the store and were my own personal cheer leaders, it was amazing. Dewey Nicks the photographer would sometimes use a very long camera lens so often I was posing like a mad-woman with no apparent photographer around, leaving everyone to wonder what on earth this crazy baroque-looking ballerina was doing flailing her arms and legs in every direction. As a side note, many years ago I worked with Dewey on a shoot in the pacific north west with my friend BehatiPrinsloo (remember this cute picture?). We spent half our time running around the forest, hiding from production, and just generally acting like 12 year olds so I’m sure it took him at least this long to take me seriously again! haha.
