Hannah Bronfman is the quintessential city girl. She’s super-social ~ out every night, she knows everybody in New York, and they all adore her. She DJs the coolest parties and opens the hottest restaurants. And she works as hard as she plays. Among myriad other endeavors, she just launched Beautified, an awesome app that allows on-the-go girls like herself snatch up last-minute beauty appointments at the best possible price (If you live in NYC, trust me, you need this!). She’s what your grandfather might call a mover and a shaker ~ and inside that downtown persona, I see a future icon. I see a maturity in her eyes that belies her young age, a stillness that contradicts her frenetic schedule. I just had to get her into the studio and draw it all out.
Inspired by iconic portraits of a young Dorothy Dandridge, I set out to transform my beautiful friend into her highest, most heightened self ~ the formidable femme within. I hosed her down in liquid gowns and a safe-full of LoveGold jewelry, hoping to create a space through which her confidence and innate elegance could truly radiate.|ABOVE| Maiyet gown, Slane tassel earrings and necklace, Temple St. Clair necklace, Camilla Dietz Bergeron rings and bracelets
