THIS GIRL CAN’T HELP IT!
Ponyboy’s most recent women’s editorial was inspired by the Jayne Mansfield 1950s cult film “The Girl Can’t Help It!” We couldn’t think of a model better suited than the glamorous and curvy pinup model known as Doris Mayday. Doris, as you must already know, is one of our very favorites. We adore The Cult of Doris Mayday!
To accentuate Doris’s bewitching look, our stylist Melissa Amato pulled extraordinary vintage pieces from her fabulous Etsy store, “Crash The Party 1956.” And adding an additional twist to our editorial, Tony Medina, from His Vintage Touch, coiffured not only Doris’ own hair, but two wigs as well. He put Doris in a beautiful platinum blonde wig, as well as an oversized raven-haired work of art. What a genius idea! Tony is like the “Mr. Kenneth” to Marilyn Monroe. He always designs genius over-the-top creations for Doris’ shoots and personal appearances. He is her preferred hairdresser of choice. Lastly, we were also in awe of our location, the beautiful home of Las Vegas residents Leo & Bridget Villasenor. This mid-Century home was the perfect backdrop for this story.
