This July, as you might already know, I went to Milan to do some modeling there. This time, I shot an editorial for the Italian magazine TuStyle, which is owned by the same publisher as Grazia. My call time was 10:00 in the morning, but I needed to come to the end station of a metro line, so my way to go there took some time. After arriving, a driver picked me up and brought me to the studio which is a bit outside of Milan, but it took only 10 minutes by car to go there, so no big journey for me. The M8 studios are used for the publisher Mondadori, with 14 different studios and different equipment.
Since my job only took half a day, we started with hair and make-up kind of quickly. I was really lucky because as you will see in the pictures, everything is very natural. No products were used for my hair, they just curled it a very little bit and combed through my bangs (as always). The make-up was also very simple: natural brows, transparent lip balm, a little bit of blush and mascara. Sometimes make-up artists don't use any foundation on me because they tell me that good skin doesn't need any, so my face stayed kind of bare this time.
The stylist already prepared my outfits which were five in total, and I immediately saw that the editorial will be about denim! The photographer Cristiano Miretti shot two looks before taking lunch at around 12:30. The food there was okay, but definitely not great. I ate some slack fried fries and drank water. After chatting a bit with the team, we went back to the studio and shot another three looks. Cristiano seemed to be a really fast photographer. If he thought that the perfect picture was already taken, he continued with the next outfit instead of making more and more pictures of the same look.
The last outfit was the one with the brown jacket (have a look below) and you might would think that I'm posing there. Actually I was just standing around, Cristiano made some snaps and after ten seconds he said "Okay, we're done". First I thought it's a joke because I was just waiting, but he really meant it.Everybody applauded, I changed back into my clothes, said goodbye to everyone after a few minutes and went back to my apartment. The whole job took me about 5 hours, so it wasn't a long day.
Would you ever wear one of these looks on your own? It seems that flares are en vogue again...still reminds me so much of the time when I was around 10 years old and it was super chic.
