Styling Stint: Back Home with Claire Unabia

I've seen Claire (America's Next Top Model contender season 10) on PFW's runway last season and I always wondered how I'm ever gonna style or work with her. An opportunity presented itself through my good friend/co-stylist Jear when we were looking for a model to book for our Manila Bulletin shoot. Jear has this talent of making impossible things happen, so I wasn't really shocked when he told me he was able to book Claire AND Danica (Ford Supermodel) for our shoot. Calcarrie's even flew them in early from New York just   for our shoot (before they get busy for Fashion Week). WOW! We were both super excited and anxious but more on pressured (haha) coz we only had 3 days to pull out and build a team. And we did it!:)

Starting my post with what I wore (as usual, for teen vogue ya know hehe)... Thanks Ilsa for the photos!
Oxygen x Marcela Gutierrez shirt, Penshoppe jacket, Bench jeans, Chickflick wedges

Mauve gray bracelet, Envy leather bracelet, Bedazzle bangle, Bubbles connector ring

My shoes almost killed my feet, but this is an otherwise comfy outfit for a 5-hour shoot. Heh. I love how the Penshoppe military jacket goes perfectly well with my new Marcela tee! Thanks Penshoppe and Oxygen:)

Anyway, here are the published photos! Theme was Casual Glam. Jear and I divided the layouts in half (4 each) coz we wanted to style them both. I love our team!:) Do you know that Claire is actually half Pinay? Coolio.
