C.O.J. Exclusive: A talk with model Cameron Russell

So, a friend of my sister hooked me up with speaking to model Cameron Russell. Ms. Russell and I were supposed to meet up in New York to talk over dinner, but it turns out she was stuck in Paris during their fashion week because of the weather :p ... hopefully we'll be able to meet up next time! We resorted to talking through facebook.

Age? 23
Birthplace? Boston
Agency? Women in NY, D'management Milan, Models1 London

How were you discovered? I was scouted by a couple people which inspired me to go talk to the people at Ford because my mom knew someone who worked there. 

What is one piece of clothing you absolutely can't live without? My giant winter coat, NYC can be freezing in the winter and I love to walk around.

The Oscars...the Pretty, the Interesting, & the Ugly

Let's start with the pretty... :)

she kinda looks like an Oscar...I like it!

This looks like a nice balance with the fit & the full ruffle layers

Didn't see her whole dress but aren't they a cute couple ?

Beautiful Queen! This color is the best on her skin tone

I love all things shimmery.

I don't see why Miley got so many bad reviews for this dress. I mean, I don't really like her either, but i loveee the dress!

I like this dress but i wish she had more accessories...she looks so plain!

I think if this dress was on anybody else i wouldn't like it as much...butttt since it's on Rachael McAdams, i love:) ...it reminds me of a silent storm

This dress flatters Gabby well. I love her confidence as well...she's a strong girl no matter how many haters she has.

This dress is pretty, but also pretty boring. Mo'Nique looks radiant & I'm so happy she won Best Supporting Actress

I love Tina Fey! This Michael Kors dress was a pleasant surprise:)

Now for the...interesting :-/

You either love or hate this one. It's couture so of course it's a little bizzare...i like it though...especially the top 

This dress is pretty, but entirely too close to her skin tone! wash out!

Again, pretty, but it seems to really weigh her down on the bottom.

I knew this was Chanel when I first saw it...kind of on the fence about this one.

Annnndddd the ugly... :(

I mean really...what was she thinking? It did nothing for her figure & it seemed a little awkward.

YAWNNN....same old, same old with Mariah...switch it up I'm gettin' bored with the cleavage/high slit/simple draping combo!

A message from Joelle...

Hello loves:) I apologize for the blog hiatus (for those that regularly check it :) ) These midterms seem to have taken up all of my free time :-/ (plus I've been feeling a little lazy) No worries though, I'm back and I will have a surprise guest that I will be interviewing over my spring break & I am extra excited to share that with you. 

Beyonce's promo for House of Dereon

I like the jacket...I think.
my fav!

These photos were taken in Greece last year to promote Beyonce's House of Dereon clothing line. Not a huge fan of House of Dereon, but these pics are amazing.
