There’s often a lot of frou-frou and frills to be expected from any Ellen von Unwerth shoot, though always in a playful and downright sensual way. It’s none the less refreshing to see an Unwerth shoot that capitalises on her ability to make over-the-top costumery work in a powerful way, but one that channels it into something stronger and sharper.
This shoot for Shon Magazine makes perfect use of Crystal Renn’s new platinum blonde look. It’s a mix of sporty fashion and fetish fashion, Olympic Games and Hunger Games. The concept here is that Renn is the Champion, and her ability to kick some butt is conveyed not just through her triumphant poses but through Brett Bailey’s warrior-like styling.
From Shon’s 17th issue, you can view the full shoot of Crystal Renn by Ellen Von Unwerth at the gallery above.
