“Stolen Moments” with my favorite Royal

Step aside, Kate Middleton. My favorite “Royal” style icon has always been Charlotte Casiraghi.  And this new “Stolen Moments” film for Gucci Cosmetics is really pure perfection.  It’s regal, timeless, and mysterious– and so beautifully fitting for the non-titled Princess of Monaco and granddaughter of Grace Kelly.   !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) {

Castle by the Sea

Once upon a time, there was a castle by the sea… This past Friday, we shot several gowns from the new Lauren Elaine Bridal collection at a magical location in Laguna Beach, CA. While I was hesitant to shoot bridal gowns at the beach, I discovered the existence of this special place, and I just

Last year I worked with Mary Chandler to design a soft, silvery gray Prom gown, with beading

Wedding Bells

On Saturday, I’ll have the privilege of witnessing one of my custom bridal gowns make it’s walk down the aisle.  I’m completely in love with this creation.  A true princess gown, with a unique vintage throw-back feel.  Encrusted with over 1000 swarovski crystal stones and tiny pearls, it’s sparkly, elegant, and definitely one of my
