Dominique Nguyen ‘Cheap red lipstick’
As fait would have it, Dominique Nguyen would bump into her muse & old friend while hunched over a burrito bowl in Chipotle on Beverly.
“It was my friend Kiri, who I met when we were both living in Hong Kong. She had moved to LA a couple months before & I was in town for the week, but jet-lag & the June gloom had me laying low. We exchanged OMG’s & hugged. She had just come from a casting so her makeup was already done. “Wanna shoot?” I asked. We walked the one-minute trek to my airbnb where I rummaged through my suitcase & pulled out my favourite snug 501’s & a vintage tee I scored at rose bowl. Perfect fit. Topped off the look with some cheap red lipstick & we were out the door.”
