Natasha Maidoff. Directing Kelly De Martino for fashion runway shot in Venice alley, 1999–2001.

Description:
In this scene from The Orange Orange, I asked De Martino to look directly into the camera, and proclaim, "I always wanted to be the first female president of the United States." My intention is to address that desire for greatness which exists outside of what era we live in or what we wear, while also pointing out the destructive way that self-doubt undermines ambition.
