I love summer vacation days, feeling the air and the sunshine on my skin and my toes in the sand. I photographed model Eve at a quiet cove by the beach wearing a copper-colored bikini by Alè by Alèssandra Ambrosio (who better to design the sexiest bikinis than a Victoria Secret Angel?) Eve’s white cotton cover-up with lace is by LA Hearts . So pretty.
Spring break is all about boho style and sun-kissed beauty. There is nothing like wind and salty air for perfect beach hair, sandy beaches for exfoliating your feet, and lots of natural vitamin D to bring you back to your senses after a long winter. Happy first day of Spring!
Here’s a look at my new juniors summer fashion and beauty editorial with Tèa Elbaz. Strong eyebrows, turquoise eyeliner in a cat-eye swoop, fuchsia matte lips, stripes, pops of color and vivid florals all make for easy summer style. Accessorize with bold pieces such as a cute lips purse and a lady-like statement necklace, mixed with florals and stripes, for a style update. Frame your face with bold eyebrows and pull hair back or up to show them off.Stripes are loud and proud this year so go big. Crochet crop tops and lace shorts are breezy and cool for summer. Mix patterns and colors, prints and florals, like with this sporty rash guard and skinny jeans. Let hair be natural with ponytails and skinny braids, and have fun with colorful makeup with like Tèa’s turquoise eye liner and matte deep pink lips. Metallic belts amp up the style of simple t-shirt dresses. Jean shorts and chambray shirts are summer essentials: dress them up with graphic short-sleeve pullovers, floral sneakers and a chic chain strap bag. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean style takes a vacation!
