"THE TIMELESS WOMAN" EDITORIAL FOR ELEGANT MAGAZINE, STYLED & CREATIVELY DIRECTED BY SHARRA GREENE, FEATURING MODEL JENNIFER CELINE, PHOTOGRAPHED BY DAMON RICE, MAKEUP BY KRISTIN PATTERSON

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 7.48.10 PM.png

With everyone in society still referencing iconic trends from every era under the sun in order to create memorable looks for themselves and others, I wanted to style and direct an editorial showcasing the versatility of women’s style as it relates to time, making the point that with confidence, you can channel any point in history and still make it fresh and modern, yet timeless. My main inspirations for the looks were the eclectic, tomboyish charm seen in the 70’s and the unapologetically sexy swag of the 90’s.

Model Jennifer Celine posed fiercely and accordingly for the spread seen in gorgeous cat eye makeup looks by artist Kristin Patterson. My genius creative partner Damon Rice killed the concept visually, per usual. (If you follow my blog, you’re more than familiar with his work.) See a few of my top faves from the spread below, featured in Elegant Magazine’s February Fashion #5 Issue.

          In this photo series, I wanted to capture the style and attitude of a woman with both around the way appeal, and high fashion qualities and taste. Her style is always bold and a tad sporty. I combined retro feels with modern day pieces to create an eclectic version of street style with vibrant prints, colors, and textures. Model Kayana Howard embodied the concept naturally and perfectly. Photographer Damon Rice captured the many layers of each look impeccably. Makeup Artist Ty Hubert created gorgeous cohesive yet clean makeup looks.

Stylist & Creative Director: Sharra Greene

A few images of my fave look from my most recent editorial shoot where I was lead stylist and creative director. I love working with model Dominique because she can embody just about any character that I can dream up. Here, her look was inspired by "a style super hero" type of chick that I created in my head a few weeks back. The super hero mixes prints and textures impeccably and uses her clothing and accessory game to create interesting shapes and silhouettes on her body. She shows just the right amount of skin and she has just the right amount of edge. She's on a mission to share her gift of garb with the world, aspiring to help others reach their maximum style potential. So, I decided to call her the Sartorial Savior. Street style photographers Sky La Flame & Lord Geezuz did an amazing job capturing the look.

THE POWER OF BEING "LADY-LIKE" (WHATEVER THAT IS)

Written & Styled by Sharra Greene | Captured by Allen Stewart

fall 17 shoot 2.jpg

     So while I was preparing for this shoot, my makeup artist and I were talking and she asked me what I would be wearing. Upon me mentioning that I was wearing a skirt, I told her how much I love skirts (anyone who truly knows me, knows this) because they make me feel really feminine, lady-like  and chic. She then added "and so empowered, too!" I've never related to something so much in my life. Our conversation drove me to start thinking about the different perceptions that people have of what it truly means to appear and "behave like a lady". 

     I'm usually the one who shows up and hears a comment like "why are you so dressed up?" or "It's not that deep, you didn't have to wear a skirt." I always find these comments funny because as someone who explores self expression through style so often, it comes so naturally to me so I never really think of it as "over dressing". I enjoy getting dressed up for life so much for several reasons, one of them being because when I look good, I feel good. I feel like I can take on whatever comes my way. Though there is soo much more to me than the way that I dress, expressing myself through dress actually does make me feel both feminine and empowered, all at once.

     By definition, "lady like" means "appropriate for" or typical of a well-bred, decorous woman or girl. But to me,  it's interesting how as fashion and society evolves, our standards of what it means to be "lady like" has evolved with it in so many ways. Some may feel that you have to dress modestly, have a certain set of manners, or perform certain tasks to be essentially valued as an authentic woman with a sense of class and integrity.  This idea is often pushed on women in society. However, in today's world, I am so glad that so many of us (myself included) are creating our own standards and embracing whatever truly makes us feel good as women.

When someone suggests that one needs to increase value, strength, or power in a stuation, we often hear "Man up!"  Well I'm here to tell you that there's nothing more powerful than a lady who is authentically herself, and who feels free enough to express that in whatever positive, inspiring way that she can think of. I believe that when a woman feels free to be herself, she is then best able to live her best life and add value to the lives of others. Whether it's wearing a skirt,  speaking up for yourself, spreading love and light to others, or all of the above, do whatever makes you feel "lady like". Woman up.
