IDINA MENZEL & TAYE DIGGS 2008 TONY AWARDS RED CARPET PHOTOS: Unlimited Together we're unlimited Together we'll be the greatest team
the moment you walked in the room and laid your eyes on me. and then i knew it, i knew you were the one meant for me - Confession: This is called the Two Shot, not sold as much as
the fashion shot and we are talking about women and fashion. Women are the majority when it comes to buying the glossies and they want to see fashion. So and they want to see it all, vertically, the fashion shotand it must be a little emasculating for the men to have to step aside. I really felt for Taye here. I was trying to call him to get his fashion shot or even a good head shot but he kept making faces
like this serious one.
I have shot Idina before and sometimes she does this irritating doe in headlights stare. Gurl just relax, we love you and want to do good by you, but stop with this face. Hey I hear your new CD drops soon and you will be playing the Borgata in Atlantic City next week. (Which by the way is the same week as the opening for: The Water Club– a signature hotel by Borgata. This luxurious property will introduce a new brand of hospitality to Atlantic City, offering a unique personality of its own, while just steps away from the entertainment, nightlife, and dining of Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa. The 43-story, $400 million hotel will feature 800 upgraded guestrooms and suites; a two-story 'spa in the sky,' 18,000 square feet of meeting space; three Residences modeled after chic, urban lofts; five heated pools -indoor and outdoor, each offering a distinct experience; and six retail shops, while offering direct access to and from Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.) http://www.idinamenzel.com/tours/5582Ok I have no idea why Taye turned his back, maybe it was the flashes, maybe thats why you sometimes have that doe look stare, you are forcing your eyes to bear the brunt. but look at the final product it doesn't exude your beauty or spirit. So please, please Idina practice, have Taye photograph you at home. Your talent will take you far, but your beauty and talent will take you even further, but you have to give us good face!!
now theres the photo I would want, look at that smile
Girl you are working that necklace. It must have been taped into place, it did not move, it was kicking it in place.
Check out this happy face when Idina greets her friend Laura Benanti who later went on to win a TONY Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical "Gypsy"
why can't you give us a smile like this all the time, well maybe not so much teeth, but they are teeth to die for
How about a shot like this after Taye asked one of the photographers to take your pictures. Unlimited Together we're unlimited Together we'll be the greatest team bye byeback to my stepford wife pose, which is entirely too serious Youtube of the meeting between Idina and Laura, I shot the photos with my other hand.
