  • To get into the holiday spirit, out of the city and create some beautiful content for Sézane, Scott and I headed towards the mountains of Big Bear. We stayed in a beautiful, warm, charming and cozy cabin (link here) and enjoyed shooting and playing tunes. It was so hard to leave; I wanted to stay there forever!!! Our host, Jake, was an absolute sweetheart and made sure we felt welcomed

  • One of my favorite L.A. based jewelry designers, Loren Stewart (whom I've also worked with!), gifted me this beautiful necklace that I haven't taken off for the past six months, at least! Thank you Loren! I love Loren's jewelry (especially her gold chains and signet rings) because it's simple, timeless, classic and beautifully made. Aside from being beautiful (and versatile with just about any outfit), this necklace is particularly special to me because

  • Woohoo! Who knew I'd ever be saying that about salad? But it's true! With the right, fresh ingredients, you too can make salads that will rock your world!

  • A street-style moment with Sézane and Baldwin (neither sponsoring this post). Two things I love: quality and effortless wearability.

  • For the past year or so a major shift in U.S. culture has been happening. For the first time in U.S. history, the conversation around sexual assault and abuse (something that impacts around 1 in 3 women), is finally being heard, opening up and shedding a hard light (and hopefully justice) on the silent suffering women have experienced for far too long. Sexual assault, a topic that since the time of man has

  • About a month ago I released an IGTV video covering my everyday makeup routine, something I’d been wanting to share for a long time! I am so grateful for all of your comments, sweet responses and suggestions for mascaras I should try — Glossier definitely took the cake and I just ordered it! I can’t wait to try it out. I also can’t wait to create an everyday hair tutorial

  • This summer I had the opportunity to fly out from NY back to L.A. to do a shoot for Anthropologie. As if shooting for Anthropologie weren’t exciting enough, the sunny day in L.A. was spent working with one of my favorite photographers Graham Dunn (whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with quite a few times now) and the darling Anthro team (whom I’d met a few weeks earlier in

  • This summer Scott and I had the chance to finally visit the scenic Calanques, which are beautiful coves of tall, canopy-filled cliffs and crystal-clear blue waters, located in the South of France, in between Cassis and Marseille. Although we've been going to France together for three years now, we never drift too far from my summer hometowns of Pyla or Paris in efforts to spend as much time as we can

  • Hi guys! I'm excited to start sharing more of my daily, healthy dishes with you! As a model, my work partially relies on being able to find a healthy mind and body balance. It's taken years to figure out what that meant for me, but today I'm happy to say I've found it. That "it" is de-stressing, focusing on eating foods that FEEL good to the body aka whole foods

  • I love wearing outfits I can easily wear from day to night, which is why I feel quality pieces like Kamm pants or Dôen tops do the trick beautifully. With a quick change of shoe and/or purse, you're ready for the evening! Scott took these street-style photos as we were going out on the town for a little ice cream. It was golden hour (so not entirely night-time), I wanted

  • Peony, an adorable swimwear line from Australia I've fallen in love with, is taking a more sustainable route this season. As if boasting feminine florals, quality craftsmanship and beautiful fit aren't love-inducing enough, this Spring they decided to take a lead in what is undoubtedly one of the most important causes in the fashion industry: sustainability. Fashion, particularly fast-fashion (designs produced at low-cost, high speeds and high turnover rates), produces inexorable damage to both

  • Sézane, one of my favorite brands (especially for leather and knits!) that Scott and I have been working with a lot interviewed me this summer about

  • Back in late June Scott and I had the incredible opportunity to shoot a campaign for Anthropologie! The shoot took place in two locations — first Pottersville, then Lambertville, New Jersey. It was our first time ever traveling to Jersey and we had so much fun discovering these two adorable, small-town locations. A big thank you to Anthropologie's team of incredibly kind, talented, hardworking souls: Jodie, Melissa, Marlon, Christie, Shannon, Peter,

  • A little street-style moment while walking through Brooklyn to go meet up with Margaux & Emilie for lunch! Scott and I have been loving living and getting to know the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn. It's quiet, beautiful, close to parks, nature, transportation, grocery stores, etc. We also, luckily, came at one of the most beautiful times of the year — spring! So when we crossed paths with this little flowery

