You look gorgeous,
00:02
really chic, demure,
00:04
the colors are really good for spring.
00:06
Mm-hmm, mm-hmm,
00:08
and I love it and I think it's very elegant
00:12
and very, like, like, like young Laura Bush.
00:17
You look classic.
00:18
It's totally chic, like I've never
00:20
had a sexual thought before in my life.
00:23
It's, sort of, like, elegant, and joyless
00:26
in a way that I think is very exciting.
00:29
[Brunette Woman] Perfect, great.
00:30
I mean, I think we've nailed it.
00:32
Who's rack of awesome clothes is that?
00:34
Oh, that's a rack for an upcoming cover.
00:37
It's for a big hip-hop star.
00:41
I think we're ready for the fitting picture.
00:43
Okay.
00:45
Maybe, just like a, I don't know,
00:47
I think hands down, a bit more simple.
00:51
This is really just about the outfit.
00:52
I think we should lose a little bit of attitude.
00:56
Sam, do you want to be in it with me
00:57
like we're sorority sister?
00:59
Yeah, come here, come here, come here.
01:00
It can be like Charlie's Angels.
01:01
(camera shutters)
01:10
It just smells expensive.
01:11
Wait, what time is it?
01:14
You know what I mean?
01:15
It's different, different story.
01:16
Different story.
01:17
I feel like it's like,
01:18
She's wearing a real classy outfit
01:19
but she always remember who she was.
01:23
[Brunette Woman] I think it's a great helmet.
01:27
We'd have to figure out how to use it.
01:29
This makes a statement, you know?
01:31
It definitely does.
01:33
What if, maybe, I wore this over my outfit
01:36
and we incorporated both of our visions?
01:38
I think that would be really weird.
01:40
So, definitely no?
01:41
No, it's a definite, definite no.
01:43
Okay, what do you think Sam?
01:46
Let's not, let's not do that.
01:47
That's not fair.
01:54
I like my outfit too.
01:57
What I lack in loving it I make up for
02:00
in respecting it.
02:02
Don't worry, you're gonna look beautiful.
02:04
You should feel good.
02:05
You don't need all that extra stuff.
02:06
You look perfect the way you are right now.
02:08
Could we bring this on the day?
02:09
Just in case.
02:10
[Brunette Woman] We're gonna leave it here.
02:12
We're gonna leave it in the office.
02:17
Thanks guys, I actually learned a lot.
02:19
Come here.
02:21
Okay, you're not, you're not big huggers.
02:23
That's all right.
