I was so thrilled to take part in this shoot and interview for Liner Magazine last month. It's a beautiful independent magazine started by a really creative and talented gal named Kelly Searle. She also acted as Photog and Hair/Makeup for this particular shoot which was even more of a treat. Here are a few screenshots but please check out the whole issue below.
We ended up with a lot of great photos - too many to use in one editorial, in fact! so perhaps I'll share a few more in the near future! Happy Monday!

Just another friendly reminder to get out and vote in the midterm elections TODAY, if you haven't already! I did my civic duty this morning and it feels so good!
Oh, and in case you are curious, you can pick up this awesome Lady Parts Justice Willow Bag over at the Orla Kiely website .
Which reminds me, I recently took place in the latest Department of Peace PSA, "BAD REPUTATION" with some amazing people like Joan Jett, Carrie Brownstein, Max Greenfield, Sia, Tavi, Alexa Chung, Lizz Winstead, Sarah Sophie Flicker and so many others. Check that out here:
Fingers crossed for good election results!

In keeping with a long-standing tradition here on my old blog, I thought I would post my Halloween costume from Friday night....
I was CHER!
Well... Cher circa early 1970's The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour to be exact
*there are many different Cher era's aren't there?! Sadly, I didn't do the best job at documenting this year's costume. You'll have to put up with my
selfies, I'm afraid! This costume was a super last minute choice, incidentally - most of the costume I had in my closet,
minus, of course, the long black wig which I found last Thursday! I did not have time nor the will to commit to that killer tan.

Happy Monday! Back with a Monday Muse fit for the week before Halloween, particularly, given her roles in 90s classics like The Addams Family and, my personal favorite, The Witches. Oscar-winning actress, model, and author... Anjelica Huston
I recently read her memoir, A Story Lately Told, and it is one of the better bios I've read in quite a while. I found it fascinating and humorous but also exceedingly tragic in places. In this book (a part one, of sorts) she talks about her childhood - growing up in Ireland as the daughter of a former prima ballerina Enrica “Ricky” Soma and the eccentric (to put it lightly) film director John Huston. She tells of how her father more or less pushed her in front of the camera as a young awkward teen and how this push, coupled with her “exotic” looks, eventually lead to a career as a fashion model. The book ends as she moves to LA in her early 20s but it's jammed-packed for such a short amount of life. The second book comes out later this year and I can’t wait!
Like many of our muses, Ms. Huston has inspired more people than I could possibly condense into one measly post...photographers, designers, actors, directors, etc, etc. One of the first being photographer, Bob Richardson. The two made beautiful work together but their romantic relationship was a less than beautiful thing. Anjelica was barely an adult and still recovering from her mother’s tragic death (Anjelica was just 16 when her mother (age 39) was killed in a car crash). Richardson, 20 years her senior, suffered from severe mental issues and took his frustrations and neurosis out on his young girlfriend. The two eventually parted ways when Anjelica made the move to LA to pursue acting but they left us with some remarkable photos.
Anjelica went on to play muse to many, including: Yves Saint Laurant, Halston, Jack Nicholson (who she was in an on and off relationship with for the better part of the 1970s and 80s)...
and, in recent years, she has been something of a muse to film director Wes Anderson as well - which is a match made in heaven, in my humble opinion...
