Game of Thrones

I just worked with OONA CHAPLIN  grandaughter  of CHARLIE CHAPLIN.
It’s yet another  haute couture shooting, so we try and break the glamour by drawing inspiration from  the TV series GAME OF THRONES that Oona stars in, which is the opposite to glamour, that is for sure! The show is very dark. I created this heavily textured, undone, unwashed looking raw hairdo, using (for those of you liking this kind of textured hair), mostly a KMS product called HAIR PLAY.

I will upload  the printed version on my Facebook with more detail once its all published. Here some behind the scenes images. The shoe is wicked  by Iris Van Herpen.  The location was magic on a private property near Rambouillet France. Such a feast for the eyes with the grounds themselves  being so spectacular that they appear like a  painted back drop of a film set. Lunch was another highlight of the day laid out on the side of this sumptuous river bank.

      Great blog! Love how you are sharing your inspiration. And of course glad you are using some KMS California products too!

      Honestly though the peak into your world is really a great inspiration for all stylists and what amazing work is possible to do.
