RUE Magazine + GAP + + Me!

Remember the beginning of June, when I posted about getting to work with dreamy photographers Angela & Ithyle and then I returned home with my hair styled in biggest bun ever smack on the top of my head? I can finally share the fun with you… it was for Gap’s campaign with/for Rue Magazine and it’s live now!

Rue chose a few of their favorite LA bloggers to model for the campaign and I was ecstatic they asked me and happily agreed to participate. The amazingly talented Jen Pinkston was on set to style us in adorably colorful and fun pieces from Gap’s summer collection. The remarkably quick and skilled girls at ten.eleven makeup are responsible for making me gorgeous from the neck up. They double-teamed me, doing my hair and makeup at the same time… I had my first airbrush makeup application and the fun false eyelashes added to my hint of a modern 60’s look.

Check out the Rue Magazine June 2012 issue to see the entire campaign which starts on page 30… and while you’re there, you may as well admire all the pages of the fabulous online mag.

Here’s a dreamy behind the scenes look at the entire day, the team and the models doing what they do best. See those pretty little sun bubbles all over the photos? Watch the video to find out how {the beautiful} Angela created the effect! I love learning special little new tricks and tips… especially from the pros.

* Thank you Anne and Crystal of Rue Magazine for thinking of me for this! I had a blast.
