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-
I’m sitting here at the agency coming down from a crazy whirlwind of a Halloween weekend…tired and drained from 3 days of crazy fun and hard work. Even though the “Case of the Mondays” is really taking a toll on my psyche, I’m still super jazzed because today is the day I get to announce the newest addition to our Photogenics Contributors: my girl, LEORE HAYON of The Girl Habit.
I’ve just recently gotten to know Leore as more than just a model we rep. She’s a down ass chick who will go to a Grizzly Bear show with you at the drop of a hat and dance her ass off with you at her own birthday party at the Spare Room. She’ll be giving us a little peak into the very essence of LA Culture as she sees it; the fashion, music, art, and people that make LA such a rad place to be young, wild, and free.
So, stay tuned for Leore’s very first post and check her out in the latest Stussy x Lovemade promo: Heartbeat City
Yep, I’ve been working with my sister, Dylana, at the Modern Vice shoe factory here in NYC on a brand new boot! It’s called the BENNI, and it’s a new, simpler spin-off to the “Natalie + Dylana Suarez x Modern Vice” JETT boot. The JETT’s have been everywhere this fall and during fashion week. We’ve seen them on all our favorite star bloggers from around the globe, and daily I get to see images of readers styling them on Instagram. It’s time for something fresh and new. Here you have it, the BENNI!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on our new shoe! I’m excited to show you more colorways and some of our special holiday designs!
My first post here on the Photogenics blog! Why, hello there! I’m Natalie Suarez. I live in New York City and yeaaaah, I do a bunch of different things. I model, but I’ve got another thing called a blog. That’s why some call me “Natalie Off Duty“, Nat Off Duts, or just plain Nat. Really, whatever you want. I tell the story of my life. From being a young model in LA to moving to the Big Apple, without knowing anybody, and making it for my own. I’m proud to say things have really fallen into place. And yes, I love clothes. Denim cut-offs, loose knits…my style is everything from boho to rock-chic, and I’m a boots fanatic! I designed the boots I’m wearing in the photos right here in NYC. They’re called THE JETT, named after one of our all-time favorite badasses, Joan Jett. Our “Dylana + Natalie Suarez x Modern Vice” boot completes my life, and I travel with them everywhere. So there you have it. Just a tiny bit of me…a music lover, designer, and last but certainly not least…model. Can’t wait to share with you more and more bits of my life!
Even though Chloe’s off doing big things in NYC, she is and will always be a Photogenics Girl through and through. So much so, that I’ve asked her to be one of the very first guest bloggers to join our Photogenics Contributors Page set to launch early September alongside guest bloggers Charlotte Carey and Natalie Suarez of style blog, Natalie Off Duty.
