STYLE / 54

i’m pretty sad this month’s beso style series has come to an end. but luckily today we have all sorts of outtakes from max. and a super cool video from arian!

the first week we experimented with black and white & I finally got to wear a tuxedo! (and somehow exactly resembled my three year old self)

then we moved on to an in yo face floral post. pattern mixing to the max!

i also got this colorful chalk braid tied across my head…the beauty department did a tutorial on how to do this yourself right here!

i have always loved those prickly looking flowers. what are they called again?

after that, we stripped the color away and went completely neutral with it. lace, sequins, tulle, balloons…

and this week, we put a spin on the floral look with a fun yellow tie-up shirt and a pair of summer trousers! perfect for a weekend getaway.

and the braid went from a ponytail to a crown of braided glory.

check out my collection & get this 4th look here

shop my beso collection: Kendra Scott necklace / Equipment shirt / Urban Outfitters sunglasses / Kate Spade bracelet / Tory Burch wedges / Edun cropped trousers  (and see alternates over here in my collection!)

thank you to my boyfriend who created this MAGICAL video for me to share with you! it’s different than any videos we’ve done in the past…a little darker & more dramatic. watch here:

photography: max wanger
art direction: bri emery & jen gotch
styling: jen pinkston
videography: modshift
music: malcolm mclaren, “about her”

see ALL the looks here!

    The video is fabulous. I loved it. This has been a great series. Congrats on the gorgeous looks. xo

    AWESOME video. Arian’s work is amazing. I really loved how this video was more dramatic than your usual style. Matches the mood of this month’s style shoots too.
    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you just keep raising that bar, Bri!
    Well done to you and the entire team for these shoots.
    Ronnie xo

  • 4. Bec  |  May 22nd, 2012 at 7:15 am

    So fun, thanks to your boyfriend for the video too – I really loved seeing you and Max in action and how you worked!

  • 5. Rachael B  |  May 22nd, 2012 at 7:17 am

    I believe they’re called protea. Loved the video – especially the music. I’m super envious that you got to wear that gorgeous dress. It looked incredible on you and even more ethereal with that huge balloon. On a side note – a friend of mine is getting married next summer, we’re definitely investing in those balloons for her. She must MUST have them! Thanks for always sharing such beautiful and inspiring work Bri. You are amazing!
