A Painting Come to Life {for YOU Magazine}

I am so excited to share the pictures from our shoot for YOU Magazine's Arts and Entertainment Issue currently on coffee tables and newsstands all over town. For this feature, I selected 4 famous works of art and dug into them a bit, unearthing the outfit from the story, texture, color and movement of the composition. Boy oh boy, was this a fantastic project for me! I'm hoping that you'll be able to tell from this picture alone which work of art each lady represents. 

Vincent Van Gogh -  The Starry Night
"Our interpretation of "The Starry Night" comes to life as a star in the flesh, a radiant celestial being floating in shimmering silver lace and a cape that sparkles a deep midnight blue."

Frida Kahlo - Self Portrait
"Our Frida Kahlo wears a bold mix of pattern, color and texture and is accessorized with chunky jewelry while fresh flowers decorate her braids."

Andy Warhol - 10 Marilyns
"Our Marilyn wears a red hot dress highlighting her beautiful curves and drips in the brightest and most dazzling vintage jewels."

Maxfield Parrish - Sleeping Beauty in the Wood

 "Our Sleeping Beauty us swathed in the understated elegance of a Grecian-like gown, delicate flowers spilling from her bodice and a goddess-like crown on her head."

A huge thank you to Chelsey Drifka, Victoria Stencil, Indigo Stoney and Jillaine Sturdivant for bringing these looks to life so beautifully. You girls were amazing! Mwa! And a thank you to Painting Pottery in De Pere for the use of their delightful little alcove. 

Read more in the mag about the life and work of each incredible artist and best of all, see these lovely ladies in print. :) Here's just a few more of the girls together.
