Dear Shaded Viewers,
I remember when I put Simone on the cover of JOYCE in 1996, our New York Editor, Stefano Tonchi, told me that if I was working for Conde Nast they would have walked me over to the elevator and pushed Down. Gustavo and I had an amazing time with the lovely Simone, the coolest model I have ever had the pleasure of working with and a framed print from our shoot has been hanging on my wall for the past 12 years.
Melvin and Simone then and now.
