FashizBlack cover shoot with Angela & Vanessa Simmons - Behind the Scenes

Yesterday I had the pleasure of once again working with 2 of my favorite ladies: photographer MG Oania and hair stylist Mirna Jose on the cover shoot for Paris based magazine, Fashizblack. I had never met stylist Sarah Braga before, but she definitely knew what she was doing, and was a complete sweetheart.



Gracing the cover this month are the Simmons ladies, Angela and Vanessa. Angela provided our soundtrack for the shoot, bumping the likes of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Kanye and Beyonce out of her Macbook, while I began her sister Vanessa's makeup and she talked to me about acting and the difference between living on the west coast versus the east.

I walked away feeling amazing after being able to spend the day with so many confident and driven females who love themselves and what they do. The magazine is out this upcoming Wednesday so be sure to go pick it up or check the site: http://www.fashizblack.com I'll be posting photos here as well.
