Spontaneous photo shoots are good for the soul. They can be done alone, with a friend, or in a group. If you’re having an insanely bad day or an insanely good day, they are the perfect pastime to use as a means of rediscovering your inner model. On a bad day, however, your photos may be a little more artistic and emo in reflection of your mood. My friend Amy and I rediscovered our inner models over the weekend and it was a beautiful thing!
Taking casual photos also serves as great practice for being photographed by the paparazzi. Every socialite has to be comfortable around multiple cameras. This particular photo shoot is so Zooey Deschanel meets Rachel McAdams. Like Cher epically reminded us in the movie Clueless which is required socialite viewing, you can’t trust mirrors so you always need to take a picture of that day’s look. Thanks to digital photography, you don’t have to use polaroids like they did for instant photo gratification in 1995. These photos were taken on Photo Booth software which only further brings out the magic of Apple technology even more. Maybe next time we’ll dig up a Cher style polaroid camera for the sake of nostalgia.
If you think being a socialite is nothing but smoke and mirrors, think again. It’s serious business that requires constant self-reflection. For one who aspires to be in the public eye, it is important to always know who you really are. Let’s face it, if I’m planning on becoming a socialite celebrity one day, I need to start making my face more recognizable. Over the weekend, my neighbor and I did a mini photo shoot in some of our favorite looks by the mirror in her apartment. It was tons of fun and great practice for being photographed by the paparazzi. In true NYC style, our photo shoot was followed by brunch. Above you see me in one of the fab fitted tees from my Aspiring Socialite T-Shirt Line. Click here to get one of your own.
Socialite icon, Paris Hilton, woke up to a scare early this morning in her L.A. home when she spotted a man with two knives banging on her window. According to TMZ, the man was arrested around 6:30 a.m. and immediately taken to jail. As he was being arrested, Paris tweeted this picture along with “So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting him.” Luckily, the perpetrator never entered the home. This story supports my theory that nothing good can happen in the early morning so no one should be up before 11:00 a.m. It also causes me to look further into the life I aspire to. Does living a life of luxury open a shiny golden door to the world of stalkers and other unsavory characters? Would I really want cameras on me all of the time? Since I often forget my camera when I go out on the weekends, I sometimes welcome the thought of paparazzi shooting pictures of my and my friends, if they could tag me in them on Facebook that would be even better. However, I appreciate my alone time just as much as anyone and would like to be able to tan in Central Park in peace. Though being a socialite can be a hassle and even dangerous sometimes, not having to get up before 11:00 a.m. unless a crazed maniac is standing outside my window makes it totally worth it.
