Inspired FOTD - Lauryn Hill in Ex Factor
When Lauryn Hill first exploded onto the scene I was ALL IN! I would stare intently at her look in videos, movies and magazines. We were never exposed to a beauty of her caliber and I wanted to soak up every bit of it.
One of my most favorite songs and videos of Ms. Hill is 'Ex-Factor'. You are pretty hard pressed to find a still close up of her look in this vid I guess because of the effects used in the video, if you recall it has a very dark and ethereal look to it. A couple of weeks ago on the Billy Brasfield Fan page a color image of Ms. Hill was posted and I was reminded at once of how much I loved the look. Fast forward to this week when I went out for dinner and drinks with my friends. The blues were calling me (shadows that is) so I went with it. The lighting in my room has a mind of its own so the pics I took of the look kinda reminded me of the video look.
I did record the look BUT the camera cut off before the end AND I lost the first part of the vid. Ah, good times. Anyway, here is how the look came out...
