I think the last shoot I ever did with him,
00:03
he airbrushed us headtotoe in different colors.
00:10
I think at one point I was green,
00:12
then blue, Stella was purple.
00:15
Headtotoe, but again, with makeup as well.
00:18
It was really, really wild and avantgarde,
00:22
yet beautiful.
00:23
At the end, we're in a gallery in Soho,
00:26
and I say to Kevyn,
00:29
"Oh man, there's no bathrooms, we can't shower
00:32
"at the end of the shoot," and I'm like,
00:34
"Do you have any baby wipes?"
00:35
and he's like, "Oh my God.
00:36
"Because we've been doing this for the past few days,
00:38
"I've ran out of baby wipes."
00:40
So we had to leave, fully headtotoe in green.
00:44
I looked like the Incredible Hulk,
00:46
and he helped me hail a cab
00:48
because nobody would stop to give me a cab,
00:51
and Stella Tennant was walking out with her stroller
00:53
with her child, purple, fully purple,
00:56
and just went on the subway.
00:57
She was like, "Forget it, I can't do anything about this,"
00:59
and we were laughing so much.
01:04
Kevyn was like, "I can't believe it, I'm so sorry.
01:06
"Let me go to the pharmacy."
01:08
And we were like, "It's all right,"
01:09
"We're just going to go home and take a shower, I guess."
01:12
But headtotoe, and he's standing outside
01:15
hailing me a cab, and it was a real ...
01:20
What's the word, just frivolously silly
01:23
and charming moment of like, "That's it.
01:26
"That's our day, see you soon, Kevyn.
01:29
"I'm headtotoe in green body paint."
