Makeup artist Jo Baker transformed model, Michele Ouellet into a smoky-eyed boss for VIOLET GREY. The vivacious model/amateur surfer/Rihanna obsessive/blogger (she documents her life and travels at kissser.com
) was discovered by a model scout while shopping in San Francisco with her father at the age of 15. The Napa Valley native placed modeling prospects on hold to finish out her high school’s volleyball season (the team went on to win the championships). It’s that same tenacity and passion that inevitably led to a successful career which includes appearances in Vogue
and Vanity Fair
. She is also co-founder of Lorenza
, a Napa Valley produced rosé that rivals its French counterparts. Here, the model shares her day on set with VIOLET GREY.
