per­sonal style

The in­side scoop on our cover shoot with Carly Rae Jepsen.

ELLE (Canada) - - Insider -

There was a thun­der­storm the day we shot our Au­gust cover in Toronto; some­how the dra­matic weather suited the moody vibe we were go­ing for. (Joan Jett was a ma­jor style in­spo, and she’s not syn­ony­mous with sun­shine.) Play­ing off our (ac­tu­ally very up­beat) cover star’s own rock ’n’ roll per­sonal style, we pulled all Cana­dian de­sign­ers for an ’80s feel with lots of lay­ers and a muted colour pal­ette. Su­sana Hong brought a messy, cool-girl thing to Jepsen’s newly black hair, while makeup artist Si­mone Otis fo­cused on play­ing up those in­cred­i­ble blue eyes. n

Melissa For­rest, nail ex­pert for Shop­pers Drug Mart, painted it black. GOSH Nail Pol­ish in Night Sky ($7). For de­tails, see Shop­ping Guide.