  • I’ve officially been in New York for over a month. It’s hard to believe time has flown by so quickly. Am I just getting older (time moves faster they say) or have I just been having too much fun? The answer — both. The second answer surprises me most, however.“Having fun” and “New York” have never been synonymous for me. Sure, prior to this trip I’d flown out for fun

  • Eeee it's out! My LA home tour and interview with Glitter Guide is up on their site here, with a beautiful write-up by Wendy Vasquez (thank you!). When Taylor Sterling, founder and creative director of Glitter Guide, and Samantha Welker, business manager, asked if I would be open to giving a little home tour

  • A little street-style moment on Abbott Kinney in Venice, California. I love the linen fabric, creamy whites, and embroidery on this Eres x Vita Kin dress! So beautiful and effortlessly elegant. A perfect look for a summer in Los Angeles, post dip in the ocean. Also, can we talk about these espadrilles?! They are the perfect espadrille, and I should know because every summer in the south of France I am

  • Eres by Vita Kin So excited to announce Eres' new collection with Ukranian designer Vita Kin with a new series of photos! Eres holds a meaningful place in my heart as it is a brand that has been cherished by my beloved grandmother ever since I can remember. I know I probably sound like a broken record by now, but my grandmother made sure to instill in me an eye and love

  • Yay! Sézane interviewed me about what it's like to live in L.A and you can find the interview "From Paris to L.A." here! Working alongside Sézane is an honor and joy. Not only do I love the brand and their aesthetic, general spirit, kind-hearted team and founder Morgane Sezalory, but I feel connected to my first home of France when working with them

  • A few months back We Are The Rhoads , a photography duo made up of Chris and Sarah Rhoads, photographed me in Malibu for Esquire magazine. I'd shot with The Rhoads a few months prior, for Tom's fall campaign (here), therefore reuniting was such a joy! It was also my first time shooting for Esquire, which was exciting. Finally, everyone on set was as sweet as can be, which made

  • Hi everyone! First off, I'd like to thank you for your love and congratulations on my signing with Muse in New York! I've been overwhelmed with your messages and NYC recommendations and can't thank you enough. It is an absolute dream come true and I am so grateful and excited! Thank you! And now, here are some photos from a date night that Scott and I went on. We were walking

  • ft. On Life Beauty x AG Jeans It's here!!! In 2017 Scott and I shot a video series in collaboration with AG Jeans, where we talk about working as a creative couple, finding beauty, and what On Life Beauty means to us. Director Stewart Maclennan approached us for the project and we were so excited to work with him and create

  • My heart is softly racing as I type this. For almost a month now, I’ve been waiting to release my feelings and words into the world, along with this exciting announcement: I am now represented in New York by Muse Models! And it feels as serendipitous as ever. It is as if all of these years of working and growing into the woman that I am, has prepared me for

  • Last week Jimmy, his wife Jesse, stylist Rima, and makeup-artist Sonia and I drove off into the California desert. We ended up shooting in unbloomed poppy fields and a misty rain that felt like a produce aisle. It was gloomy and refreshing! The sun shone through every once in a while, like a gift from above. We wrapped our shoot with the welcoming of a beautiful, complete rainbow. It was a

  • Out with the old, in with the new

  • Woohoo! A few months ago,  Hilary Walsh (whom I love and adore!) photographed me in Venice for the newest Grazia France issue. When she called me for the shoot, I was delighted and excited! To shoot for French publications, and especially Grazia France, means that my grandparents can see what I do from their closest newsstand. Seeing as my grandmother first introduced me to fashion and beauty

  • When I received Chanel's invitation for their "We Love Coco" party a few weeks ago, I was in awe and very excited. Being a part of the Chanel community means more to me than lipstick and glamour. As I mentioned on my Instagram a few days ago, it means a certain closeness to my grandmother (who first introduced me to fashion & all things Chanel) and making her proud

  • Dôen Spring 18 is out!!! This time around we shot in beautiful Lima, Peru (yes, Peru! A dream!). We stayed there for a total of five days — two to travel, three to shoot. Although the circumstances were difficult at times, with high winds and unexpected traffic, we had a beautiful time, made some memories and had fun along the way. I love this collection (and the ladies behind it

