STYLE / 70

the shining is a terrifying movie. i sit and watch it with my ears covered through half of it because the quick edits & loud noises have me all anxious. but it’s a ridiculously good movie, right? last week we did a clockwork orange style post and this week it’s all about the grady twins from the shining. and there’s also a video at the bottom that my boyfriend put together that you gotta check out. thanks for following along on our stanley kubrick style tribute – it was definitely cool to switch it up and push our creative limits.

for this shoot, we were on the hunt for a creepy hotel in los angeles that would fit the vibe of the shining. we walked right in to this one and it ended up being hauntingly perfect (that winding staircase in the video is crazy!) shooting the video was actually really eery and the location made it easy to act the part. however, i chose not to venture into the frightening blood spattered scenes for obvious reasons.

the babydoll style dress with white stockings and mary jane shoes was the iconic look i was going for. i spotted this pink dress at shareen vintage that looked quite similar to the girl’s blue costumes in the film. and i had to rock the side part of course.

that ending? kudos, mister. you even scared me.

    WOW, Bri. These shots are so hauntingly perfect.
    Seriously, the mood you’ve captured in them made me shiver a bit. You’re an incredible model – has anyone told you that?
    Thanks for creating such amazing content week after week for us!

  • 20. monica  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 8:56 am

    excellent, I love this concept. by the way, I think I’m the only person in the world that didn’t think The shining was a scary movie! if you want scary movies, you should watch the orphanage///////
    Great style post!

  • 21. Rebecca - A Daily Something  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 9:01 am

    So hauntingly beautiful, Bri. Great job … what a fantastic team you have!

  • 22. Malori  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 9:03 am

  • 23. LARY@ Inspiration Nook  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 9:08 am

  • 24. nicole b.  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 9:09 am

    Very nice. Deliciously spooky.

  • 25. Mfree  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Seriously, these style posts are FABULOUS. You are just killing it (no pun intended). Bravo to modshift and the video team. It’s spectacular.

  • 26. tianna @ Suffocated Bliss  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 9:50 am

    Awesome. The Shining is probably my favorite horror film. – I’ve only seen a couple Kubrick films, so I clearly need to finish his filmography.

    – tianna :)

  • 27. Sarah  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 10:54 am

    This is crazy awesome and perfect for October =)

    – Sarah

  • 28. Pegah S  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 11:40 am

    you have out done yourself. I think the CWO section was the strongest part of the video.

  • 29. rory amber  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 11:58 am

    i hope 2001 is next!

  • 30. Michaela @ Two and Twenty  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    omg, the last half of that video was so creepy! *slow clapping*

  • 31. Samantha Penner  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Eeeek that movie terrified me for years. Just seeing these pictures (although you are gorgeous) scares me and brings back that fear. Job well done, though!!

  • 32. invitation consultants  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    very spooky!

  • 33. Sarah  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    This is terrifyingly beautiful! I love the creativity and inspiration! You pushed the envelope of the normal style post, and I admire that. Very editorial.

  • 34. Sarolta  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    Love the photoshop work in the pictures. This style post clearly brought out the artist in you.

  • 35. Kate  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    Loooove this! And the video–amazing (you have a very talented guy–I’m jealous that you found yourself an artist!). Completely makes me want to watch The Shining, just as soon as I visit my boyfriend and won’t be sleeping alone!

  • 36. Rebecca  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    Really enjoyed the video. I love when the architecture becomes part of the story. Thanks for sharing.

  • 37. Dana McDowell  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 4:12 pm

    Genius…but my heart is still racing! Gah, The Shining is so scary to me.

  • 38. Ali Mackin  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Wow Bri you look different. Great post and photography. Yes The Shinning was one of those films that made me want to go to film school. Oh the your boyfriend’s film is super cool as well…your a talented duo.

  • 39. chandra ~ oh lovely day  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    this is so cool. when I saw the first photo and didn’t see what it was for yet I thought you looked like a creepy elle fanning, which turned out to pretty much be true :) REDRUM!

  • 40. Anonymous  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    bri, this is cool and all, but i dont think it should be archived under “style.” all your other style posts are inspiring and practical for everyday wear – which is what most style posts should be about right? i think this should be archived under another category…maybe “awesome and creative!” but definitely not “style”. as always though, good job on blowing your readers away!

  • 41. Dana McDowell  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    @Anonymous–it’s freakin’ October and definitely appropriate for Halloween style.

  • 42. Deeyarah  |  October 2nd, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    DLF and Modshift! You guys rock!!! Seriously…wow.

    i love how you make style posts a complete creative package? why stop at pictures why not make an entire day of it? it is also muy adorable that you get to spend the time with your dude.

  • 46. Amanda  |  October 3rd, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    you are SO kick ass. I read this blog religiously and its stuff like THIS that makes me really love your work. its quirky and fun and the styling and everything was so artfully done. just in time for Halloween. thanks for making my day

  • 47. Annie Hollywood  |  October 3rd, 2012 at 6:09 pm
