Ofcourse the biggest news of the past weekend has been that the NY State legalized same sex marriages. That along with the Pride Parade on Sunday was definitely one of the most historic times in NYC. I don’t know why for the love of God I did not think about doing this shoot in the parade!! I thought about the idea entirely after I was done with the shoot at Grand Central terminal. Oh well. Nonetheless, congratulations to all the gay people in NY. It was a long time coming and I am proud to be a New Yorker where equality always prevails.
Ok so about my outfit. It’s really not an outfit. It is just some chiffon material I draped around my body over a skirt [which I got tailored in India a million years ago]. But all that henna art you see on my leg and shoulder is the fabulous work of my friend Hetal Somaya. I have wanted to incorporate henna in a shoot for months and ofcourse even though I love the traditional Indian and Arabic henna art; I wanted to do something different. So on the leg we ended up doing a creepy tree and on the shoulder we did a skeleton of a snake. Although by the time we actually shot the pictures a lot of the henna had come off and you can’t really see the skull of the snake or some of the tree, I think overall we just had a really good time experimenting.
