This week’s Of Note post on KCD casting director Michelle Lee is the second post in the new series. The first post was of make-up maven Pat McGrath. I hope you are enjoying this new series. If you have suggestions/feedback, let me know in the comments section or email me.
Casting director Michelle Lee was born in New Jersey and thought that one day she would become a lawyer, but fate had other plans. She moved to New York City and became a fashion show producer with top fashion firm KCD. Through producing fashion shows and a brief stint with renowned casting director Jennifer Venditti, Lee found that she could make a living finding models for editorials, ads, and fashion shows. She never knew that the role of casting director even existed before that time.
Like most models, you start working for a few years, and then maybe, just maybe you get your big break. Lara Stone is one of those models. After being in the business for a few years, she is finally getting her big break. I have to say that 2009 really was her year. Some say it is her “curves”, others say it is gap-toothed smile, and many are just plain fixated with her breasts. Either way, she has something that made Vogue Paris dedicate a whole issue to her.
Now Lara is the cover model for Love Magazine, and guess what?!?!? She’s naked on the cover. Surprise, surprise. She is also the new face of Louis Vuitton ,replacing Madonna who modeled in the LV ads for two seasons. Photos from The Cut. Oh and sorry for the nudity if you are at work.
