A short story about the lone cowgirl, epitomising the quintessential rebellious fashion and attitude that comes with solitude. Photographer Dalton Louis gathers inspiration from the classic punk appearance, and combines this with the red and white-checkered button up shirt, and typical cowboy hat that you would use to define the prototypical cowgirl.
Loius’ punk inspiration comes from the MET Gala punk theme that took place in September. Stylist Ivanna Goldenberg recognizses that the return to punk has begun to incorporate a variety of subcultures and substyles, as we see in this lean towards farm-style western fashion. However, the core roots of the punk theme still stick along the lines of rebellion… the need to create controversy.
Hair and make-up, done by Laura Vignola, continues the punk theme with messily braided hair, however she brings that element of innocence to the shoot with lightly lined eyes and simply giving the lips mild accentuation, even allowing the freckles of the skin to come through.
