“You Got Served” is a DXD Original Series where three individuals (bloggers, stylists and/or tastemakers) are picked to exemplify their own unique styles by sourcing and photographing a table setting using the same box of mystery props.
There’s a funny lady in town…and she actually knows a thing or two about wine. In fact, this past year after scoring herself a much deserved Editor’s Choice in the Saveur Blog Awards, she was then scooped up by Bon Appétit as their new wine editor…got a book deal…and has been dizzy from several high profile projects ever since. This fashion collaboration about sustainable wine might be my latest favorite.
I’m pretty sure this is what you call a boss…at least if you consider that someone with mega-hustle, supreme style…and wits, not to mention the uncanny ability to embrace transparency. A self-proclaimed leisure enthusiast, you might know her from her hysterical instagram (and snaps for that matter), her …or as the infamous creator of the head back, lips up wine approval stance known as “The Ross Test“.
Any way you chose to consume this gal…you know that Marissa is a major firecracker. A delightful burst of energy in an otherwise (could be) dull wine scene. She’s got us laughing, yet realizing sulfates are…okay!, while making us think about Rosé in celeb terms… and btw totally giving us permission to put ice in it.
In a word – she’s an unpredictable roller coaster ride that you’ll want to get in line for again and again. Wine included – obvi.You got served by Marissa A Ross… You Got Served: The Rules Subject must choose and work with at least two items and one textile from the mystery box~Location and surface area up to the discretion of the subject~One additional textile, prop, and food/botanicals can be selected from the subject’s private collection
Do you have a routine or game plan when it comes to styling with props for your photos?
If there’s anyone who can successfully combine moss, cocktail ice and an owl figurine to create a whimsical landscape for a delicious glass of rosé…well, I suppose Marissa is the one who can pull it off! She’s also quite the hostess – one who always seems eager to put on a killer record and pour you a chilled glass of wine that you’ve never had before. Divine!
Keep an eye out for Marissa’s first book due out on Plume next year as well as a wine tumbler collaboration with the fabulous enamel brand Crow Canyon that will be available for purchase soon on her website: Wine All The Time.
