A couple of weeks ago I got to be a part of an awesome shoot for the upcoming Oceans 8 film with Warner Brother and Roxy Burger. I have always been a fan of the Oceans 11 franchise; I mean how dreamy is George Clooney? Then last year I saw the trailer for Oceans 8- Danny’s rebellious sister Debbie decides to stage the most fashionable heist in history with 7 other kick ass women. I could not wait for the movie release, and when Roxy asked me if I wanted to take part in a local Oceans 8 inspired fashion shoot, my answer was “Hell Yes”!
The idea behind these pictures and fashion films (you can catch them on Roxy’s website over here) is that even though it is called Oceans 8 there is definitely a 9th woman featured in the film- Lady Fashion of course! The fashion in the movie is so awesome that we wanted to re-create it for each character in the movie, with our own playful take on things. Sarah Mitchell styled us for the shoot(and she also did my hair!), and I feel like she hit it spot on for my character- Daphne Kluger, an air-headed celebrity that is the target of the heist.
Being a celebrity, Daphne gets to walk on many red carpets looking fabulous, so Sarah picked this beautiful Bride&Co dress for me- I love it! It’s very sexy because it’s a boobtube, but I loved the touch of class that the black lace brings to the dress. We then picked these Jimmy Choo sunglasses which are just FABULOUS (I kinda want them as well) to add a little bit of drama to the shoot. Sarah finished the look of this chocker necklace- I felt like a celebrity indeed in this outfit!
For my make-up, I called on one of the best artists at Urban Decay Menlyn because I just always love the way Fafa does my make-up! We went for a crimson red lip and a classic winged liner- just what you need for a red carpet. I loved being part of this cool shoot and you can watch of all of the fashion films below! The movie hits theaters this Friday- are you excited?
