San Remo is a small Italian town just across the border and an hour away from Monaco. Perfect for shopping Italian food and a photo shoot on its ancient cobblestoned streets. German photographer Steve Kay and his team had invited me and few models from Frankfurt to shoot some of Frankfurt’s latest upcoming designs.
The team set up in a quiet corner by the grand Casino San Remo and the make up girls got to work transforming us with their creative brilliance. I have to admit these girls are TOP and would recommend them to anyone looking for make up artists who are extremely professional, fun and energetic to work with, and who give a shoot that dash of something extra!
Jules and Nina looking gorgeous…
Mysterious and beautiful Nidia…
Coffee break – We definitely needed it after all the hard work yes balancing in sky high stilettos on ancient Italian cobblestone streets does count as a work out. True to form – real Italian cappuccini mmm…
Looks more like a vintage tea party with our hair accesories.
Make up artist Laura doing a few touch ups..
A local Italian photographer Daniel came across our little posse and took a few pics with his polaroid camera and took a few vintage shots: (www.davidtiniusrossi.carbonmade.com, he is working with Gabriele Rigon in Italy). Love the vintage look!
The restaurant owners were so kind and helpful all through our shoot and wherever we went people stopped and helped. We almost felt a little famous with so many requests for photos and extra cameras flashing. A big thank you to Shu’ Noseda just by the San Remo Cassino – great cappuccino!
Nina, Jules and I in front of the Chiesa San Siro
A big big thank you to the team: Alex – who kept us laughing and made sure everything ran smoothly, Lena and Laura – for transforming us with your brushes and skills, and Steve for putting it all together, the photos and all the hard work! You guys are fabulous!
