Photo by Kelly Kagen
Aria Alpert is a talented stage actress and lovely woman (in all senses of the word) whose make-up I've done several times over the years. I always thought that she naturally had the most amazing "retro" or "period" vibe with her ivory skin, big eyes, soft natural curls and perfect bowed lips, so one day we decided to play around a bit and really go for that look. She and her friend Kelly Kagen, who took these photos, both brought along some great vintage clothing and I think the shots came out pretty cool. I did tweak them a little after the fact to even further drive home the feeling of an old photo.
Aria also writes a gluten-free, dairy-free, mostly vegan, foodie cooking blog (whew!) called Organic Snob. Do check out her healthy yet deliciously yummy recipes. http://organicsnob.blogspot.com/
