Synopsis

For my first shoot i really wanted to capture the rawness of the greaser

era, and who did that better then James dean? I took all the things that made James dean, and the greasers for that matter, who they were and turned it into my own trendy up to date style. For instance, taking the iconic white tee, black leather jacket, tight blue jeans and boots... clothing items that appear on James more times then once. Instead of a white crew neck tee i used a V-neck, The black leather jacket was a very expensive more casual evening jacket, the jeans were hand sewn Japanese selvedge denim, and last but not least the boots being a low cut wing-tip.

In the film “Has anybody seen my Gal?” theres a specific part in the film

that explains my whole first theme to a T. James is a soda and hot dog vendor in a old fashioned town where nothing really ever happens. One day, while working, he has an epiphany and has a clear vision of him and his perfect women riding his bike off into the distance. Once the vision is over he quits his boring job and hopes on his bike and drives off to find the women of his dreams. As you can see in my title page photo, my model is having that vision or dream that James so clearly had. He’s looking off into the distance and thinking “what could be”.

I cant really explain the main reason why this era inspires me. I believe

there are many reasons. The one main thing that stands out to me is how someone back then, whether it be a boy or girl, can take such a simple outfit and make it look so ridiculously good looking. When you look at James dean you get a overwhelming sense of confidence and maturity. He doesn't need to be in a fancy suit or tie or in a nice car; Like is said before its just a simple white tee and jeans. Its hard to say that about stars today, and thats why i feel the greaser era is so important and made such an impact on our daily fashion lives today.

When it came to the hair and make up treatment the whole process was pretty simple. I wanted a very light face with a darker eye brow and about a weeks length facial hair to bring out and feature the face. A light bronzer and cover up was used to hide face blemishes. Also, I wanted a very matte make up look so there would be no shine from the camera.

Hair was a bit more difficult for the reason being that the hair was so

crucial in portraying James deans image, if it was slightly off it could ruin the whole look. James has very thick and full hair, as well did my model. I wanted it to look very greasy and have a lot of shine to bring out the full force of the greaser era. I got the Hair stylist to add a part to the hair to make it a little more modern and yet again make it my own but still portraying that specific greaser look. 5
