ARTIST DIARY: Ebony Magazine September 2015 Cover (Behind the Scenes)

I was so excited when I got the call from my agent, letting me know that I had been booked to do the September 2015 cover of Ebony magazine. When I read the callsheet and saw that I would be working with my partner-in-crime, Ursula Stephen, and a group of fresh “It Girls” in the modeling industry, I knew that I was in for a treat.

I immediately called my friends at Dior and requested around 20 nail lacquer colors to be sent to set for me. I wanted lots of options, so that I would be prepared for any wardrobe scenario. I did all 6 girls myself, including a few polish changes. When I tell you I was dog-tired by the end of the day! We ended up shooting for 12 hours, but the long day was well worth it.