  • When Bastide reached out about sharing their newest eau de toilette perfume "Figue Amour" with me, I was both curious and delighted. Although I am originally from France, I had never heard of Bastide before (however the name did ring a bell

  • Golden hour!!! My absolute favorite time of day (runner-up is early morning, bright and early!). Golden hour (or when the sun is setting) is the time when magical shadows and beams of light come out to play. The world seems to slow down for a moment, and, depending on your perspective, it also feels as though the world has been flipped upside down. Trees aren't just trees; they are themselves PLUS the

  • TOMS FW18 is here! A few months back I had the pleasure of shooting TOMS' FW18 collection with We Are The Rhoads; a photography couple-duo made up of Chris and Sarah Rhoads. We began the first half of our shoot in Highland Park and ended at a little lake up in the mountains near Mount Washington (for any non-Angelinos, we primarily shot on the East side of LA, in nature

  • Hi! Welcome to my apartment! Well, a corner of it 🙂 One of my absolute favorite things about living in this apartment is the gorgeous light that fills our living room in the morning. As soon as I wake up (after checking my phone, of course), I quickly open my bedroom door and peek around the corner to take in all of the light. It's like sunshine for my soul!

  • Happy New Year!!! I am so grateful for 2017 and so grateful for so many of you that have followed along through it all. Here are a few thoughts that I also shared on Instagram. 2017 was

  • For the holidays Scott and I headed toward Boise, Idaho, which is Scott's hometown! We've come here past winters and summers, each time enjoying the fresh air, untouched nature, family time, and peaceful silence that comes from a small city (unlike hectic Los Angeles). Scott's parents always welcome us with open arms, and their love paired with the cozy cabin (up in the mountains of McCall, a few hours away

  • Last month Scott and I celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary, four years together as a couple and Scott's birthday! I was initially planning on surprising Scott with a trip up to Northern California. However, the treehouse was in Santa Rosa; the area that was sadly ravaged by a terrible fire. Anyway, Scott suggested we go to France and stay with my grandparents!

  • A few weeks ago my beautiful, sweet friends of The Girls With Glasses, Summer Bellessa and Brooke White, asked me to talk about what it means to be an HSP. To be honest, I didn’t know the term HSP existed until about six months ago. However, when I looked into it, it all made sense. I had a real "aha" moment. So, what is HSP? And what does it mean to

  • Taking self-portraits has been one of my most favorite creative outlets for the past five years.  A few weeks ago, by clicking on the hashtag #noiretportrait (a hashtag I created to document these portraits), I noticed that my first self-portrait was way back in 2013! Looking back at my portrait work, I was able to see the progress and growth that I've had as a creative and human — not

  • A few nights ago Scott and I went to bed with the desire to shoot a few portraits in our apartment the next morning. Although we are attached at the hip and live freelance lifestyles, finding the spontaneity to shoot (especially for me) hasn't come easy. I tend to overthink and often become overwhelmed with the idea of creating something perfectly— which, for the record, is impossible. I'm slowly learning, however,

  • A few days ago Scott and I went out on a little outing to shoot some photos and head over to the Pasadena farmers market. Along the way I spotted this beautiful bridge—though a little old and rough around the edges, it was photogenic and filled with gorgeous, rounded "clamshell triangle" designs (yes, I googled desperately to try to find the term, and that is one of them!). We parked

  • For the past few years, my spiritual world has gone through a deep chasm, shifting and widening, leaving my soul wandering, departing on a journey to find all that I can about what is good, and most of all, what is right. I found Mormonism in my mid-teens. Although I was hesitant to delve into the world of religion at the time, I quickly fell in love with the people.

