Another day, another Flare magazine post. What can I say? They kept me pretty busy as guest editor! I’m pretty pumped about this project. This was my first time art directing an editorial, and it was an amazing experience. As you’ll see in this behind-the-scenes video, I got to cast the models, help with the wardrobe, and work with my friend and favorite makeup artist Veronica Chu.

Heavy metals, steely sequins and badgal glitter make for the most iced-out season yet. Watch as our disco-inspired roller derby shoot—directed by guest editor Coco Rocha—comes to life!

DRESSED TO KILL - December 2013

You’ve probably heard me talk about my friend Veronica Chu before - she’s my right-hand lady and has been my go-to makeup artist for the last few years (in fact, she did all my makeup on The Face). She and her boyfriend, Moo King, are quite the creative duo and this was actually the first time I got to work with them as a couple. We hope you enjoy the editorial at least half as much as we enjoyed making it! Stay tuned for the behind-the-scenes video.
