The theme was sort of vintage 50s/60s house wife but in a modern kitchen setting...another reason I agreed. Anyone who reads this blog knows I LOVE me some RED lipstick, Mad Men style and Vintage Hairstyling! There was actually an element of red woven throughout the shoot from Vicki's shoes, to her nails, to the lipstick and even the bowls she used as props.
I'll tell you more about the actual show when I have the "Real" Promo Pics to share w/ you...I'll let Vicki give me a little synopsis b/c anything I say isn't going to do it justice lol.
So as I mentioned before it was 50s/60s vintage all the way for styling. Victoria has great features for this sort of look - perfectly full lips w/ a great cupid's bow (perfect for a bold red lip), pale creamy skin and full brows. Plus, this shoot gave me another opportunity to work on perfecting an awesome beehive hairstyle! I had brought a "hair rat" for stuffing for volume but you know what I didn't even need it...the pics - that's ALL Vicki's hair! I was going for something over-the-top...even a bit cartoonish and I think I accomplished that one!
The photographer from the shoot was actually another fellow blogger and Vicki's old university roommate - Joanna Haughton. So it was a really relaxed and fun half day shoot where we were all able to catch up, gossip and have some laughs. I can't wait to see the finished product b/c I know it's going to be AWESOME!
Here's some behind the scenes pics. Any pics where you see me working are courtesy of Joanna Haughton and her blog!
Yeah I did some MAJOR TEASING!

Joanna is birthing a giant light here!
Every night during the show Vicki is actually going to make the dessert she is tasting in the pic - Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse - YUMMY!
