LAUREN DUKOFF hatte für die HARPER’S BAZAAR die Schauspielerin CHRISSY METZ vor der Kamera. Fotos vom Mode Shooting hier bei GoSee, einen Blick hinter die Kulissen gibt es bei Harper's Bazaar : "I used to be Kate," admits Chrissy Metz, referring to her wounded but determined character on the break-out NBC family drama, This Is Us. There's a hint of relief in her voice when she adds, "but now, I'm so far removed from that." Sitting in a makeup chair at her BAZAAR.com photo shoot, Metz is early-morning vamping for her pin-up-inspired portraits. Every time the hairstylist brings over a hairpiece—a set of Betty Page bangs, a swirl of jet-black pin curls—Metz's cat-green eyes fire up; the middle child who loved to entertain her hard-working mom comes out to play. She giggles, pouting her lips duck-style for full goofball glamour. "God, I would've died for these bangs in high school," she says of a razor-straight fringe pinned to her natural hair. "The Florida humidity just ruined me."
