The Scoop On A Real Photoshoot: Watching Garnier Fructis Style For Rolling Stone
Apparently, Gossip Girl isn't the only thing shot at the Empire Hotel. Chuck Bass’s stomping grounds is also a prime locale for photo shoots, like the Rolling Stone cover shoot we stopped by last Friday. But will that cover ever hit newsstands? Well, you decide. For the first time ever, Rolling Stone is putting their Choose the Cover competition in readers’ hands. One of two emerging artists—either The Sheepdogs or Lelia Broussard, who we hung with last week—will win not only their very own magazine cover but also a major record deal with Atlantic. But while the prizes are up totally up to voters, the cover shoot styling was left to the professionals. So we swung by the set to see what it's like creating an image for someone who doesn't yet have one (ie. not Bieber, or Bieber 2.0) and to see if the behind the scenes action really is all smiles, rainbows, and cover subjects eating cheeseburgers in blue jeans, like those front-of-book blurbs so diligently report.
