W Magazine IT GIRL LUNCHEON, NYC Sept 2015 Vella live illustrates at various events but it was W magazine who found Michelle on Instagram and first hired her to live illustrate at their IT GIRL LUNCHEON during NYFW. IT GIRLS Emily Ratajkowski, Caroline Vreeland, and Harley Newton loved their BIG EYE portraits. Even COACH's Creative Director, Stuart Vevers got in on the fun. W's Publisher Lucy Kriz liked it so much that she booked Vella for her W client events.

W Magazine CLUB W, NYC, October 2015

The clients of W magazine were lining up to have their portraits done by Michelle Vella. Having someone look at you for 10 minutes can be a little uncomfortable but Michelle has a way of making her subjects feel at ease.  Everyone was so excited with their portrait and all said that they see themselves. Such a great way to say thank you to your clients or employees. 

Here are a few of the 10 minute portraits.
