Behind the scenes at the St Regis Hotel in NYC, on the set of a Vanity Fair photoshoot and sitting for David Downton, wIth Carmen Dell’Orefice! Although I styled Carmen’s own hair for this shoot, I did bring our Vogue Italia wig along, for company.

Carmen always comes to set with a can of Adorn hairspray and her own brush and comb.

David gave me a sketch of Carmen and Carmen gave me another Adorn hairspray with a lovely dedication C.❤️T.

I really did damn enjoy turning Jennifer Pugh into this, a few days ago for an editorial.
A very favorite model, she’s a great performer.

On set, sometimes I’ll create a separate and personal mind process going, along with my work there, to stay focused.
[another one had arrived in the mail that morning, so she came along]

New work in the June issue of Vogue Italia, with the outworldly but very real Carmen Dell’Orefice. Shot by Greg Lotus, styled by Danny Santiago, make up by Carole Lasnier, props by David Fittin. Shot in Miami, on a scorching day.

Carmen is the only model I had ever desired to work with, before I got into fashion, so this was a real treat. She turned out to be the most disciplined, hard working, generous and polite person, with absolutely no airs about herself. In the midst of preparing her and the rest of the models, I totally stalked her every move with the corner of my eye. She must have observed my fetishistic tendencies, because she gifted me her Adorn hairspray. I asked her to sign it.
