Katherine Schule at Q Model Management
Katherine Schule came all the way from Russia, Moscow to pursue her dream of modeling in NYC! Signed by Q Model Management, our team was thrilled at the opportunity to work with this up and coming model. Katherine encourages other aspiring models to always pursue their dreams and “never give up” (as illustrated by the delicate tattoo on her foot). Before coming to New York Katherine tried her hand at dancing, which she said has influenced her modeling style. A natural in front of the camera, she didn’t need much direction from our photographer. This 5’ 9 ½ foot model personifies an understated sexiness and quite frankly with legs like that, she could make a paper bag look good!
Luckily, our fashion team had a lot more to work with and snagged some amazing couture pieces for her shoot. Currently sold out at Bergdorf Goodman, Katherine is wearing a Balmain dress in denim accented with gold buttons. The House of Balmain was founded in 1945 by French designer Pierre Balmain and was formerly known for glamorous gowns and daywear. Wanting to appeal to the “street-chic downtown crowd” the brand has evolved to include an edgier side of couture.
Our makeup team accentuated Katherine’s amazing cheek bones with shimmery highlights and played up her tenacious glare with smokey blue hues. The red lip was the perfect finale for this look. Her hair was left wet and slicked back to allow her natural beauty to shine through.
Every stylist (and fashion savvy New Yorker) out there knows accessories can make or break an outfit and what better choice to accentuate couture pieces than Oscar del a Renta? Award winning Dominican-born designer, Oscar de la Renta is widely known and recognized in the fashion world. Always a top red carpet choice, La Renta is loved and worn by celebrities like Audrey Hepburn, Liza Minnelli, Taylor Swift and Sarah Jessica Parker (to name a few).
If owning one of his $9,000 gowns just isn’t in the cards right now, why not invest in one of his jewelry pieces to add a little glam to your wardrobe? This painted flower statement necklace (currently in stock at Bergdorf) is set in 24-karat gold pewter and goes perfectly with his clip on flower drop earrings. Both conversation starters, you are sure to get noticed in this ensemble!
Channeling her inner “bad girl” our team changed looks and styled Katherine in a BLK DNM leather vest and YSL gold heels! (Try not to drool on the screen) Both luxury brands that create custom pieces Jay Z donned BLK DNM’s Leather Jacket 5 on his “on the run tour” with wife Beyoncé!
So in conclusion, if you want to live the life of a high fashion model, sport haute couture brands worn by celebrities and look good in a leather vest (and not much else) give us a call! …..at the very least we can invite you to our Brooklyn based studio for a fashion test shoot and give you some pointers on how to walk in those 4 inch heels! CARPE DIEM!
