I am a subscriber to Vanity Fair. Every year, before the Oscar’s, they have an issue called “The Hollywood Issue”. I am always impressed with the cover photography of these issues and never fail to feel inspired after viewing it. Last year, I was inspired to do my own cover and this is what I ended up with.
This year, I was inspired to try another one and Integrity Toys’ newly revamped Fashion Royalty products were my muses.
Models: “Evermore” Vanessa in her original outfit, Workshop Elise in Mattel Hervé Léger by Max Azria, “Bellissima” Natalia in her original outfit, “After Tonight” Eugenia in Mattel “Hollywood Cast Party”, “Baby It’s You” Chip, “Black Orchid” Vanessa in Bellissima Couture gown and Jakki Peters hat.
Now…are we all set for the Oscar’s? I think so.
Yes…we went as Edith Head and a 1940’s starlet that she was designing for. Here are a few more snapshots of friends and tablemates. ( Barb , Valeska, Rich, Judy, Barb and Bev)
And the amazing Norma Desmond done by Rebecca V.
It was interesting because Edith Head designed the costumes for Sunset Boulevard so we decided to do a 1940’s style picture together and I LOVE IT!! A HUGE “Thank You!” to Bev B. for taking this photo and adding the b/w filter.
Needless to say ( but I will say it anyway), we had the best time. I had not dressed up for Halloween in ages so it was fun to do it. Now…on to the dolls
The centerpiece doll for the evening was a beautiful Eugenia!
