The title, Venus Rising, might well be likening Jessica Stam to the Goddess of love and beauty – and quite aptly if you consider Michael Pandos’ styling of metallic sequins, draping dresses, and exotic jewels. But it’s the accompanying video to Koray Birand’s shoot that turns Stam into a slinking noir vixen. It’s a short-but-sweet video of the model with no outfit changes, just smooth shots played out and then reversed, a carousel of Stam and the lush surrounds, brilliantly set to Gramatik’s trip-hop beats of Good Evening, Mr. Hitchcock.
Watch the video and view the shoot after the break.
The shoot is from Vogue Hellas’ June 2012 issue.
