I Wanna Be on Top!

America's Next Top Model that is! This past weekend, I participated in an America's Next Top Model birthday party. It was pretty much my dream come true. And these girls were psyched to be models. If you watch the show, you know that every week, the contestants participate in challenges. These 12 year olds had two challenges: 1) To make wedding dresses out of toilet paper, and 2) To design a clothing company and design two outfits using fabric. It was awesome. And I was their esteemed "noted fashion photographer." Here is a silly photo of the birthday girl in one of her outfits:

I can't help loving America's Next Top Model; I have been a faithful viewer since it started. I'd say it was my guilty pleasure, except, frankly, I don't feel guilty about it. So, of course I found it relatively easy to transition to VH-1's The Shot, about aspiring fashion photographers. There has only been one episode so far but it's fascinating watching the photographers work it - how they shoot, how they treat their models, their different styles. I'm excited to see how things play out.

I've been super busy editing this past week which is why I haven't posted in a few days. I should have more up in the next couple of days. And next week I take off on a little road trip/vacation/photo expedition, which I am REALLY looking forward to. If you haven't driven cross-country yet, I highly recommend it!
