Ode to Robert Palmer

Some of you out there may remember Robert Palmer's music videos from the early 90's. The two that come to mind are "Addicted to Love" and "Simply Irresistible". Basically Robert Palmer sang while a bunch models who were all dressed alike and wore bright red lipstick would pretend to play instruments and dance around him. The music was good, but those videos turned them into huge hits.

Earlier this week I worked with a model named Madeline. She came in wearing a red dress and BRIGHT red lipstick. She said she was going for the "Robert Palmer" look. I immediately flashed back to those music videos. Because of the vivid color of her lips and dress, I decided to try to get her skin as light as possible to create contrast.

Madeline was great to work with and she is eager to pursue a modeling career. I hope to work with her again some day.
