Since the crush this week was Jared Leto, it seemed only fair that the mixtape love was a tribute to him and certain Claire Danes.
Long before the big time Hollywood careers they were Jordan Catalano and Angela Chase and we loved them.
It was about moments like this…
awww teenage angst, romance and kisses… they were like an emo poster couple, before emo existed… is emo still a thing?
Anyways, their love lasted one television season *shakes fist at the show cancellation* from 1994 to 1995. Since they weren’t those kind of people this isn’t going to be a full on twerk-a-licous chair dance like this…
It’s going to be a sedate slowly swaying from side to side while looking profound. Jordan and Angela this is a musical salute to you. Let a So Called Life Mixtape Love begin!
We’re still on a Frida tip, if you checked it out yesterday – there was a rather awesome Kahlo inspired shoot. However, today we are crushing on Monica Bellucci By Signe Vilstrup it’s pixel magic!
The photographic glory goes to Signe Vilstrup for Harpers Bazaar Ukraine
When we think of Frida – we do think great artist for sure, but the part of us that is more shallow than a kiddy pool on a midsummer afternoon automatically gravitates towards the Monobrow; it is a bit Gerald Samson…
Throw in the back brace, relationship drama, and assorted misfortunes – although her story isn’t a fluffy one by any stretch of the imagination – It does supply inspiration for a stunning shoot that has been lovingly lensed by Matilda Rose. The Dream team supreme behind this gorgeousness all share on their contribution to the epic-ness that is…
Dress Frou Frou Bridal Boutique Quote…
“At froufrou we pride ourselves on our individuality! We personally source each gown that we feel represents our shop and our brides! This shoot showcases our ‘The Darcy’ by Belle & Bunty – it’s a silk/satin dress with sweetheart neckline & 3/4 lace sleeves – it’s trimmed with silk satin binding.
MUA The Beauty Aisle ‘When Matilda approached me with her initial idea for a Frida Kahlo inspired shoot my reaction straight away was, ‘wow yes let’s do it! I love colour and knew this shoot would involve lots of it!
Our model, Helen has a great sense of style herself, channelling the glamour of a 50’s pinup icon from a bygone era. I gave Helen a modern version of the classic vintage look by replacing the classic red lip with a punchy orange shade from Mac called Morange.
I used a soft taupe eyeshadow with lots of mascara and a flick of black liner to add definition.
Cake Vintage Rose Cupcakes Quote… With this shoot I really wanted to include the bold orange and pinks used in the stationary, I decided to keep the plain white background of the cake and introduce the colours by making sugar succulents and vivid dahlias which are native to Mexico. The use of the braided raffia gave the cake a rustic feel.
Stationery A four letter word
“This invitation suite was inspired by the work of the late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Research and Pinterest boards were put together as inspiration and the colours and typography used reflected this. The textured and Kraft cards used was ripped at the edges and layered to give a rustic look and the colours were earthy and warm as a nod to the Mexican landscape.
The suite includes 7×5″ invitations, A5 RSVP and details card, menu, table numbers, gift tag/place card. ”
Photography Matilda Rose This styled shoot was great fun to take part in, just loved working with such a talented collective of wedding suppliers. The theme was loosely based around the great Frida Kahalo, Mexican artist and icon. We just wanted to make a set of bright, and bold images that are fun and I think we achieved that together.
And the rest are…
