On a recent trip back home to New York I visited with my good friends at Crooked Brook. When I worked for them in their studio I had a menagerie of jobs [almost too many to list], but for the purpose of this post, I’ll tell you I did modeling for them.
…For those of you who don’t know, Crooked Brook is a design label used by the Broad Street Studio’s art division [and I’m sure this still means nothing to you, but I promise there is a point to this post]. Crooked Brook is known around the world for their high-quality, custom-made chef apparel, made in the USA [That’s the United States of America, not United South Asia] They also offer a wide selection of custom embroidered apparel…
I modeled an array of chef coats, hoodies, hats, and polo shirts, learned tips and techniques to improve my modeling skills and how to get the perfect shot to impress anyone, whether they’re shopping for a chef coat or not.
While I was visiting the studio, Pam showed me a link to one of their customer’s blogs. Apparently I did something right modeling their coats because Jason Sandeman was convinced to participate in a Chef Coat Giveaway with Crooked Brook after seeing this photo of me [left] on Crooked Brook’s site.
The reason I’m sharing this is because I was absolutely shocked [in a good way] by how Jason described the photo. His exact words were, “…she’s the one who sold me on it! I love the attitude. The Fuck-You-My-Bearnaise-is-Perfect-and-I’ll-cut-your-balls-off-if-you-touch-it kind of attitude. That’s what will get her in the door.” You can read Jason’s full post about the chef coat giveaway on his blog “Well Done Chef!” and also get some really great cooking tips, advice on eating right, recipes and perhaps some more chef coat giveaways with Crooked Brook!
I admit I have a tendency to not smile in many photos, but the fact that he worded it that way makes me chuckle every time I read it because it’s not the first time I’ve been told I look like I’ll become violent if you so much as look at me wrong. Here are a few examples of my modeling work with the studio…
Despite the fact that I’m blogging about it, my modeling history isn’t exactly something I flaunt. I’m a rather modest person to begin with and having people look at me is a tad awkward though I suppose it’s just a medium I would have to get used to if I choose to pursue it. At any rate, I guess I have a very distinct style that say’s, “don’t fuck with me!” [hence the “Kerrminator” title] So, if there is anyone out there looking for a pissed-off-looking model, contact me! HAHA!
