Yup... It's Me! Shana J. for Liz Claiborne

Many of you have hit me up on email or come into the store with a magazine in hand folded to the new Liz Claiborne Spring Collection ads, asking, "Girl, is that you!?" Well... YES IT IS ME! In addition to the ads in VOGUE, In Style, Elle, GLAMOUR, The New York Times, Oprah and Lucky, I'm featured on billboards, bus shelters and bus ads nationally and there's even a commercial: SO CRAZY!! Here's how it went down...this fall at Brooklyn Flea, I was approached by some talent scouts to be in the ads for the new Liz Claiborne Collection. At first I was skeptical and didn't expect to hear anything else about it. But once I got the call and heard that Isaac Mizrahi was on board to refresh the brand, I was down! You can read more about his thinking behind the campaign and the "regular girl" casting here. Overall, it was a great experience and a fun way to spend a couple of days. No worries ladies... while I could DEFINITELY get used to the model lifestyle, I won't be leaving Collecther anytime soon. Check out the other photos below and click on the images for a larger view. Later!
