Behind the Scenes

Ever wonder what it takes to put a photo shoot together? Today we take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the photo studio and reveal the astounding secrets within. We thank the models for bringing us these up-close and personal images from their Twitter and Instagram pages. Without them this post would not be possible.

The first photos was taken on August 29 and the appeared in print November 11. From that, we can conclude that there's about 10 weeks in Kohl's production schedule between the photoshoot and the printed ad.

Ginny: "Probably my fave outfit ever."