  • Doen FW17 came out about a month ago and I'm finally sharing it with you! (Typically I'm able to gather photos and create these posts right away, but between work and family life, it took a little longer this time around.) I know I've written about this a few times now, but shooting with the Dôen team is such a special experience for me. It isn't just about clothes or fashion

  • YAY! New digis are here, shot by Mike Courtney, one of my agents at Vision. Thank you, Mike! Additionally, I'd like to give a shout out and thank you to my Vision family for always being there, along for the ride. I may feel my best today, both mentally and physically, but it's taken a journey, as you can read more of here. As a model working in the fashion industry,

  • This summer Scott and I had a chance to visit and stay at the David and Gladys Wright House, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpieces in Phoenix, Arizona. The spiraled house was built by the one and only Frank Lloyd Wright, an American architect known for designing structures in harmony with humanity and its environment (or as he called it, "organic architecture").  This house was built for Frank's son, David,

  • Or in other words, "My Summer Vacation"! This summer I had the chance to go back to my summer hometown in Arcachon, France. Residing in the southwest of France, Arcachon is known as a vacation spot for the people of Bordeaux, especially as it is only about an hour away.  Filled with tall pine trees, farmers markets, beaches, boating, and families, it's the perfect place to spend a relaxing summer.

  • As you may already know if you've been following my Instagram, a few months ago Scott and I had the sweet surprise of having our wedding day featured in the latest Spring/Summer issue of Vogue Spain Brides!!!  It came as an honor and surprise that our wedding would be featured as inspiration in the first place, but to be featured alongside Lady Charlotte Wellesley, Jerry Hall, Ciara and Agyness Deyn

  • Sézane x Mary Janes  There's nothing quite like a simple, classic bleu-marine (navy) jumper like this one from Sézane, a French company (that I love!) based in Paris. I paired the jumper (a term that is typically British, to mean sweater!) with Doen's new Mary Jane shoes. Both are incredibly comfortable, beautiful and effortless, easily paired with jeans (like these from &OtherStories) or Kamm pants. This outfit is a perfect everyday relaxed look

  • My approach to using skincare and beauty products has always been fairly minimal and to-the-point: a layer of sunscreen, moisturizer and maybe a cat-eye. While my grandmother Marie-Christine swears by the every-day look of a wine red lip and lined eye, I've always felt my most genuine self when I've kept it simple. Au natural. And besides, I'm an all-or-nothing kind of girl. Either go all out or nothing at all

  • Hi beauties! Here’s a little street-style post of what I wore on Easter Sunday yesterday. Scott and I spent the morning with family, hiding chocolate eggs and golden bunnies for my siblings! This outfit was a perfect combo of style and comfort. I am so in love with the bell sleeves and little pom-poms on this Dôen sweater! The Phoebe basket is also my latest obsession - casual enough for the

  • Woohoo! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting this video for Ace & Jig Fall 17 x Vogue. Brooklyn and Portland-based Ace & Jig is a beautiful womenswear brand built, designed, created by and for women — and when I say women, I don't mean a cookie-cutter or singular type of woman. The Ace & Jig woman is diverse, cool, creative, tomboy, chic, ageless, and as colorful as the

  • For years now, as a fashion model, I've learned and kept recipe lists of ways to keep my diet clean and healthy, all while remaining exciting and fun. I'd really love to post more of these clean recipes to share with you my passion and inside-scoop that I have both as a French foodie girl and model. Today I made a refreshing mint lime virgin spritzer, a perfect drink for warmer

  • The Dôen SS 17 campaign is here! And, It's our ANNIVERSARY! I wrote this article an entire year ago, after DÔEN's first collection to ever launch came out. I remember feeling so grateful to have worked with such an uplifting, beautiful team and brand. Little did I know that that feeling would continue to span for an entire year, and that I would be able to develop a deeper love for this

  • #StonedFox interview with Alex Noiret I've known and admired Chloe Chippendale (the mastermind behind Stoned Immaculate Vintage, photographer & megababe creative) for a few years now, so when she asked if I would be a part of her #StonedFox interview series, I couldn't resist. I drove up to her sunbathed home in the Hollywood hills, where we chatted and took a few Polaroids.  She, along with her 70's-inspired vintage collection and

  • WHOA I'M LATE BUT HAPPY NEW YEAR! (It's nights like these that I'm able to align my thoughts into fluid streams of written words, making more sense than during the day. Mixing and whirling with the noise of the world, my thoughts become muddied, but at night, it is quiet. I'm sitting here in my living room as Scott and I take turns editing a project for my beloved Dôen family. We

  • Not only was I able to take Scott with me to France this past summer, but I also had the chance to take bohemian crochet-swimwear brand All That Remains Love with me for the ride. Working as a duo (our newest project called OnLifeBeauty — just released two weeks ago!) Scott and I pranced around France, photographing some of my favorite childhood locations all while wearing beautiful and intricate crochet, macrame

