I’m so excited to share today’s editorial with you, as it was probably one of my most recent favorites to shoot. Inspired by the whirl of the holiday season, I styled 5 different dresses, each unique and distinct enough for numerous occasions that pop up this time of year, be it a black tie wedding, an office holiday party or counting down to midnight on New Year’s Eve. As you might recognize already, we shot at the Ludlow Hotel, one of my absolute favorite hotels here in the city, and it served as the perfect backdrop for a girl, on the go, running through late evenings and early mornings, from one party to the next — throwing on her earrings as she dashes out the door, her eyes fixed on the next cab whose headlights are blaring down the street. She’s fabulously late but fabulously dressed — polished but not too fussed over. This is New York after all — she can’t be too precious about things, now can she?
Huge thanks to Sachin + Babi for partnering with me on this — as always, I had perhaps too much fun playing dress up in your frocks.
