Kim Yoon and Kim Teo are the duo of my dreams. Yoon is a special effects make up artist and overall beauty specialist (her fine art background makes her diverse) with an eye for discounts as a personal shopper, and her work has a creative edge to it. Teo is so intuitive that it’s as if he instructs the model via osmosis and I LOVE modelling for them. TEO 5sama.com
I actually did hire Yoon as a personal shopper/stylist and she pulled off about 50 outfits for 250USD. LOVE HER.
Every episode brings the fun of seeing what our queen stylist will conjure for me – and she NEVER gets it wrong, usually bringing one outfit per look and nailing first try. This week we went with complex “multi-braid’ wedding hair. She is awesome, and joining me was guest ‘Kijung’, who really shines on camera (perhaps a new career in the making, Sir?)^^ NICE-UH!
Today’s photo shoot was exceptionally interesting – this was taken mid-way through body painting which included plaster, powder and brush strokes to create a “mannequin” look, and the campaign involved high-end accessories handing from the body (no face shown) partially nude, very edgy. It’s intended to launch in the US at Nordstrom’s and Macy’s in 2014, and I am stoked to see the final results. I love the designers work.
Just a note about semi-nude or nude modelling – it’s like yoga, because you’re always flexing! ^^ Two birds, I guess!
I had a rough morning, but the energy of a studio is contagious.Today was Day 1 as the host of my new show at the fantastic mega-congomerate that is CJ…and I have to tell you, compared to the green rooms of other renowned networks, I felt as if I was in a hotel. I look forward to the horror that comes with seeing myself on the screen – it seems to have to be that way, hah…it has to be that way for me to improve. That is how we learn. I had fun. That is the key. My job is awesome, and everyone was incredible and professional. Oh and I wanted to take the stylist home with me. 2.5 hours of hair and make-up – but totally worth it. I go in looking like a slob and emerge sparkly.