  • IT'S OUT! Scott and I have been working on On Life Beauty for a little under a year now — it's a project that we hope to grow with the years to come, growing and creating beauty as we grow together, yet individually, as a couple. Our goal with OnLifeBeauty is to intertwine our skills and bring beauty to brands through photography, art direction, editing, branding, modeling, and connections. This

  • The Dôen FW 16 campaign is here! A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to work with some of my favorite people and be a part of Dôen's new fall winter campaign. (Ironically enough, the shoot took place at the Angeles National forest, a short drive from where my U.S. life all started, in the foothills of La Canada!) It is always such an honor to work with Dôen,

  • It's OUT! It's always a good day when I end up working with familiar faces, and working with the Ban.do team on their latest #HaveFunInThis campaign was a good day indeed!  Brigitte Sire is one of my favorite photographers to work with, and believe it or not, the first time I ever worked with her was for Velvet Tees when I was 16. Since then, Brigitte and I have shot together at

  • Scott and I had the pleasure of teaming up with ALDO and their new #AldoMovesMe campaign, featuring the "Biacci", a beautiful pair of pointed-toe flats with a mirrored block heel. Paired with one of my favorite dresses from Shop Doen, I felt like the most comfortable, elegant, beautiful woman. This outfit was perfect for a Sunday evening stroll with Scott, where we discovered Glendale's Brand Library and Art Center (the most gorgeous, Indian-influenced

  • Scott and I explored the French countryside one day while we were on the hunt to find as many castles (Castle Blog post here!) as we could. As we drove by quaint little towns, twisting and turning through winding streets of tall, lush trees and knee-length grass, we stumbled upon this peaceful meadow of grazing cows and purple flowers. Because the road was narrow, we parked our car further down the road

  • As you all might know, I talk about beauty a lot ( #onlifebeauty ). Not the type of beauty that covers magazines, or the products and clothing that we cover ourselves with, but real, unfiltered, magical beauty of LIFE! It seems as we grow into adults, we lose the ability to remain humble and curious, for fear of seeming "ridiculous", "naive", or "happy go lucky". I know this to be

  • Scott and I found a castle ! A real-life castle! My grandmother was looking through a box of old photos, and out fell a piece of paper that had a castle on it, titled "Chateau Roquetaillade". It looked medieval and beautiful and it was what Scott had always dreamt of seeing. When we first started dating, for example, I remember spending four hours with him researching castles that we would dream

  • We are back in the Golden State! After a month of traveling through France, it feels good to come home to our own beds, our cute little apartment and the life that we've built over here on the West Coast. We had such a beautiful time in France and are so grateful for the time we had to spend with family! Scott had never been to France and had never met

  • Comme ça? Shot by Scott Vance  (We found an arrangement of beautiful ribbons of light seeping through a few cracks in the window.

  • Where in the world are we?! So, here I am. It's about 11:30 in the evening and I'm laying cozy in bed next to Scott, who's working on an online project. We're in bed, but not just any bed - we're in the most beautiful bed within the most precious walls belonging to my beloved grandparents, who live in the South of France, in a little town called Le Pyla. We're here!

  • Marie Claire France and US just featured me as one of the best 15 fashion bloggers to follow! I am so surprised, and also so honored. My dad actually had sent me an email this morning saying "look what I found!" (thank you dad!).

  • HI EVERYONE! I hope all of you are having a great beginning of summer. I'm honored to show you guys the new Doen SS16 collection that I shot about a month ago. Every shoot with Dôen so far has been magical and filled with light, love, animals, chickens, babies, and family. What more could a girl want?! Scroll down to see a behind-the-scenes video shot by Scott Vance (my husband!), along with photos shot

  • A few weeks ago, Scott and I shot with photographer Brigitte Sire and stylist Jardine Hammond. We hiked a short ways up to a sunny, grassy hilltop (that magically had a pond sitting on it), and played groovy music as we danced and jumped around. It was probably one of the funnest shoots I've had, and one of the easiest, too. "Be in love with your husband!" Easy. Hope you enjoy! XX   We

  • Shooting Redondo & Bolier's "Every Single Piece" A little over a year ago Scott and I shot this music video for House DJs Redondo & Bolier's "Every Single Piece" with some of our favorite people Easton Schirra and Spencer Byam-Taylor. It's crazy to think that that was the first time we'd ever met, because I feel like we've been friends for so long now. I love them to pieces. And, it's also

  • Maybe you're like me. I recently realized a big portion of the people I was following on Instagram were people that I maybe shouldn't have been. Not that those people had done anything inherently bad or unfavorable at all, but I realized all of the comparing, judging, and self-deprecating that was going on as I'd scroll on through my newsfeed was unnecessary and self-inflicted. Why was I doing this to myself?

