Vogue October 2011 (Michelle Williams cover) — ”Sparkling Personalities”

  • photographer: Patrick Demarchelier
  • fashion editor: Tabitha Simmons
  • contributing editor: Lynn Yaeger
  • bookings editor: Valerie Boster
  • makeup: Alice Lane

My most heartfelt of thanks to Patrick for the marvelous experience (and the exquisite book!) along with the brilliant Tabitha—and, of course, everyone involved behind-the-scenes—for an unforgettable day.

In the first image, Tabitha dolled me up in: Solange Azagury-Partridge diamond-and-white-gold headband. Harry Winston garnet, tsvaorite, and diamond brooch. Tiffany & Co. diamond-and-rose gold earrings. Rodarte F/W 2011 look #14 ensemble.

Pictured with my love Bip Ling in: Mannu/The Gem Palace earrings. Preen by Thorton Bregazzi F/W 2011 look #1 dress. My own Rodarte for Opening Ceremony hat. (Bippy looks ravishing in an Erdem dress and Fred Leighton jewelry.)

It was such an unforeseen bonus to catch up with old friends at Patrick’s Chelsea studio: including my dearest Bip (we first met in summer 2009 on a LOVE Magazine shoot in London), my favorite fashionfolk Lynnie (who I have always held in the highest esteem, even before we struck a friendship when I was just seventeen) and my style icon Alice Lane (she first did my makeup at David Armstrong’s home for the Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony book, Reds).

What a sparkly dream.

Thank you.

I apologize: work and travel and family have thrown a bunny wrench into the tumbling mix as of late, but I promise that I’ll be back in the online swing of things pronto pronto!

Also, please take a moment to learn about Natalia’s bighearted endeavors to build play parks in thirty-eight Russian towns through her Naked Heart Foundation.  Thanks!
