For this story, Filler Magazine's Creative Director Ryan Johnson had envisioned a shiny bronzed up gal in glowing white clothing. Trouble was, he didn't really think it through when he booked the stunning Autumn with skin like that of a porcelain doll.
No one but the stylist really got that I was unable to fully bronze our model to the extent that the art director wanted because, lets face it, we see bronzed goddesses in Vogue all the time and we know it's body makeup right?
Indeed, but as fab as Filler is, it does not have the budget or clout Vogue does. Few do and exactly who's gonna tell Anna Wintour that the magazine needs to pay for stained samples? Exactly.
Even with the most advanced stay put makeup, there is ALWAYS some transfer. Never the less, we worked it out and the beautiful result is above.
