FHM South Africa came out with their 100 sexiest women in the world list earlier this year…. and much to my shock and disbelief I was on it!!
Thank you to Rio for bringing me a copy of the magazine, all the way from South Africa so that I could scan in the above photograph as well as the whole page:
Yep – I beat Ke$ha, Selena Gomez, Britney (99 – she barely made it this year), Kim Kardashian, Eva Longaria and a coupe of people I’ve never heard of. I had never entered a beauty pageant before or any sort of competition like this – but thanks to a series of online votes from the interwebs at large I was honoured with an official sexy stamp which I find puzzling, amazing, delightful and with a history of childhood bullying and low self esteem, a tad bizarre.

I’ve been slacking off on blogging shoots – and although many of you probably “like” my facebook page ~ thank you for the support – I’m really honored ~ and have probably seen many of the images I’ll be posting over the next few weeks, I think that a lot of the images on the page deserve a place on the site. I can honestly say I have learnt something with every shoot I have done, and I am so grateful for the wonderful people I have been privileged to work with.
Neal enjoys taking photographs, and I enjoy being in photographs so he decided to bring me on board to tackle his first boudoir shoot and first shoot with someone there with… [ Read more ]
Andrej Pejic is the latest androgynous model to take the world by storm. Signed by storm in 2010, this 19 year old boy from Australia has been shot for a plethora of prestigious and fashionable magazines and has walked the runway for Paul Smith, Raf Simons, John Galliano and Jean Paul Gaultier where he modeled both his mens range and the show-stopper bridal piece for his female haute couture line.
Pejic, though not the norm, has been embraced into the fashion world, serving as a fresh canvas for designers wanting to further push the boundries of fashion and society. Fashion has held a recurring obsession with gender roles, mascu-femme, girls in boys clothing, boys in girls clothing… Pejic manages to fill both masculine and feminine roles and stands almost gender neutral, his height, slim hips and chiseled cheekbones making him the perfect clothes hanger.

Shot on location at the Cape Royale in 2010
In 2008 Dr Benway asked if he could take my portrait. I came across these images late last night and thought it was a shame they weren’t on the site.
The shoot was laid back and relaxed and something I would definitely do again!
A few weeks ago I found myself in Robert Miller‘s studio for an afternoon of “play.” Rob and I hoped to tackle the challenge of gothic/vampire pale – something which is extremely difficult for photographers and make-up artists to get right.
Despite the difficulty of the task, I feel that Rob and I nailed it and produced one of the better examples of gothic glam.
I used Kryolan water-based white face paint on my skin, applying it first in thick sweeping motions with MAC’s #187 brush, and then smoothing it over smaller areas with the #249 brush and buffing it into delicate skin such as around the eyes with the #227 brush. The amazing shiny lip was produced by using Hourglass “Extreme Sheen” in “Siren.” Hourglass is an amazing brand that I discovered whilst in Los Angeles last December – seek out the hourglass mascara for great definition… [ Read more ]
I kept the eyes neutral toned, and sculpted them with texture, applied some individual false lashes (I find the individual lashes look more natural as they lack the “spine” visible with a full false lash) to bring out the shape of the eyes and then matched the lipstick to the wig with MAC’s Amplified Lipstick “Girl About Town”