  • A few weeks ago, Scott and I shot our first all-film editorial together up in Ojai. I had driven past these beautiful fields of blooming flowers a few weeks prior, while on location for a different shoot, and saved the address knowing that I wanted to take Scott back there. We only had an hour to shoot, and one pair of converse, but off we went . . . Thank you to

  • I was recently asked, in an interview, about who the most inspiring woman in my life is. While more often than not I would typically reply "my grandmother", because my grandmother really has had a huge impact on my life, this time around I couldn't help but so obviously feel that my mother was the one to look towards. Especially as the years go by, I increasingly find myself being

  • A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with one of my friends Kim Genevieve, who is also an incredible photographer that brings the most mundane objects and scenery to life. That's not to say that there was anything mundane about this shoot's particular location, which was The Hammer museum's "The Curtains" exhibition by Korean artist Yunhee Min. This was (surprisingly) my first shoot with Kim, and (surprisingly)

  • A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot for Erin Fetherston with Ms. Hellin Kay behind the camera. We shot at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel in Santa Barbara, which is a gorgeous hotel overlooking bushes of Bougainvilleas and private beaches. It was fun to come back to this sunny spot, because the last time that I'd shot there was years ago with Bruce Weber for Abercrombie. And

  • Shooting Trendi Magazine with Dani Brubaker Woot Woot! Scott and I recently had the opportunity to shoot for Trendi Magazine (I actually shot for Trendi almost 5 years ago with miss Hailey Clauson, which is crazy - time flies!). The story is titled "Just Married" and was shot by Dani Brubaker, a really great photographer and person. It was our first time actually meeting Dani, though we ended up having quite

I had so much fun on this shoot, and am so grateful to have had this opportunity to shoot among some other really great women. Shooting with Michel & Ayako is always a pleasure, and it is always exciting to arrive on set and wonder what the inspiration for the day will be. Every shoot so far has been drastically different,

  • SHOOTING DÔEN SS 16 IT'S HERE! Earlier in January I shot with photographer Hilary Walsh for Dôen, a new ethically-run, woman-run, modern-bohemian line based here in Los Angeles, started by two sisters named Katherine and Margaret! It was a long, beautiful day shooting in the Santa Barbara area ; first we shot on a ranch, and then the beach. The cold would nip at our noses, however the entire shoot felt cozy because the

It was an honor to have been booked for this job, and I am so happy with how the campaign turned out. I want to give a big thank you to Johanna Dauphin (turns out we have so much in common - both of our grandparents live

  • SO, I am not exactly one to know moderation. I'm an all-or-nothing type girl, especially when it comes to the way that I work and the way that I work-out. And eat, sleep, and live. I tend to push and give my all until I become burnt-out, tired and swing the other way on the pendulum. Although in some circumstances this has given me a lot of front-end stamina to push

  • Desert Bridals + Joshua Tree The photos are here!!! A big thank you to Monika Ottehenning for shooting desert bridals of Scott and I in the freezing cold (but beautiful) Joshua Tree. I'd never really mentally planned out what I wanted my bridals to look like (let alone wedding), but knew that I wanted to be surrounded by nature, and not the beach (haha — I'm not really a beach girl,

  • CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I can't. In fact, I hadn't realized that our fourth month of marriage passed until I started counting back how many months I had left to send out all of my thank-you cards (before I am labelled super-rude). To be fair, I've been including little illustrations for each thank-you note and so, it's been taking a while. That along with life.  So

