“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched-along with body -making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”ANNE CHRISTIAN BUCHANAN
In continuation with the theme of the first story of Brooklyn Days, Rozelle wanted the images to be very much about shape, flow , light and shade, blending of culture and race, love, emotion ,eyes(b seen) and, hearts (b love). The analogy of the balloons is symbolising a temporary state of shape like with pregnancy.
“On a beauty perspective the vibe was a relaxed Monroe. “Through my eyes , a look that really suits Emilie is a nod to Marilyn . I thought it would be interesting to see her at this stage of a pregnancy ” said Rozelle.
Her hair was styled in fallen curls, giving the feeling of a relaxed dropped look. For the make, up a matt base by Nars was used, followed by a translucent loose powder by Mac. A bone eyeshadow by Mac was swept across the lid with a taupe eyeshadow applied in the socket and a black eyeliner flick using Diorshow on stage Liner. Lastly black false eyelashes by Dufflashes were added to the lashline with little gems to give a modern twist to a classic Monroe makeup. And of course after a touch of blush in Vintage by tromborg the lips were painted in Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick 1 Le Rouge.
