Sundance Looks for Less

The Sundance Film Festival is a festival that takes place yearly in the state of Utah. It's the largest independent cinema festival in the United States. The Sundance Film Festival is held in January in Park City, Salt Lake City, and Ogden, as well as the Sundance Resort. The festival is the premier showcase for new work from American and International independent filmmakers.

But for all the fashionistas out there we know that its not only about the films. Despite the frigid cold weather, celebrities make it their business to make a statement, a FASHION STATEMENT that is :). Lately we have been experiencing some cold weather of our own but without the festival. That doesn't mean we can't make it work even with all the snow.

"Make Me Over" Outtakes

Like most photo shoots, you come back to the editing table with way more photos than you thought you took or photos that are actually used for the final piece. Here are a few that didn't make the cut from our "Make Me Over" photo shoot that took place last weekend. This particular set was snapped by the lovely Regina, who "beat" our faces and who happens to also be the owner of Kaka Yard, an online Vintage Clothing Store. I personally have to say, my skin never looked this flawless. It felt so fabulous to be made over! Trois Femmes would like to thank Regina once again for collaborating with us for this shoot. We had a blast!

Check out our "Make Me Over" post to see how you too can have your Make Up professionally done by Regina.

Model Spotlight: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

With NYC Fashion week right around the corner, we wanted to feature another "Model Spotlight". This time around, meet Rosie Huntington Whiteley-

Like Chanel Iman, Rosie Huntington Whiteley has wings-Victoria Secret Angel wings that is. Rosie became the first and only British Angel in 2010, after making a debut for the brand in 2006. A green eyed, English model born April 18th, 1987 has worked for numerous campaigns including Top Shop, DKNY, French Connection, Ralph Lauren, L.A.M.B., Abercrombie & Fitch. One of my favorite ad campaigns this gorgeous model has done was, Burberry's Winter Ads in 2010.

Not intending to be a model, but just wanting to work "behind the scenes" in fashion, Rosie was discovered while studying in college by Profile Model Management. After she modeled locally for a while, her career took off when she moved to NY in 2005 and strutted down the runway during Fall/Winter 2004 Fashion Week in NYC. Now back in London, she is still making her mark in the industry. What's next for Rosie? She will replace Megan Fox as the lead in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon".
