Khela’s childhood passion for film and beauty naturally pushed her to study art and drama
in her native California. Increasingly driven by her love of makeup, she began working for cosmetic companies where she strengthened her technique and product knowledge.

Soon after, while simultaneously pursuing her career as an actress, she was landing make up gigs working with the industry’s foremost directors and talent on commercials and music videos. After accompanying a major music celebrity as a makeup artist on a worldwide tour, she decided to move to New York to pursue her career in the fashion industry.
Khela served as first assistant to Frank B. and Romy Soleimani, and has worked regularly with top artists on couture, rtw, and men’s collections worldwide.

She has contributed to editorial shoots such as Another, Contributor, Dazed & Confused, Elle
Mexico, Elle Man France, GQ, GQ Style China, Glamour Style Book, Hunter, Interview, L'Officiel Mexico, Lula, Marie Claire France, Modern Weekly China, Numéro Homme, Open Lab, Self Service, The Wild and V magazines.

The photographers Khela has worked with so far are Philippe Jarrigeon, Zoé Ghertner, Kasper Kasprzyk, Camille Vivier, Cass Bird, Lea Columbo, Estelle Hanania, Laurent Humbert, Paul Jung, Stephane Sednaoui, Ezra Petronio, Joe Lai, Pascal Gambarte, Eric Nehr, Amit Israeli and Peter Lindbergh (for Eddie Redmayne).

In her work, she believes in combining meticulous attention to detail with an open and intuitive attitude. Having maintained strong ties with her beloved NYC, Khela’s move to Paris provides her with a new perspective and approach to beauty, fashion, film and photography.
