Rise and Shine! Early last Wednesday morning the Cynthia Steffe team arrived on set at Pier 59 Studios, Chelsea Piers, ready to watch the magic happen! We were greeted by our Agency, Illumnista LTD, Kristen Ingersoll, our magnificent stylist from Hearst Corporation, the photoshoot team, including the wonderful Photographer, Pavel Havlicek, and our gorgeous models: Nikayla, Antonella and Jessica.

Back Stage” the stylists were getting right to work, sorting through endless amounts of shoes, jewels, and clothes to style each dress. The models were getting glammed up by our fabulous hair, makeup and nail artists. The beginning of the photo shoot was in the horizon, excitement was in the air, and the energy was high! 


Before the shoot began, we used the inspiration board to get our creative juices flowing. The inspiration board helped us envision each look for our shots, including the hair and makeup for our models and the backdrop scenes for our shoot.

The first shot of the day could not have been more breath taking. Antonelle and Jessica radiated in our Holiday 2013 collection. We couldn’t get enough of the two girls together showing off the beautiful collection. You never quite get the full affect of the dresses until you see them being worn – we were instantly blown away!

The girls continued to WOW us throughout the shoot with their effortless poses that made the Cynthia Steffe dresses shine like no other. The models were getting creative with their poses, impressing us more and more with every shot! We just couldn’t get enough!

We were proud to have Nikayla show off our Resort 2013 Collection during the shoot. Her beauty matches our vision of the Cynthia Steffe girl to a t. She floated around a Mediterranean inspired set at the shoot for our Resort look in floral, delicately beaded, flirty Cynthia Dresses. In the below images you can see shots of the Mediterranean set, and also the computer generated image of Nikayla.

On set there is always lots of behind the scenes preparation. In between almost every shot there is preparation occurring. Good thing we had our lovely stylists, hair dressers, and makeup artists to take over the critical touch ups.
