Baby was a black sheep: kicking that retro punk back to life

Recreating the renegade revolt of the punk rock age, photographer Sarah Fountain represents the rebel cause through this punk rocker rendition of fashion in its most unruly form. The styling in the shoot, as done by Kymberly Louise, focuses on leathers, furs, sequins and statement punk jewellery. The zipper additions and figure hugging material give this sexual look its edge, allowing that 70’s punk style to come through.

Make-up artist Gemma Elaine focuses on smokey eyes, bronzed skin and outlined lips – using that edgy style to give the model insolence and arrogance. These same notions are carried through into the hairstyle, done by Nadine Johns-Alcock. Johns-Alcock creates tomboy hair looks of half-up pompadours and fixed-forward mohawks.

Alexandrea De Goey Omundsen, the model in the shoot, is the sexually charged recalcitrant framework that the entire attitude centres around. The use of black and white, and the focal points of the photography all adding to something quite powerful and infinitely fun, as only the 70s punk rock can provide.
