oops, I read Australian and typed Italian (it's like Italian and Vogue just go together automatically) I would have thought for Australian Vogue they'd still pull out all the stops! Any Vogue is Vogue!!

I have done strange, strange editions of L'Officiel and everyone falls over themselves to help. It's like they see past the Uzbekistan part and only see the bit they want to

Oooh...I love L'Officiel. You're so lucky! How many years have you been working Stilista?

Fun to work with Milla, Softgrey. What lousy editors or production staff to give you such late notice. It seems like a famous face deserves better treatment. Here the stores would bend over backwards to help for an international talent I'm sure. Maybe it's not the same in Paris though. A big fish in an even bigger pond.

...

Well, I guess I shouldn't complain about only having three days...but still I'm exhausted after this week and still have the ubiquitous returns to do on Monday. I do disagree that the stylist has the worst post-production work to do though (as stated in other threads on TFS). The photographers I know spend hours taking film to photo labs and retouching in Photoshop.

I'm also curious...do any of you have other day jobs, not involved in the "business"?

you want 'spreads' in your book... a page on each side....front and back..
so even numbers work best...
four is usually enough and more than six can be boring...

*it's also usually a good idea to shoot at least one more than you think you need ...
because there is usually one that just isn't as strong as the rest...
and then you can drop that one...

*sigh* i so want to do full "stories" with quite a lot of looks..but i have to take all the clothes home with me...carrying them on the train an hour out of the city... taxis would cost hundreds of dollars...and messenger services get the clothes to their locations smelling like ashtrays i realize i need to move into the city..buying a car is out of the question its funny...i have a lot of male models asking me to style for them now... but i dont want to do menswear... before the test i just did i read a million editions of mens magazines because its so foreign to me but i agree it was so much fun, this stuff can really get addicting.... too bad i have school to conflict with what i want to do

it is precisely BECAUSE it was milla that the schedule was so tight...
getting time with a celeb is very very difficult...their schedules are so busy that very often you can only get a couple of hours and everyone basically has to do it whenever it is convenient for THEM...

this can mean flying to where they are, etc...
