The makeup for this shoot was inspired by Audrey Hepburn photos from the early 1950's and the hairstyle has a 1940's look.

I used a 5 foot long softbox positioned vertically to light the beautiful satin dress from the camera's right side. To fill in the shadows, I used another softbox on the left that was set about a stop lower intensity than the first one.

The background is a grey muslin lit with a a gridded X800 and directed across the background to the accentuate the wrinkles by creating shadows. The strobes were triggered with Cybersyncs. The post-processing was done with Lightroom 3.2 and Photoshop CS4.
