In this series from Pretty Hurts, Petra Collins photographs six women as they prepare for their days.
Co-founder of the Art Production Fund Yvonne Force Villareal wakes up a little before 7 a.m. Her son, Cuatro, 11, typically gets her out of bed. “I have my coffee first, and then I start making breakfast, until about 7:30. Every once in a while I will make 1950s Pillsbury cinnamon buns for breakfast, but on other mornings we'll have more organic breakfasts,” she says. “I get my daughter dressed, get myself dressed, and then head out the door.”
She keeps morning grooming minimal and just makes sure she’s presentable for school drop-off. “My preferable hair look is ‘bedhead’ almost all the time. I might look sometimes like I spend a lot of time — I don't. I spend hardly any time getting ready. I get ready faster than anyone I know.”
