Adrien: Smoke and Mirrors

I got in a blog-related conversation (with blog rock stars!) at a party last weekend and I talked (too much) about what it's like to pose for outfit photos every single day. In a nutshell: YOU LEARN FAST. I am not photogenic and require approximately 11 billion photos to be taken from which I can pick out the three that don't make me look like Jabba the Hut.

Also, I do this thing where I think my head is on straight but I actually have it all cranked over to one side, like that's cute. (It's not.) Here is a dramatic reenactment of what my early photos looked like:

And here is that same photo after some extensive spinal adjustment and Photoshop:

I also sometimes have, um, attitude problems:

But, Kenny started lobbing peanut M&Ms at me and I straightened up pretty quick:

So really, all it takes is:

  • food rewards
  • a large memory card
  • spinal surgery
  • Photoshop (the kind you pay $$ for)
  • fear of looking like a slug-alien on the Internets.

Anyone can do it!

  1. Cute cute cute. I think I look like a wax figure or a mannequin half the time. Frozen in the same position, same smile, all of it.

  2. You seem like you'd be alot of fun to hang out with. But I make way better faces than you. My boyfriend says that I'm the female version of Jim Carrey. My face is very pliable and so I can come up with all kinds of crazy faces.

  3. "Make faces?" I beg your pardon, that is just how my face looks before massive amounts of Photoshop. And surgery.
