Stay Chic Chanel!
Tell me what you think...
When Lauren Conrad tweeted last year that she was coming out with a book 2, I got really excited. For those wondering "who the hell..." LC was the star of the hit MTV reality show "The Hills" and unlike all her cast mates she was the good girl (besides Whitney who left a season prior) with her eyes on the prize. Because of Lauren we went backstage at every fashion show/ event and showed us rookies what to expect as an intern in the industry. Last year she came out with her first novel "LA Candy" a narrative on young hollywood drama. I really enjoyed the first book and was disappointed with the end....well not merely disappointed per say but it left me in much suspense. (Duhhh...thats the objective of an author) Despite what people are saying about her, I support everyone with potential and drive and I would urge most of my readers to pick up the book.... its not what you're thinking, its nothing about her life or a biography. Im excited about "Sweet Little Lies", cant wait to see what happens to connivating Madison smh "This is why you need to get the book lol"... FYI she also has a style book coming soon. Keep you posted!
In every sphere of life a girl needs a pair of boots (or booties) that is cute, comfortable and stylish to every extent. Comprehensively, to accomplish these desires, designers have drained their creative juices on a new casual "it-boot" for the typical girl on the run aiming for the punk/rock look. So if you happen to hear the footsteps of an army creeping up behind you stay calm, please donot panic as this will serve as eye candy to the fashionistas with a special place in their heart for vintage inspired footwear. Combat boots have been the "It-Boot" for months now...We've seen Rihanna, Keri and Angela Simmons spotting this trend as well as local highend retailers ;Urban Outfitters and Steve Madden. The best thing about wearing the lace up vinatge inspired combat is that a girls choice of clothing will be versatile, I mean everything from jeans to dresses and blazers to tshirts.

Solange Knowles is inspired by everything retro she has made it clear with her choice of music and also her personal style. Ofcourse the iconic Minnie will spark her interest. A few months ago Solo did an interview with blender magazine where she dressed up as minnie mouse. She pulled it off...
Designer Jeremy Scott is also channelling his inner minnie threw his mickey/minnie inspired ensemble worn by Rihanna on the set of her latest music video "Hard". She wore everything from her helmet, bullet bra and super super short cut-off shorts. We all know that Mariel Hann (Rihanna's Fashion Stylist) worked on this shoot a woman of great style so this is a definate co sign.
June Ambrose Stylist Extradinorie!

Driven, innovative and complex, did you say a sentence or adjectives? I like adjectives better :)
2. When did you realise that Fashion Photography was your calling?
During my freshman year in college I worked at the Gap and during that time I was developing an eye for fashion.
One of the members of the visual merchandising team was a photographer, and me I fell in love with the art, and I knew
this is something I wanted to do.
3. What is your inspiration?
I am inspired by everything and anything from films, music and even every day people I meet on the street, but right now
I must be honest when I say Rhianna is one of my current inspirations. I respect the fact that she is staying true to her art and doing
what makes her happy. Her style is dark and edgy and I love that.
4. Name 2 people in the industry you would like to work with and why.
Well Rhianna for one, I'm pretty sure that was obvious and also male model Chad White, he's represented by Major Models
I've seen his work and I just think he brings something fresh and new to the industry.
5. How do you perfect your craft as a photographer?
By not conforming to industry standards, Fashion photography is an art form and you can't put any limitations or restrictions on art.
The funny thing is I actually watch more films than I read fashion magazines. I like to watch films by Italian Horror director Dario Argento,
His movies are all about angles and colors.
6. Give us a summary of your work.
I have shot for agencies like Vision and L.A and Boss, as well as MTV personalities. I really enjoyed working with Male Model turned actor Drew Van Acker at the time that I shot him he was represented by Vision L.A.
7. As a fashion photographer you have an exceptional eye for ..................?
black and white photography, I feel that black and white photos are timeless, and always convey a lot of emotion
8. Where do you see your self professionally in the next 5 years?
To be honest I don't know because I have always been involved in different aspects of art, such as acting and even hip-hop dancing
but it will definitely be art related. I'm not your typical blue collar kind of guy
9. How can interested readers get intouch with you?
Well my website should be up shortly, but for the time being feel free to drop me an e-mail, I am always open to feedback
Alevns212@aol.com and remember "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words".
