    Robin Wright in White by Emma Pritchard

    Emma Pritchard pulled an all-white wardrobe for actress Robin Wright's Los Angeles Confidential cover story. "If you look at the clothing" – which included a cutout Yigal Azrouël gown, a draped-cowl tunic by Donna Karan, and a Tom Ford body-con number – "there's a lot of texture and structured silhouettes," Pritchard said. "It's not too floaty or dreamy."

    The stylist noted, "With white, there's always a simplicity to it, meaning you can see the actor or actress, and that's important when it's a feature on him or her – you don't want anything too overpowering." She also mentioned it's springtime, after all: "We wanted to keep it light."

    Emma Pritchard Styles Robin Wright for Capitol File

    Niche Media tapped Emma Pritchard to style Robin Wright for Capitol File's Spring Fashion Issue. "For each story, I put together a mood board, and Robin is so edgy and fresh that it felt like a black-and-white moment was appropriate," said Alexandria Geisler, associate fashion editor. "I got in touch with Emma and described the mood, which was her jumping off point, and from there, she called in the outfits on the runway reflecting the trend and brought them to set."

    Keeping in mind that the actress wanted the wardrobe to differ from that of her "House of Cards" character, Claire Underwood's, Pritchard put her in a strapless Donna Karan dress for the cover, and selected garments like a Vera Wang silk chiffon gown and a Salvatore Ferragamo crew-neck shirt with whipstitch detail for the interior images. "Robin wasn't scared of wearing anything sheer or short or with slits; she was happy being in bare feet and a little freer, whereas Claire sticks to pencil skirts," Pritchard remarked. "She was so precise about what she wanted and the shoot became about the way she wore the clothes and how she moved in them."

    Pritchard called the commission one of her favorites: "We got on really, really well and our visions were in sync." On a similar note, Geisler added, "I love working with Emma and everyone on my team tries to use her as much as possible. She has such a great attitude, is open to collaboration, and always makes the best pulls."

    Emma Pritchard Styles the United Airlines Crowd

    Emma Pritchard relied on her expertise in styling crowds for United Airline's latest promotions. "That's what I specialize in – groups of people," Pritchard explained. "It's one of my strengths. I'd imagine that groups of people combined with travel would be some stylists' nightmare, but it's not daunting to me."

    She packed twelve suitcases full of high-end brands such as Brunello Cucinelli and Ermenegildo Zegna for the 25 talent before heading down to Texas and then Rio. "I always over-prepare," she remarked. "The real challenge these days is confirming sizes ... I can guess that the models will be sample size, but with men's tailoring, for example, there's so many variables including sleeve length." For the boat shot, Pritchard brought along numerous swim trunks and 40 bikinis, by her count. "The man had to have well-fitted bottoms and I picked a halter top for the woman so the garments stayed put," she said. "I don't want to compromise the photographer's picture by having to run on set and fix something."

    Abigail Breslin Comes of Age in Style by Emma Pritchard

    Emma Pritchard focused on striking the right balance for 17-year-old Abigail Breslin's recent spread in the New York Post. "Truth be told, it's an awkward age because she can't go too racy, but she can't go too demure either," the stylist explained. "I picked more covered-up options that had a sexy silhouette to highlight her beautiful figure."

    Pritchard noted the "August: Osage County" actress was particularly taken with the edgier accessories on set: "She loved the Reflecting Spheres ear cuff and three-finger Return ring, both by BJØRG, and the long necklaces … [Abigail's] mom came by for the last few shots and kept asking where the pieces were from. She was looking for Christmas presents for Abigail!"

    Tom Corbett & Co. Usher in the Holiday Season for Millenia

    A Tom Corbett-led B&A team put out two editorials for the holiday issue of The Mall at Millenia Magazine: "Modern Classics" and "Iconic Beauty."

    "We take an annual field trip to the mall in Orlando to meet with the marketing team, review the previous issue, discuss what's new and what stores are opening, and which are remodeling," explained stylist Emma Pritchard. "2013 saw the launch of numerous new stores, including Prada and Saint Laurent, and with such a wealth of designers to work with, we wanted to emphasize the iconic ensembles and craftsmanship that each is known for ... thus, the concept 'Timeless Elegance' was born."

    Pritchard presented the theme to Corbett and prop stylist Tara Marino, and let them come up with their own interpretations. "For the 'Modern Classics' fashion story – which used a lot of old Hollywood poses – Tom brought in dramatic lighting that merged that classic brand of glamour with the holiday-time glamour of Millenia." Titilayo Bankole provided the manicures.

    The "Iconic Beauty" spread marked the group's first-ever beauty story for the magazine, after three-plus years of collaborating with the shopping center. "Tom's casting was spot-on," Pritchard noted. "We all did a double-take when the model, Olivia, transformed into Elizabeth Taylor. The leather-and-mink fur Bally coat pushed it over the top."