  • Shooting Swiss Cashmere, my First Fragrance Campaign ∇ It's out!!! Last year I shot a fragrance campaign called "Noble Simplicity" for Swiss Cashmere by Michel Comte. This was my first fragrance campaign and it was an absolute honor and joy to be there. Michel and I had just shot a story for Vogue Italia, and a few months later I was booked on this job. As a model, it's jobs like these that are the

  • NOVELLA ROYALE FW MOROCCO IT'S OUT! This past summer I was able to go on an incredible trip to Morocco with my friends Easton Schirra and Spencer Byam-Taylor. The trip was sponsored by Novella Royale, and I am so grateful for every moment that we were able to have, between the many chicken tagines and riding dromedaries through the Sahara desert (amongst many other moments which I will write about below,

  • Woo! The new Marais USA campaign is out! Marais is one of my favorite shoe brands created by Haley Boyd, an ultra-chic woman from New York, who now lives in Los Angeles. I was delighted when she asked me to model for Marais, because I'd been eyeing the shoes and the French-influenced brand for awhile. Shot by Kathryna Hancock and styled by Clare Mukherjee.  ∇ ( Fun Fact: I'd never actually shot

  • MY REVIEW FOR BROOKLYN THE MOVIE: WHY I LOVED IT SO MUCH Last week Scott and I went to go see Brooklyn the movie. It's about an Irish girl who immigrates to America (specifically Brooklyn, New York) in the 1950's and falls in love with an Italian plumber. The love story is unexpected in some ways (for her, and probably for us too) but so romantically beautiful and heart wrenching at once. I came out of the

Going through these photos makes me cry every single time, and I am so

  • This is a continuation to my story, here and here, leaving out many details but trying to get to the point (maybe later on I'll write a book, and maybe a book is not what you want right now, so I'll leave it at this). There are many highs and lows, but in no way is this a sob story. This is a fantastic life and journey, and the lows

My grandmother didn't actually go or stay on the beach for very long, but when

  • SO you guys, I recently had the opportunity to go on an amazing trip to Morocco. Novella Royalle flew me out to shoot with some of my really great & talented friends, Easton Schirra and Spencer Byam-Taylor. It was two weeks of non-stop chicken tagines, kitties, beautiful cities, and taking photos. I tried to write as much as I could along the way, and here's part one of the diary.

  • Dades Gorges After a long day trekking through the Atlas mountains with our driver Ali, we finally arrived at our hotel in Dades Gorges (pronounced 'Daddy's Gorgeous!'). The hotel, Kasbah Tizzarouine, rested on this beautiful, relatively big piece of  land with a building for a kitchen, resting area, bedrooms, pool, etc. It was an oasis and what's more - there was absolutely no one in sight. Which for us, meant shooting

If you guys read the first post of Early Beginnings, I explained how I was scouted and how I started modeling with Ford Models in LA.

  • Hey guys! So yesterday I shot a really cool editorial with one of my favorite teams. Sean Knight was styling, Erin Moffett was over at makeup, and Bethany Brill did her magic at hair! Lensed by photographer James Perry, the whole theme of the shoot was 70's bohemian rock-chic. I've been having a lot of 70's inspired shoots lately, and I'm digging it. I feel that the 50-60-70's coincide well with my aura and so, it's

Always. Which is actually really

  • I am so excited to share with you these series of photos that photographer-director Jimmy Marble & I shot for the new SXSW (a music festival) posters. Just when I think that I've done just about every type of shoot possible, I'm proven wrong. I spent half the day jumping & falling sideways on a trampoline (which resulted in severe whiplash. Do not try at home).  Jimmy is a bubbly,

  • What's a casting? Sure, you've probably heard about castings from America's Next Top Model, or some other reality T.V. show where the models run around searching for their locations like a scavenger hunt. But is it really like that? and what is a casting? A casting, or a "go-see" is a big part of a model's career, especially when they're first starting out. Castings are job opportunities where the model goes to meet

It wasn't about me. There wasn't a

  • ∇∇∇ A couple of days ago, the day after I shot Vogue, actually, I was booked to shoot for Mirage Magazine, which is a semi-annual super-cool, fresh, 'raw', film-photography  fashion magazine. Actually, I'd call it more of an art magazine because the whole concept of their shoots is that they only shoot vintage- it's not about the clothes or brands. It's about the beauty and art. Which I love. Henrik Purienne,
