Its not always about your face. It’s about the fashion. I think thats why you sometimes see the use of masks or “veils” in fashion. You know, don’t look at my face, look at this really groovy outfit I have on! Maison Martin Margiela’s Fall 2012 Couture show was filled with models wearing sequined and beaded face covers, and you know what? While looking at the pictures, I couldn’t take my eyes off the clothes. Google it, see if you feel the same, I am thinking of trying it my next runway show. Please, let me know what you think.

I originally purchased this jacket a few months ago, back when everyone else did, the week Ladies Who Lunch released it. I couldn’t make a decent picture out of it, so I tucked it away as an item to try and restyle later. I have an entire folder in my inventory labeled “Things to Try Over” because I am an “accidental” model at best, I have to feel it to be able to style it. Knowing I had a photoshoot with Skip Staheli, and also knowing he would be able to take whatever I style and make a gorgeous and usable piece of art with it, I pulled it back out and worked with it a few days. What I found from this, nothing is important to this style but the oversized coat. Everything else should be minimized, including my face. Once I figured that out, I darkened the face, further hid it behind hair, wore less clothes elsewhere, just turned the focus to the unique coat and let Skip do his thing. I really like what Skip created, what do you think about the result?

About the Author

My name is Caoimhe Lionheart. I've lost my Second Life shine these days, not jaded, just resigned. Second Life is filled with so many self-serving people. Them aside, the beautifully kind, intelligent people are the ones I am drawn to. I feel it's incredibly special and unique on the occasions that I meet someone who is sincere in nature, kind to the bone and their beauty shines from within. Now those people, and I have met quite a few, they are the reason Second Life is uniquely wonderful and special to me. I am a prankster and a gad about. I love to laugh and create fun and I have a real bad Fashion addiction. My friends call me Cao (and I am pretty sure they are saying Cow) but thats okay, it kinda fits. I enter contests to show off the abilities of the photographer or clothes I am wearing, not for the pursuit of the win and I always enjoy a good chat. Thanks for the read, perhaps one day you too will be a friend. =)

    I love this look Cao, and love the concept. Still for me, although you and Skip have made the coat the focal point, there is no denying that it is you, even though your face is partially hidden. And that is the mark of one amazing model and a very gifted photographer. Well done!
