The lovely Lisa Ray is getting married. I had the pleasure of dolling her up for Harper's Bazaar India who is featuring her this October.
I have learned over the years to offer beauty suggestions to the celebs in my chair. Of course they need to feel comfortable with you and what you can do; ultimately it is up to them to decline - Lisa was a joy to work with and I say a huge 'thanks' to her for letting me play around with hairstyles.
[sidebar: YEARS ago before Alanis Morrisette cut her hair off I was hired to do a press junket with her in Toronto. I asked her how would she like her hair & makeup done - her answer: whatever I like. Um. How fab is that? Except I opted for the safe root and did her up like anyone else had.
Note to self: Whenever someone says 'do whatever you like' take it and run with it. Alanis: if you are touring in Asia - call me!]

My second assistant trying to take over Delia's job but obviously full of attitude and a little lazy.
A gorgeous September day in Toronto.
I love this photo of Lisa I snapped with my HTC.
A little bling that Nadia hand on-hand... actually, that's my hand... Nadia: I'd like this ring please. For serious. Who's is it??
