We’ve been waiting with great anticipation for what feels like eons, and now the book I worked on (making photographs, of course!) with Molly Sims is out this week! Hooray! It’s called The Everyday Supermodel and you can get your own copy here. The book covers health and beauty, fitness and fashion, and, really, the best thing—all kinds of Molly’s super-honest girl talk throughout. We were planning shoots as she and Tracy O’Connor were writing the content and it was so much fun to get to be in on dreaming up the book from scratch.
I learned a ridiculous amount about hair and makeup and fashion on the shoot, like: your bag can wear its own scarf! I am still marveling over that one!; how to actually pronounce chignon and let it roll off your tongue; how supermodels tuck their shirts in on the side not right in the front; and that Molly Sims actually looks adorable wearing a garbage bag (which leads me to the conclude that being able to rock a garbage bag is the sign of a true supermodel), among other things in a dizzying list. You should read the book! Here are some of our favorite photographs from the book and behind the scenes, in no particular order:
(Also: how gorgeous is the light at Tracy Anderson’s studio?!)
Izzy helped out with the shooting and morale. This photo didn’t make the book, of course, but it was the actual last shot from the fashion shoot, secretly entitled “how to look like a celebrity.”
Courtney snapped this photo of Molly and me “working.” It’s my favorite one anybody’s taken of the two of us.
Congratulations, holy moly and hooray, Molly! Tracy O’Connor (writing), Courtney Hale (Molly’s assistant who was the shoot producer), Joey Maalouf (makeup magic), Adriana Tesler (hair!), Rebecca Klein and Martina Gordon (stylists for our fashion and cover shoot), Shawn Corrigan (first A/C and digitech), Angel Ramos (photo assistant), Clark Perry (our p.a.), Todd Parker (b.t.s. video), Matthew Manus (husband and helper), and Izzy (first assistant pup!): you guys are all amazing. Thank you so much for all your hard work and expertise and for bringing the best kind of good energy to this project every single day, on set and off.
