Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive was a defining film of 2011. Count Ryan Gosling’s silent, nameless character as one of the factors that made it so; a character who walks the line between bad and good, who aims to set things right but does so via a downwards spiral of violent bursts. Count also the pumping synthesised soundtrack and, importantly, the cinematography. The glow of neon lights, the homage to the visual style of the ’80s.
It was inspired, but it also inspires. A shoot like this one, photographed by Edina Csoboth and styled by David Nyiri, leaves little doubt as to its cinematic hero. Titled Nightcall in line with Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx’s mood-setting music track, it’s a shoot that transfers women’s fashion to Drive’s neon Hollywood.
Model Hedi is Driver’s female counterpart in this shoot, with hair by Zsanett Fabian and makeup by Timea Hadnagy. You can view the full shoot at the gallery above.
