In an over gossified world, Vivienne Mok leaves freckles and birthmarks untouched. There’s only soft, hazy light that looks like it might have filtered in from the 1970s to break the harsh realism of existence; only wicker chairs and lace curtains to separate a dream world from the real one. And yet with those readily accessible tools her dream world is as fortified and as immutable as any imagination allows it to be. Mok’s light-filled, dreamy worlds are easy to enter – but you never want to leave.
In her latest shoot for Fashionising.com, Mok captures the natural beauty of model Tessa in simple hairstyles and minimal makeup. Instilled with the quality Mok manages to always find – a quality found at the intersection of innocence and sensuality, a quality with no English word to singularly define it – it’s yet another example of her shining auteurship in which styling, beauty, art direction and photography all come from her hand.
