A Valissa Yoe x Nicolas Padron Collaboration

Ever have one of those days where everything goes so right?

Timing on. Vibing on. Everything on…

Well, that was the way our styling job at M.A.C. Pro Studio went yesterday. Oh, we fancy. So fancy, in fact, that we actually shared an elevator with Swizzy, himself! Random…..?…..Holla!

Everything big. It was gorgeousness all around. In collaboration with photographer Nicolas Padron, MAC Pro makeup artist Armando Guajardo, hair stylist Kimiyuki Masawa, model Machiko from Wilhelmina, The Haus of Yoe made it happen!

Drawing inspiration from the sultry sophistication of the 1990s (reads: minimalist accessories and makeup, sheer fabrics, femme fatale attitude, etc.), Valissa and Leo were at-the-ready with their rack full of gowns, lingerie, and leather. Valissa and the newest Haus of Yoe inductee, Christian A. helped Valissa assemble a wardrobe of various labels like Ralph Lauren, Betsey Johnson, Chanel, United Nude, Burberry, Bijules, and vintage finds.

Collaborating with the rest of the photoshoot cast was a breeze! Machiko was able to translate Nicolas’ energy into strong poses, while Kimi and Armando kept her looking fresh-faced and coifed for over 6 hours.

Armando applying a highlighting shadow (oxymoron, much?) to Machiko's lovely lids.

Working and sitting pretty.

Femmes Fatales: Valissa putting the final touches on this look, while Kimi teases Machiko's hair.

Watch the collabo in action: 

And the whole team on another look:

Aaaaaaand of course the day wasn’t complete without a mini-photoshoot of our own! 

[sidenote: We’re continually amazed by iPhone 4’s image/video quality. Isn’t it….breath-taking? *cough*]

We look forward to working with the talents involved in this shoot again sometime soon. We’d also like to thank M.A.C. Pro for their studio space and generous hospitality—can’t wait to visit Armando there the next time we stock up on makeup!

And last, but certainly not least, thank you for reading! We live for your Haus of Yoe love!!! Please leave us any and all comments, compliments, and critiques. We’d love to hear from you!

Stay tuned for more updates on past, present, and future projects. We’re going international. Hint: Tokyo TV! Look out!

Ciao for now


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.

Thaaaaaat’s right! You heard it here:

Tomorrow night is your chance to catch DJ Valissa drop that bass @ Belmont Lounge with the CMJ Showcase, Class of 2010 line-up. Brought to you by HoneyMag, this SHAMELE$$ School for Girls cast of fierce females will be sure to have you voguing out and shaking that booty! And all for a good cause! As noted in the flyer below, $5 donations go toward the Girls Inc. cause, which works to empower little ladies across the US to be “strong, smart, and bold.” DJ-stylist-designer Valissa couldn’t be more honored to showcase her sound at this event!

Get behind it!


I had the pleasure of DJing for Roxy Cottontail while she performed her smash hit she wrote with another favorite, Larry Tee, titled “Let’s Make Nasty.”
