Glam Squad 1: Makeup and Wardrobe. Three Sexy Women.

I got five sexy women plus some five star love in my house
And on the walls, got Gucci linen
My bartender keep the bottles poppin’ all night, ni-ii-ght

This is the silky hook sung by Jeremih [of ‘Birthday Sex’ fame] on the new Sheek Louch track, ‘Party After 2.’ The song is a smooth toast to those late nights spent buzzing around a bottle of bubbly—-the video shoot went much the same way….

Chic look: V and Sheek Louch were downtown tubbin'

Okay, so we weren’t really sippin on Don Don, but Haus of Yoe represented our bubbly, five-star haus love by curating an exquisite and expansive/teeming wardrobe of lingerie, swimsuits, and clubwear for the sexy video ladies to vibe in. We selected our favorite pieces by Public School gear for our male stars, House of Deréon, Baby Phat, Elle Macpherson Intimates, Betsy Johnson, TopShop, Kardashian by Bebe, designs by Valissa Yoe, and about $2Gs worth of oh-my-gaaarter! Agent Provacateur. The ladies were glam in all the right places. Check out this Best of Both Offices BTS vid to see their pretty faces:

That’s right. Valissa styled about 30 vixens. Christian Civera, Zoë Vickers, and yours truly Leo Fallon assisted this….lively….operation that went down at The Thompson LES‘s Above Allen lounge and penthouse suite. Naturally, a gathering of 30 vixens styled to the nines called for an entourage plus other camera crews to take note of this eye candy. Here is Eve Lora’s account of the activity:

In case you didn’t catch it, there were cameo appearances by Ghostface, a seriously cute shorty who spits a mean verse Little E, among others…


[Amid the chaos, I swear I saw/heard Jadakiss, but that could’ve been the effect of the 14 hr work day…]

Hour 14. The Aftermath. Glam Squad 2: Two More Sexy Women. Leo + Zoë

The official video debut is set for next week. Here’s a little sample for you to keep:

We’d like to thank producer Jim Muscarella, Natalie Cora on hair/makeup, and director James Del Gatto for this experience!



Haus of Yoe fam x owner of Williamsburg’s hair salon-cum-art gallery Rouge 58, Nadja Nebas has teamed up with New York fashion photog Chris Reed to house The Arche Pop Up Boutique, exhibiting Brooklyn’s emerging talent and established designers of fashion x jewelry.

For two weeks only, this inaugural installment will reflect the dark minimalism that has become an essential element of New York style. Playing on the industrial space of the gallery, clothes will be displayed suspended at different lengths from chains, whilst jewelry will be displayed hanging from a pillar in the middle of the store using satin ties and encased in a jewelry box.

After you’ve kicked you Halloween hangover, come join us in celebrating this power collabo of New York arts!

Check out the opening party on November 1st (Mon) with music by DJ Lloydski (DA Hardy Boyz) and a closing party on November 13th (Sat) with DJ Whitney Fierce.

And if you can’t make it to either of those soirees, be sure to swing by the Rouge 58 space in between those dates to explore the Arche Pop Up Boutique…

Join Leo, Micaela, and Zuzuka for a behind the scenes makeup session with stylist/DJ/makeup artist Valissa Yoe. The girls are prepping for an impromptu cavewoman-themed photoshoot….

And DAMN did they turn it out!

The whole shoot process (from concept and putting the word out for a photographer…to Facebooking the finished, edited shots) took all of 5 hours! These ladies are professionals with serious chemistry.

Without further ado, here is one succulent fruit of their breezy labor:

Get ready for Zuzuka Poderosa (pictured, left) and DJ Valissa's Halloween party @ Sullivan Hall! Hexed and Vexed photography. Makeup and earring by Valissa.

Eat it! Zombie Cavewomen bad mamma jammas!

And to put some voice behind that gorgeous Brazilian face, listen to Zuzuka’s spicy vocals and lyrics here!

Aaaaaaand let’s not forget to get a little sneak peek of what sound style V will serve up when she spins Halloween night @ Sullivan Hall here! + more makeup tutorials here.

So remember that MTV Jersey Shore x Just Dance 2 commercial we alluded to in a previous post/vid?

DRUMROLL, please!…

Look at what we’ve stumbled upon!!!

What you see embeded above <win! holla @ our humble coding skills!> is an INCREDIBLE time lapse composition by celeb photographer Diana Levine. For the 12+ hrs that we were on set—between directing the extra actors’ clubbing ensembles, working with makeup artist Jillian Villafane to ensure that Snooki and Ronnie looked super fresh, and handling wardrobe emergencies (e.g., running to TopShop to pickup better fitting pieces, dealing with sweat marks under the hot production lights, etc)—we were wondering what Diana was up to! Her camera was constantly clicking away. But as you can see in her BTS vid, there are an amazing number of things going on simultaneously on set, so we never got around to asking. Anyhow, we’re super glad we came across her mahhhvelous montage by way of Kerin Rose’s Facebook page!

And for some behind-the-scenes action à la chez Yoe, take a look at these:

Shoes: Nina (an OmarAlexander find!). Glasses: Kerin Rose. Wii'mote: Swarovski'd by Kerin Rose.

These key props were Snooki’s signature accents du jour.

ROLLING! Snookums gets the screen treatment.

The glasses by Kerin Rose translated so well on screen! And Jillian’s expert hair treatment looked film-ready flawless. Get ’em with the cleavage, Snooks.

Call it a JerV Shore Sandwhich. Eat it!!!

A break between takes. I believed this was snapped during lunch hour… (see caption–har har har)

Vogue! Team Yoe strikes a pose.

Give it up for the supporting cast, Omar Figueroa and Leo Fallon! The amazing Omar Alexander held it down as official wardrobe assistant extraordinaire (so professional, so on point!…as always with sphynxface), while Leo took the supporting cast idea quite literally—you may recall seeing this mohawk’d minx in Diana’s video—as she pulled double duty, jumping in front of the camera as a principle extra and jockeying around behind the camera as part of the wardrobe crew…all the while in 4″ heels! Here she is (finally in flats) with Snooki and Ronnie in their street wear at the end of the day:

That's a wrap! Our three stars after a 12+ hour day.

Aaaaaaand last but certainly not least, below is our VE™ video from the beginning of the day! Valissa gives us a behind the scenes look at what she and Team Yoe pulled for this production. Featured pieces are dresses by Bebe, shirts and blazers by Affliction and Ed Hardy, jeans by Armani Exchange, shoes by Nina, and those exclusive Swarovski’d accouterments by Kerin Rose.

We can’t wait to see the final cut! Director Howard Grandison, Producer Adam Palmer, and Cinematographer Matt Workman hinted that the commercial will be ready to air quite soon and may be broadcast later this month. Stay tuned!!
