1960s Series- Bye Bye Birdie

As films and clothing from the 1960s are an integral part of who I am as a stylist and filmmaker, this will be the first in an ongoing series on my blog. Today we did a shoot with my friends Alex and Nicole as well as myself. This is the first shoot set in the style of a giddy Ann Margaret from Bye Bye Birdie. This film's campiness is pure gold. I aspired to be as confident as Ann Margaret in this film as a child.  For Al's look I wanted her to be luxurious yet comfortable. Just because you're laying around doesn't mean you can't be glamorous.

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!!! OMG, Ann Margaret was amazing in this particular film. I used to sing and dance in my room trying to be her when I was a young girl. Alex looks amazing and represents this genre beautifully here, great styling on this, well done. Wonderful photos Nicky too! What a great concept to pursue. Cannot wait to see more.
