Vintage inspired makeup is my favourite. I love the classic beauties that have graced the Hollywood screens. That's why I jumped at the chance to work with modern vintage pinup model Gemma Vendetta.
Gemma contacted me with the task of taking her back in time, transforming her into a Hollywood movie star. With the help of Andy G and his talented camera work I think we succeeded in our task!
When approached with the project I asked Gemma to tell me a bit about her ideas and inspiration for the shoot.
My love of vintage runs deep through my veins and as a result, I wanted to be part of a photography experiment that was inspired by George Hurrell's era during the 1930s and 1940s. Drawing my inspiration from vintage Hollywood glamour and a love of nostalgia, being in front of the lens in a character that I feel I was 'meant' to be - I am able to transcend time, I feel confident, beautiful and truly alive. This, is where I was destined to belong. Thanks to Kristy Bassett's amazing makeup artistryskills, and Andy G Williams photography - I am able to be part of the magic and intrigue of vintage-inspired photography.
