VIDEO: the malibu dream

7th February, 2012

Over the course of collaborating on THIS SERIES, Jamie and Kevin and I poured through our collective, treasured references. We reminisced about the images that inspired our current careers ~ what we loved about them, what we dreamed of turning them into. We listened to one playlist on repeat until its melodies intertwined with the visions in our heads. We cuddled up over champagne in the evenings to watch old movies and music videos. We remembered why we love what we do.

We decided to challenge ourselves to make something more than we’d planned. We decided to try something uncertain, to aspire to make something beautiful and memorable and slightly surreal and undeniably intimate. We wanted to tell a different sort of story than we ever had before. And so we made this.

  • Very sensual video… Congratulations that you do what you love and what you are good at 🙂

  • Cassie Wagnac

    Lovely video. I love your style.

    I’ve been following your blog for awhile now and each time I look at you I think “She reminds me of Jessica Stroup.” She plays Erin Silver on 90210. Either way, you’re both beautiful. 

  • Adela

    Great video! Love your style. Favourite blogger no doubt. Keep it up 🙂

    Adela xx


  • Entre

    The new layout of the blog is a little confusing, but video is amazing. Nice change.

  • Cc

    like? LOVE!! YOU are so stunning. Yes the song is great for capturing the sensuality, the excitement and your amazing moves. Congratulations on this gorgeous collaboration. 

  • That was insanely incredible. Not even exaggerating. 
    PS loved The Do. They’re rad. xx

  • You remind me a little of Marilyn Monroe in this video… beautiful and hunting- innocent yet seductive shot in a gritty film noir meets voyeuristic fashion .  Also- the choice of music is quite outstanding. Great job. 

  • Placelesstraveled

    Wow, this video is absolutely amazing. Perfection, really. It’s done so amazingly well. I’m in awe.

  • Ireneccloset

    This video is awesome, you’re great Kelly!


  • Stunning and so inspirational. Thank you!

  • Hmmm

    This video was beautifully done, but I’m sorry to say that the topless shots made me lose respect for you a little bit. I always thought you were a classy chick, but maybe not so much anymore. Quite tasteless and unnecessary, really. 

  • Jessie Ning

    you look absolutely sexy and classy. love this video! x

  • not a fan

    I’m sorry, but I liked most things about this video except for the boob shots. I visit your blog daily because you typically exude class with tasteful sexiness. But not anymore, sorry. I just think you crossed the line a little bit. Would have been wayyy sexier and much more tasteful without the nudity. You’re not quite as great as I thought you were.

  • Sara Valente

    I love it!!!

  • Dea Soldati

    I do the same comment that I did on Jamie’s blog. 
    One word, WOw! It’ a great job!

  • Brie

    I knew there would be comments about the nudity and I do see a couple. I’ll admit I was surprised by it at first, just because I had you pegged as rather conservative in that respect. (I had a “Did I just see what I thought I saw?? moment.) But it didn’t offend me or put me off. The video is very sensual and the nudity is in quick flashes and I think it actually adds to the overall feel of the video, like stolen moments.

  • Vassiliki

    It is a masterpiece!!! You looked simply stunning!Love,love,love it!!

  • Laura Tedeschi Arte

    you are a great inspiration for me, you charme is somthing special

    This video tops the charts…it is chilling. I love absolutely everything about it. I am KW #1 fan too, so getting to be in her Malabu house was a bonus treat for me!!!. You know how to work the camera. It is fun seeing you in live action!!!!. The nudity is well done and it added to the video. And, BTW, I loved the boob shot!!! So sexy! People need to stop being so judgmental and prude!!!!
    Bravo Kelly!!!

  • I have never

    I am sorry. I think this girl has great taste, but it is really a turn off how into herself she is. I have never seen somebody post more pictures of themselves in my life. Gets old. When you see models(who are truly paid models) in fashion magazines, they are there as they are actual career models. This girl reminds me of somebody who wishes they were a fashion model, so made a blog to make herself into something she really isn’t. Though a pretty girl, I will give her, she is not a model. And she just comes across self absorbed. Get over yourself a bit. You have way too many pictures of yourself and it’s annoying. Also when you speak your side to side head, “like OMG movement” is so annoying. Take some lessons on video commentary and remember YOU ARE NOT A MODEL. A pretty girl though you are.
