We happily spent the day yesterday in the hot California sun with super beautiful actress and animal activist Mayte Garcia (…she used to be married to The Artist Formerly Known as Prince) and our friends at Genlux Magazine. Creative Director extraordinaire Stephen Kamifuji asked me to stop by the photo shoot to work some Nikki Rich magic into the mix with uber-talented stylist Amy Mach and make-up artist Patrick Tumey. We pulled into the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills and were all at once impressed with this super cool location. The vibe was decidedly luxury, but at the same time completely cool and laid-back.
While there were racks and racks of clothes and shoes for the shoot we got right to work slipping Mayte into a pair of our black, vegan leather shorts. Amy topped her off with a gorgeous striped Marc Jacobs top and black suede heels, and of course her hair and make-up were simply to-die-for!
While we were there it was fun to meet Jessica Conseco, Mayte’s beautiful friend who also currently stars with her in the VH1 reality series “Hollywood Exes.”
We are so glad to share another exciting day with you. I’ll let you know when the images go to print in Genlux. Better yet, I’ll share them with you here.
