Earlier in the summer, W Magazine gave me the mission of wandering Brooklyn with last NYFW's show haunts as my inspiration: anyone who was paying attention might remember the outrage that ensued at being called to the outer borough for the Alexander Wang and Opening Ceremony Shows.....the tweets, the instagrams, the snark! Never mind that many of the editors and showgoers now live in this neighborhood..... hahaha.
I do like Brooklyn so it was fun to shoot this with my friend Julia. I'm usually in Brooklyn to visit my friends but every time I'm around, I'm surrounded by characters. That is to say, I blend right in. For once. It's a quaint feeling, really. Not one I'm used to anymore.
I'm wearing a (bootleg) Seditionaries T-Shirt, La Fille d'O Lingerie, TAO Comme des Garcons skirt (similar here), Margiela Tabi Boots, ASOS Bag*. Beauty notes: I'm wearing Tom Ford Foundation, Anastasia Brow Pencil, NYX Blush in Taupe, MAC Lady Danger Lipstick, and Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black. It's shoppable below:
Go pick up the September Issue on newsstands now! Cover girl is Rihanna, who I am, of course, a fan of.
This isn't the last of me and W Mag pairing up, but you'll have to check back soon to see what we're up to next. See ya.