    Emma Pritchard's 'Power Play' for Gotham Magazine

    Emma Pritchard conceived her "Power Play" editorial in Gotham Magazine's fall fashion issue with the man as protagonist. 

    "I envisioned something 'Wall Street'-esque – as in the movie," said the stylist. "I pulled double-breasted jackets so he would resemble a Gordon Gekko figure. I made sure there was plenty of tweed and pinstripe, and different colors and textures." Pritchard paid close attention to the accessories; each frame contains a different pocket square, pair of cuff links, statement watch, leather belt, or briefcase. "It was so many components, but I went over-the-top because the man is typically a prop in fashion stories and I wanted him to take the lead and for the woman to balance it out."

    Pritchard reached that sartorial equilibrium thanks to Tiffany's recently-released Atlas jewelry collection, featured prominently in the photos. "She wore some great watches, as well," Pritchard noted. "I wanted her to have a lot of range and not to be a boring corporate person ... to show menswear as womenswear and not only 'power dressing,' with a slit up the side of a dress and a jacket on top. I think a man's suit on a woman is just as sexy."

    The wardrobe – which included pieces by Ermenegildo Zegna, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren Black Label, and Salvatore Ferragamo – was photographed in Manhattan's Financial District, with the Gotham team's "base camp" being Cipriani.

    HORNITOS IN MOTION WITH KAREEM BLACK

    Kareem Black works with Hornitos Tequila to create a series of GIFs showing people living it up during a night out on the town. This fun night filled with spontaneous happenings of course could only be possible if Hornitos is involved. The idea of doing GIFs came from The Barbarian Group agency and was created as mini repeating ads of moments throughout the night. Each GIF is different and quirky in its own right, with Mexican wrestlers and people in bear suits making cameos. Our own Emma Pritchard styled this party night shoot.

    Most of the GIFs are closed circle loops, meaning that the beginning is the end and thus there is no real beginning. Another challenge of the shoot was capturing one of the GIFs in "bullet time". For this Kareem set up 13 different cameras that were synced to fire at once and, in doing so, capture the same moment from 13 different angles. As a very hands-on photographer, Kareem also excelled at directing the actors to play out the party scenes.

    Recent Editorial Photography by Kareem Black

    Kareem Black's photographs appear on the cover and in recent issues of Page Six Magazine, ESPN Magazine, and Inked Magazine. Black photographed New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz for the cover and a five page spread in Page Six Magazine, which was styled by Emma Pritchard. For ESPN Magazine, Black photographed up-and-coming NASCAR driver Darrell Wallace Jr. for their "Next" issue. He also shot rapper Machine Gun Kelly for the recent cover of Inked Magazine.



    Black's shoot with Cruz took place at a studio in Chelsea just a few weeks after the Giants' Super Bowl win. The accompanying article discusses Cruz's rise to fame in the past year, from his stellar performance with the Giants and his signature touchdown salsa dance to his recent contract with IMG Models and exclusive invite from Anna Wintour to the annual Met Ball. Black found Cruz, "tremendously charasmatic and super-smart." Cruz was open to the many clothing options and the abstract and strange set pieces. Black adds the Cruz was "awesome and cool" and they had a great shoot.



    Black traveled to the Joe Gibbs racing facility in Charlotte, NC to shoot Darrell Wallace, Jr, for ESPN Magazine's "Next" issue. The annual issue profiles sports' up-and-coming athletes. Wallace Jr. is featured as NASCAR's next big thing. Black is a self-professed huge NASCAR fan and was very excited to shoot Wallace Jr. for ESPN. He adds that the two talked a lot about racing and where Wallace Jr. is headed in his career.





    The shoot for Inked took place in two cities. Black shot Machine Gun Kelly in Brooklyn for the feature on his tattooes and then traveled to the rapper's hometown, Cleveland, to photograph him for the cover. MGK is a rising rapper who was named MTV's Hottest MC Breakthrough 2011 and recently signed to Diddy's Bad Boy Records. Black calls him a "great performer" and found that off-camera, he is quiet and reserved but comes alive when the camera is turned on. Black adds that MGK is a "genuine guy with no pretense and a definite entertainer."

    Kareem Black Photographs Chris Brown for Page Six Magazine

    Chris Brown is promoting his upcoming album "F.A.M.E." with an interview and spread in Page Six Magazine. Kareem Black photographed the R&B singer for the March 10th issue. Inside, Brown discusses his passion for street art, what he's learned in the past two years, and why his new album is dedicated to his fans.

    Black photographed Brown at Opera Gallery in Soho, New York City. Two of Brown's favorite street artists, Ron English and Mr. Brainwash, are currently showing in the gallery. Black captured Brown in front of his favorite pieces including, "The Resuscitation of Immortality," a colorful painting of Casper the friendly ghost by English, seen above. Black found Brown to be very professional and focused and was "very impressed with how self-aware he was and with his knowledge of the new "downtown" art scene."

    The March 10th issue of Page Six Magazine is on newsstands now.
