A Different Side of Reality Star Karlie Redd of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta

Lydia Pierre and Desirable Magazine catches up with Karlie Redd for a never before seen side of the Reality Star of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.


Karlie Redd has been labeled a Reality Vixen for quite some time and as any Google Image Search will show you, it is not far from the truth.  Karlie is known for her temptress style photos and vixen image. However, Desirable Magazine had the chance to see another side of Ms. Karlie Redd.  Being that Desirable Mag is a High Fashion Luxury Magazine, everything was done in an effort to stay true to that brand promise. So when it was known that Ms. Redd was going to be our next possible cover model, we made sure that everyone on board did their homework.  Everyone on the team (seen below) from the Photographers, to Makeup, to hair and ESPECIALLY Wardrobe were told to study and research everything Karlie Redd and do the exact opposite. The result…a Fabulous Shoot in which Ms. Redd showed us that High Fashion definitely looks good on her.

She tackled each and every pose like a pro and the camera loved her. She gave us Sass, Class and there was no need to show….well, you know.  With such amazing work, who knows, maybe Ms. Redd may consider a career in High Fashion Modeling.  What do you think?  CLICK HERE to see some behind the scenes images and you be the judge.

Stay Tuned for the Release of the Issue with Karlie Redd’s Full Spread.

“I had a wonderful time working with Lydia Pierre for the Desirable Magazine feature of Love and Hip Hop own Karlie Redd. Lydia was professional as well as down to earth and greeting me as I came in. Working on this shoot was exhilarating and fun. We were able to get the model Karlie Redd to do a fashion shoot and get her to wear beautiful threads, crafted by the designer. Karlie Redd showed us a new side of her with being able to pull of the designs of fashion. While interacting with one another everyone was on the same sheet of music, with help making this photoshoot perfect. Everyone was down to earth and I enjoyed my time working with wonderful inspiring people. I would like to thank Lydia Pierre and Desirable Magazine for the opportunity to work with great people in the fashion industry.”
