I Style, Women

On My Own Two Feet – Amy Purdy

Amy Purdy, who inspired a nation on Dancing with the Stars and has been called a hero by Oprah Winfrey, reveals the intimate details of her triumphant comeback from the brink of death to making history as a Paralympic snowboarder in her new book from HarperCollins Publishers available December 30th, 2014.

Two years ago I walked on set in Los Angeles with People Magazine to shoot the inspirational Amy Purdy. The two of us had an instant connection that you sometimes feel as a stylist with a new client. At this point, she was challenging herself everyday on Dancing with the Stars and gearing up to go on tour with Oprah. A month or so later, in an email out of the blue, she asked if I would help her out with a few red carpet events and her Toyota tour. And so it goes, two years later of styling this beautiful woman, a true friendship has developed. This weekend she will be walking down the biggest red carpet of her life to get married, and I could not be more excited to be there cheering her on.

Here are some of my favorite styling moments with Amy…..and just wait as there will be many more!
