During the coldest of snowstorms last winter, it made perfect sense to have a bikini shoot in a sauna.
In a lovely mansion north just of Toronto, model Jennifer Steele posed in Spring/Summer 2011 swimwear trends, including a bikini by German-Canadian swimwear designer Katharine Demarchelier paired with a vibrant scarf by Italian fashion powerhouse Missoni.
Another look was pulled together by color accents, including a string bikini by New York based designer Mara Hoffman for RAC. The hot pink strings of the patterned bikini paired with a matching shade of neon toe polish demanded that makeup take a backseat to the loud pops of pink.
By keeping the smoky eye void of harsh lines and dark brows, making lip color bright but sheer and using a highlighter with a dewy finish, the makeup helped keep things subtly glamorous.

“Montreal-born Missy Peregrym may be the daughter of a minister but she is certainly not camera shy. Before landing the lead role of Andy McNally in the popular Canadian police drama, Rookie Blue, the young actress appeared in a variety of TV shows, including The Dark Angel, opposite Jessica Alba. TORO caught up with Ms. Peregrym just in time to bring you this exclusive gallery to get you primed for the premiere of Rookie Blue‘s second season on June 16.”
I got a last minute phone call from the beautiful SOPRANO Erin Cooper Gay…” Ivy! Are you free tonight? I need to look like Kate Middleton!”
I usually call Erin my Blonde Bombshell Gisele Bundchen. They look a like don’t you think?
How am I going to make her look like Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge? Well with the help of a brunnette wig, an eyebrow pencil, a fake bouquet and a tiara. I think we did a pretty good job!
It was all for fun anyways, the TSO’s “Last night of the Proms” .
Here are some highlights of my beautiful Brides in 2010 so far…Although wedding season is over, I still have a few more weddings this year.
Some Soon to be Brides have already booked me as their official Hair and Makeup Artist for 2011 (September ????).
Yes! we had the trial already! I guess Wedding Season comes all year around!
It was so much fun to get Golden Globe Winner, Sally Hawkins, ready for 2 days of press at TIFF 2010. She was SO sweet and extremely down to earth. The AMAZING Celebrity Makeup Artist, Alice Kilpatrick, did her makeup and I did her hair.
On the red carpet for “Made In Dagenham.”
Some GLAMOUR for the Red Carpet at night! Looking Dazzling for the “Submarine” Premiere. Hollywood Waves and Smoky Eyes.
Hilarious!!!! Was awesome working with these guys for the FUBAR II Premiere for TIFF 2010. I can’t tell when they are in character or just being themselves.
Ivy: ” Can I help you with your wig?”
David Lawrence: “Be very careful, it’s from 1994.”

Small world! I also bumped into Katia Taylor, Photographer Extraordinaire and one of my brides 🙂
Sarah Lian has taken Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore by storm. This Sexy siren has grace the pages of FHM and Flare Magazine.
I shot with Sarah years ago, when she still lived in Canada. She is visiting Toronto for a short period of time, so we put together a daring photo shoot!
Sexy, Steamy, and in a dirty Motel Room? I absolutely love how the photos turned out!
Who knew, that big wild hair and black kohl liner can make such a difference?
I had so much fun doing this shoot with Bryony and Joey! This is not your typical wedding engagement photo session near the railroad tracks or under a tree.
This couple had so much personality and personal style!
I even put in hair extensions to give Bryony a complete modern vintage look.
Joey’s suit…totally Mad Men.
All the amazing photos captured by the one and only Tara McMullen.
