Last week, I caught up with model/blogger/photographer/skater/social media bomber, Jesse Somera to find out if he could contribute some of his paparazzi skills for the blog, and he kindly obliged. He just recently took some behind-the-scenes shots of our models at a Mike Piscitelli short film shoot for Monster Children, and I jocked them so hard I had to share. The short film should be releasing pretty soon, but in the meantime peep these candids, and make sure to check out Jesse’s blog: Mad Thirsty.
Sometimes a girl’s just gotta throw on some overalls and what better ones than her CK denims. I found mine at Wasteland…major score. Below, I’m photographed with my friend Kelley Ash and photographer Brad Elterman at the Dresden on Vermont. The photos are taken by Henrik Purienne. x Leore x
Dammit!!! Now my icy heart is all warm and melty. Phira’s pick for fashion insider fun is this amazing Disney x Barneys New York collaboration. Bust out the eggnog and menthol cigs *those that know Phira TOTALLY get this*
Valerie’s been setting up shop here in LA, seeing clients, shooting, booking, and LA’s quickly falling in love with her! She’s a really sweet Dutch girl based out of London where she’s worked with the likes of Angelo Pennetta, Ellen Von Unwerth, and Jeff Hahn.
I just recently shot a short film for Monster Children [magazine] with Photogenics models Torian, Brianna F, and Dakota recently. The story was about a group of friends and their adventures which take place in part at a motel in Koreatown where things get a little crazy. Director and photographer Mike Piscitelli was so rad to work with, and I love hanging out with the Photogenics crew. In that same week I hung out with Dani Lundquist and Valerie V. for Halloween! Always fun times with Photogenics.
Friday the 2nd was the opening of “Everyone’s a Photographer” Exhibit at the Lomography store on Santa Monica Blvd. I threw on my vintage Van Halen tee and vintage Giorgio Armani black skirt for the evening. The exhibit features the work of my friends Chad Muska, Corey Smith, and Jason Lee Parry, along with photographers Jared Everhardt, Jeremy & Claire Weiss, Natas Kaupas, Ian Ruhter, Danny Zapalac, and Laura Austin. I always have the best time at these kinds of events. Tons of friends from the industry and lots of beer is not a bad way to spend a friday night in LA if, you ask me. Afterwards, I hit up one of my favorite bars, The Thirsty Crow in Silverlake. I would definitely recommend checking out the exhibit while it’s still around. -Leore-
