Ford Models represents supermodels like Cheryl Tiegs, Twiggy and Jerry Hall. But they also control some of the top beauty, hair, styling and photography talents in the industry -- the creative brains behind those flawless fashion ads and beauty billboards that make you want to blow your paycheck on something both fabulous and useless.
Thanks to Ford Artists by Appointment you can now hire one of these pros that industry insiders turn to, making an authentic makeover entourage accessible to anyone willing to pay for it.
Need a stylist to help you create a look from the shoes on up for a big event? No problem -- fashion stylist Julie Matos (she's the genius behind those quirky Orbitz gum campaigns) is your gal. Wish you could have a seriously flattering photo taken of yourself? It's easy with fashion photog Tim Geaney (hello, timeless Ralph Lauren ads) behind the lens.
These pros aren't necessarily all about beautifying celebrities -- they're even more exclusive. These are the people making magic happen that you don't see or hear about because they're often off on photo shoots in exotic locales or behind the scenes at some hush-hush event.
Julien Farel, of Ford Artist's New York division, is a veteran of the high-end hair biz. This handsome Frenchman started his career 19 years ago and has worked his way from Jacques Dessange to Frederic Fekkai to opening his own salon and leading a team of pros backstage at Fashion Week and on photo shoots.
Kiwi Joanne Gair, to whom you can credit the makeup in the steamy Guess ad shown here, is a renowned makeup artist and body painter who has worked on fashion editorials, ad campaigns, commercials, music videos -- including many of Madonna's. You may also have seen her work on Lady Gaga in the latest M.A.C. Viva Glam campaign.
Pros like these at our fingertips? This is definitely something we could get used to. Maybe they could even put us on par with the most beautiful American woman of all time.
