The Oscar’s!!! It’s Hollywood’s most prestigious event and the top of the mountain in the Entertainment Industry.  The paparazzi, the gowns, the jewels, the security, the celebrities, the excitement of being in LA on Oscar night is overwhelming.  It was so cool to be in the mix at the Four Seasons Hotel, where I prepped Oscar Nominee Jed Rothstein and his gorgeous wife Mira Jacob for their stroll down the red carpet.  Jed was nominated for his documentaryKilling In the Name“.  It was an honor to be there and work with such inspiring people.


Some of my favorite products that night..

I recently had the chance to work with iconic actress Molly Ringwald.  Molly starred in Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club.   I was thrilled to do her makeup and hair while she was in Seattle.  She was in town to promote her new book Getting The Pretty Back with It Books (HarperCollins Publishers).  I love the idea that being ‘pretty’ is something we can choose to feel and cultivate, and that it doesn’t have to go away with age.

What a dream to design your own clothing line and sell it all over the world!   Nicole Richie is doing it with her line Winter Kate, and best selling Accessories line, House of Harlow.  Her style is hippy-chic, her pieces are unique and totally wearable.    I had a great time doing her makeup,  she was a doll.  We bonded over baby stuff and being new momma’s..

always setting up in odd places..

Note to self:  standing sideways to the camera is much more slimming than standing square on.

Nicole had beautiful skin, but I still used a tiny bit of foundation by FACE Atelier , a little goes a long way to create glowing skin.  She looked gorgeous!

Tegan and Sara’s new record Sainthood is officially released and has hit the shelves!  It’s the band’s sixth full length album (Vapor/Sire Records) and Spin Magazine gives it four out of five stars.  Nice work girls!

While they were in Seattle finishing up the record and playing a sold out show at the Showbox, they managed to squeeze in a two day photo shoot for the album artwork and press junket with Los Angeles photographer Pamela Littky.   I was sooo happy they called me to do hair and makeup, I’m a huge fan!  Their record ‘The Con’ is one of my favorite favorites!  We shot most everything at Ben Gibbard’s (Death Cab for Cutie) capitol hill loft, and Gasworks park.

It was magic watching Emy (super-genius art director) pull out props that she made for the shoot.  She jumped from the laptop to sewing machine, to set, back to sewing machine. Her graphic projections brought the set to life.  I can’t wait to see the other photos in print.  Especially the shots at Gasworks park, Pamela spotted a tuba player rehearsing with a Scandinavian dance troop, and ran over to borrow the instrument.  It was massive!!  Somehow, Tegan was able to navigate it for a few shots..

The show was AMAZING!  It’s no wonder they sell out venues.

Yaaay!!   You never know when you’ll see work in print, so it  feels like Christmas when you discover something new.  Seems like i’m always at Easy Street Records in West Seattle when it happens.   The Big Takeover and Sound Magazine both featured the Decemberists in the last months issues.   All the shots were  from a Portland shoot with LA photographer Autumn De Wilde .
