This past week I worked with Ethiopian beauty,Weyniwho I found to be simply gorgeous so I was thrilled with the opportunity to work with her. I thought I would try my hand at doing beauty, which is something I never really have done. I have done many portraits, but not beauty. Fortunately I had the assistance of a fantastic team; make up artist,David Velasquezand hair stylist, Gilbert. Together I believe we created beautiful work.
This series is with the lovely Nigerian born model,Obiageliaku Anusionwuor Obi for short, wearing Lee & Lani Swimwear and make up byMonica Salena. Obi and I go way back and it's always a pleasure and much fun working with her and she is definitely capable of bring up the heat in the swim wear line.
Everyone who knows me know my favorite 3 fashion models of all time are Iman, Naomi Campbell andJason Oliveand I had the pleasure of working with Jason a couple of years ago. Jason has now transitioned into acting and is starring in the new Tyler Perry dramedy,For Better or Worsewhich premieres on November 25, 2011 on TBS. With full force, Jason is coming at us and I'm quite sure big things are heading his way. I'm excited to see the outcome and wishing him much success with the show.
