{ American Woman }

AmericanWoman1In honor of this weekend’s Independence Day celebrations in the states, we are delighted to present you with pictures from our latest sitting with Sarah Sophie Flicker, shot this past spring for Brooklyn Magazine. Sarah is one of our favorite muses around here; she represents the best of what it can mean to be a woman in America today.AmericanWoman2|ABOVE| vintage headdress and necklace, Sally LaPointe gown |AT TOP| Honor shrug and gown

She’s a wife and mother obsessed with making the world a better place for her children and grandchildren, a loving leader, an artist and an activist. In a country founded on freedom, essential liberties are still being snatched away (pun intended) from women today. Sarah has been very vocal in her dissent of it all, but chooses performance, music, humor and art over accusatory rhetoric in her pursuit of reform.AmericanWoman3|ABOVE| DVF dress over Zuhair Murad gown |BELOW| Naeem Khan gown

Incensed, she’s a torch-carrier for Lady Parts Justice, a movement intent on keeping politicians out of our pants that aims to improve the welfare of womankind today, from V to shining V. And that’s why we salute her ~ and each and every one of you ~ this 4th of July! Let freedom ring.AmericanWoman4|AMERICAN WOMAN| starring Sarah Sophie Flicker |PHOTOGRAPHY| by Shae DeTar |STYLING| by Kelly Framel |HAIR| by Travis Speck |MAKEUP| by James Boehmer
