One September morning this fall I was surprised that the beach was cold. It was a warm, end-of-summer week with blue skies and searing sun, but the wind on Silverpoint Beach on Long Island was biting. I was there, at six in the morning, for a shoot for Allure Magazine's December issue. I spent the day wearing pastel robes, frills, silks, and oh so much sand, running and doing backbends and squinting into the blinding light. The team was fantastic, the artistic approach was liberating and, at last, it warmed up. Shot by Yelena Yemchuk, Styled by Zara Zachrisson, Hair by Tamas Tuzes, Makeup by Susie Bol. Thank you all so so much!
