Nerry for Distinction Magazine

The new issue of Distinction Magazine hit stands this week with long time MW model Nerry L.  We have known Nerry forever.. meeting her at the very beginning of both of our careers.  George Kartis took over her development and sent her around the world and back to NY where she has worked for national clients, top photographers and designers.  We are lucky to have  her back home in Richmond to book her on fashion projects like this one.

Distinction Magazine is a Hampton Roads upscale lifestyle magazine that covers everything from fashion to cars to travel to cuisine and more. We LOVE when they call us for models . They are awesome to work with and we can always count on a lovely editorial.

Shot at historic Fort Monroe by longtime client Keith Lanpher with styling by Trudy Lancaster ( who was a MW favorite model back in the day).

True Beauty, In Purple

Purple was my favorite color as a kid. I had purple clothes, sneakers, book bags, you name it. My mother would buy my sister and I matching clothes, she would get blue, I would get  purple.  As a woman in her 40’s I’ve outgrown that preference (basic black works best now) but the amazing color story of this shoot brought me right back.

Take a look at these fantastic images by Monica True  .  Based out of DC, Monica is a fashion and beauty shooter with not only an amazing vision, but the technical know- how to make that vision come to life.   Model is our  Julia N. (yes with long nails) looking as gorgeous as ever. Spectacular Makeup by the super talented Lisa Carter Mcphee, Hair by Lisa Anderson and those nails!!  Manicure by Titilayo Bankole .

The Waiting is Over!


So what did you think??  The premiere of Scouted came on tonight and we thought it was SO FUN!  Although Richmond scenes were only shown in the super trailer at the end (don’t worry , we are  in future episodes ) we loved watching  Paige Parks and Kristen Kotik find their models and bring them to NY.  Lots of drama, makeover fun and some over the top personalities, right?  Do you think Scott Lipps at One Management made the right decision?

Both girls were super cute, and we wish them the best!!! I’ll make sure to give you a heads up when the Richmond girls are headed north!




Scouted Press Interview on WRIC Today!

Watch me “um” my way through a noon news interview here!  Looking forward to the premiere tonight!   10PM on E!

We Have Amazing Kids in the Midwest!

This summer we decided to produce a promo piece for our growing children’s division in our Milwuakee/Chicago office.  Todd Wright, who many of you know as a great photographer, but is also a talented film director,  agreed to come to Milwaukee and spend the day filming our precious little munchkins.   We took over an old fashioned campground on a gorgeous summer day and let the kids do their thing.  Thanks to Krystyn Johnson for hair and makeup magic, and Kristin Balistrieri for great wardrobe styling. Here is the edited version of the MWMW Kids having a great time.

Shout Out to Ledbury

This weekend is a big shopping weekend. And with that in mind, I’m going to implore you to get some of that holiday shopping done by buying local!
One way to do that is to get the man in your life looking smart, by stopping by Ledbury.  Paul Trible and Paul Watson, (the two cute guys in the first pic) are making quite a name for themselves by creating an amazing men’s shirt, keeping in mind the tailoring of Savile Row and the shirting of Jermyn Street.  They have been booking talent from us, like Danny , Jordan, and Nick for for over a year, and we love working with them!  Their shirts are to die for and make the perfect gift, so head down to their new shop at 117 South 14th Street, next to La Diff furniture store and get to shoppin’!
