I recently shared the exciting announcement of Mai new show "Steampunk'd" on GSN and I never got the chance to thank everyone so much for the positive feedback and support for the show! As promised, I wanted to share some behind the scene pics with you guys for each look behind this stunning shoot for the promotional pictures on the show.
Let's talk about this beautimus look!
It all started when I shared with Daniel Musto that we had to pay homage to the Victorian roots I first fell in love with when I discovered Steampunk. Noogie Thai (my Vietnamese hair ninja) took one look at this pic and said just two words: "Hair Lace!" So in come a bunch of extensions, some Paul Mitchell products and a flat iron, and out comes some crunchy hair that makes me crave ramen noodles. (Ooh, have you ever taken the sauce packet from the bag and sprinkled it over popcorn? You're welcome.)
Uzmee, my.... what should I call her...oh. How about Mai Makeup Panda. (Even though she comes from Mongolia, has nothing to do with pandas, she just fucking talks about them all the time. "I want to be reborn as a panda." Yes, she said that.) begins to chisel Mai ramen noodle bowl round face and knows I've always wanted to be a "ginger". So she granted Mai wishes with curry carrot soup brows. Yum.
Yellow happens to be Mai favorite color..the color of joy. ;) These yellow fun dots picked up the accent of the gold threads on the dress and shoulder harness. Cool way to try this is to dampen a q-tip head, dip directly into colored shadow of your choice, and plot exactly where you want on your body or face. Boom, perfect polka.
So here's the final look!
Anyway, hope you guys enjoyed the look as much as Mai team did. As a woman, it's a blessing to be able to fantasize with fashion because there are so many dimensions to our personality, and they each deserve a different style.
Ok, so you may not walk outta the house with hair lace, (but if you do, call me cuz I'm your +1), but you can experiement with small details of fun colors and shapes from your makeup to your outfit. Why not, right?
