Last Friday in West Hollywood four ladies got together to have some fun and create something with the amazing Nikki Deloach, who plays Jenna’s mom Lacey Hamilton on one of my favorite shows, Awkward (the season finale is in two weeks!) I’ve gone on and on about this show over the last year so it was pretty rad to shoot Nikki for the blog. She is the sweetest, coolest southern girl this side of Georgia, which is where she is from and where her family recipe for Georgia Caviar originates (she has been working on a cookbook of family recipes in her free time). Nikki even brought a fresh batch of it to set, which we all promptly scarfed down. She gave me a jar to take home after the shoot and I ate the entire thing the next day… with a spoon… out of the jar. It was THAT good and I would do it again (Nikki please make note… Christmas gifts for me for years to come are that easy!) Nikki is a huge fan of fashion and everything we tried looked gorgeous on her, plus she was game for anything (my favorite kind of model). Once again I have opted not to retouch these photos because as usual the lady is smoking hot without any additional help. Addie Markowitz did hair and Jen Budner did make up while I photographed and styled. Nikki in a Kevan Hall pant suit, Aldo heels and vintage New Orleans mask above and more from our shoot below…
A Corey Lynn Calter dress worn over another Corey Lynn Calter dress with Aldo boots, Celeste Stein socks, Paul & Joe belt and Sanctuary hat. We all decided that this look reminded us of Pretty In Pink which is of course one of John Hughes’ best films and since Awkward is sort of a cross between the best of John Hughes and a little Downton Abbey it only makes sense, right?

Mcginn blazer with Corey Lynn Calter trousers and Jerome C. Rousseau heels
And these are the Jerome C. Rousseau heels Nikki is wearing with the Tory Burch look above, I am obsessed with them and you can hardly see them in the shot so a close up was necessary… Ditto these Frey Wille bangles inspired by Gustav Klimt.
