Earning your Stripes

I’ve been back in LA for some time now since I last posted and I apologize for the lull in content. I’ll be getting back on track here shortly as I have more photo sets to post soon.

This post goes out to the rule breakers, the ones with a little more fire than the next, the ones who were bold enough to go after what they wanted to do and did it well. My photographer friend Hannah Gweun graciously came to shoot with me in my neighborhood of Sherman Oaks recently. I met Hannah a while back on a film set we both were working on and she’s a stellar photographer and even more human being. I say that because she, like myself is dedicated to her craft in a city that will unapologetically overlook it. But yet we try try again. In essence, Hannah and I have earned our stripes, whether or not the industry will honor that we may never know.

Whatever it is you’re doing or pursuing, do it with full speed and tenacity or not at all.

Thank you for reading,

Lauren

What’s Good, Claire Underwood?

They say behind every great man is a great woman, but in House of Cards, a step ahead of every great man is an impeccably dressed Claire Underwood. I’m talking about power looks. Memorable, feminine, but strong pieces down to the heels can make you walk, talk, and stand with purpose you might not even know you had.

Claire’s a bad bitch, quite possibly too bad for her own good, but hey that’s entertainment. I’d know, I’ve been in the industry for a decade, which I should mention is changing rather rapidly for me. I’ll post more about the turn my career has taken in the next weeks to come, but until then hang tight as I come to terms with the changes :)

Channeling my favorite Underwood, I pulled together this rather simple power look and instantly I was fired up.

Huge thanks to Erich Chen for this set, for our first shoot together I couldn’t be happier.
