I’m dying to do a depressed starlet/ showgirl type shoot. I’m envisioning a beautiful entertainer sitting in her dressing room, crying in front of her vanity. Makeup will be scattered in front of her, and maybe some shoots can have a beautiful wig or headpiece falling off her head or lying at her feet. Her makeup is smeared from crying and there’s a bottle of pills in front of her and/ or a bottle of alcohol. I want to convey a beautiful, glamorous career (whether it be vintage like Marilyn Monroe or even present day like a beautiful Vegas showgirl) but have the woman almost dying inside. She seems happy and gorgeous on the outside, yet is miserable and withering away within.
Although this picture doesn’t really show much, it gives some sort of a vanity desk set up and can be used as some sort of inspiration toward the shoot.
