If you are out on the town and you see a gal with a fierce black bob and mile long gams wearing a camera around her neck, that is probably Brooke Nipar you have spotted. I had the pleasure of working on one of my favorite shoots with her for Missbehave and have been planning my next Brooke time since. I can't get enough of her work.
P.S. Fun facts-While she was on a cover shoot set in Los Angeles with Katy Perry, Katy saw Brooke and decided to have her hair cut (immediately, on set) into the "Brooke bob" as well. And jewelry designer Jules of Bijules created a necklace inspired by Brooke-you have to check THIS out!
