Through a turn of fortuitous (and perhaps not-so-coincidental) events, Dani recently had the pleasure of working with one of her all-time favorite models, Adriana Lima, as her makeup artist on the set of an upcoming campaign. It’s not the first time they’ve worked together, either – Adriana was one of our OG Monster Mash Salon clients, and she and Dani worked together during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2015.
It’s true that certain people seem to circle back into our lives, seemingly by chance… but Dani has another notion. Maybe this is more the case of: put out what you want, and who you want to surround yourself with, and lo and behold, it (or they) will come to you. In any case, working alongside Adriana always puts Dani in good spirits, as she’s someone with real heart and soul who isn’t afraid to show it. Which, if you know anything about The Body of Art, then you know that we’re all about authenticity, thoughtfulness, and human-to-human connection. Also glitter. We love glitter.
Here are some of Dani’s thoughts on her history with Adriana, and how their meeting got her gears turning about that little “Law of Attraction”:
“In my experience, I don’t get star struck – hardly ever. When you work with your fair share of celebrities, and see them almost every day on the street, you start to look at them as one and the same as yourself. You observe how they interact with you and often wonder if it’s really them, or just something they put on… whether it’s a negative or positive experience. But I truly believe that what you perceive in your mind, you will attract to you. And I have had some very notably lovely experiences meeting celebrities. But literally the angel of all of them is my girl Adriana. She’s genuine, authentic, attentive, and loving, but very steadfast to her beliefs, and so positively grateful for most every moment. Adriana is just as present with you as you are with her and her humbleness makes her more beautiful than any model or celebrity I’ve ever encountered.”
