Part of the appeal of Western-style fashion is surely the sense of adventure we inherently tie to it. The things you can do with the weight of some sturdy cowboy boots on your feet instead of a less-practical pair of heels, the mix of unstoppable toughness and irresistible beauty. That’s what Aurora Sansone’s styling is romancing in this shoot for Vogue Japan, with model Kate King dressed in lace dresses, layers of turquoise jewellery, and a mandatory pair of dusty Western boots.
Kate’s hair by Michael Long and makeup by Dawn Broussard complete her look. Photographed by Tommy Ton, who’s usually known for his street style efforts, you can view the full shoot above.
