Earlier this year, Modern Luxury Magazine shot, for its March fashion issue, at a swanky Beverly Hills Montage residence. Our Perle sofa, Scala bed and Godiva ottoman were selected by interior designers, Alecia Johnson and Charles Johnson of Pearl Design LLC, as a few of the special pieces for the interior decor. Hit TV show Empire‘s lead actress and celebrity, Taraji P. Hensen, was selected as the leading lady to feature for the fashion issue. She describes the shoot as “Boss” and “The Perfect Storm.”
National Fashion Director for Modern Luxury Magazine, James Aguiar had a vision for the cover of this, the fashion issue – to illustrate a look equally sophisticated and sexy. Inspiration for the photoshoot came from the idea of today’s “Boss Lady” or “Power Woman,” making her mark in today’s world. Hensen, who has worked with photographer John Russo in the past, states she felt comfortable during the shoot and that the interior environment helped her feel “boss.” It also helped being dressed in noteworthy designers Lanvin, Ferragamo and Donna Karan.
The photoshoot took place at a private residence’s unit at the Montage Beverly Hills in California, with the interior beautifully designed by Charles and Alecia Johnson with Pearl Design, LLC, who sourced our furniture through retail partner Noel Home, Houston, TX. Our furniture pieces were shown many times throughout the photoshoot and helped take this shoot to the next level and bring the overall “Power Woman” emotive together.
