Our Toronto RfR team had a chance to get all dolled up for a two-day photoshoot session with the amazing portrait & wedding photographer, Carole B. Eves. Before getting all glitzed up, all of our ladies headed to the RfR closet in search of the perfect dress and accessories. After finding their keepers, they met with the glam squad, Brushes & Blushes, Euphoria, and Angela Shaw, for their full beauty makeovers!

RfR Stylist, Chantal, reminds us that animal prints are always in style, and shares some of the highlights from her shoot…

RfR: What were some of the highlights from your photoshoot and how did the overall experience make you feel?

 The highlight of this photoshoot for me was getting my makeup done by Angela Shaw. It’s always so interesting to see how someone else would pretty me up. The overall experience was so amazing! Who wouldn’t have fun being dolled up and picking out a beautiful dress and posing for a camera just like a model would?

RfR: What made you choose your dresses, and in what way did the hair and makeup compliment the look?

 I chose the Black and Ivory Leopard Print Gown by Badgley Mischka dress because the shape of it reminded me of my wedding dress which was very flattering on me. I love the animal print, it felt very strong and daring; I thought it would be a really sexy standout. For my second look, I went with something more abstract and bright, the Multi-Floral Jersey Dress with Ruching by Nicole Miller

RfR: What would be the perfect event(s) to wear these dresses to?

I would say where these frocks to a gala or special event, definitely somewhere where there is a red carpet!

RfR: What body type would work perfectly for each of your dress choices?

These dresses best suit an hourglass figure as they both narrow in at the waist and really show off all of your curves.
