A few accessories and an unusually creative hairstyle or three turn what might otherwise be a beautiful black and white series of semi-nudes into a beautiful black an white series of ultra-chic semi-nudes. Stylist Gilles Clarisse adds a perspex cross necklace dripping with chains, an ice-clear pendant choker, a pair of glamorous oversized Roberto Cavalli sunglasses. Michael Marenco creates hair that’s smooth and sleek in some shots and sculptured like a feat of modern art in others. And no colour photography is needed to know that Lila Gueant’s makeup artistry is shadowy and shimmery to the best effect.
In front of Kay Smith’s lens, models Anne Verhallen, Diane Rosa, Martyna Budna, Samara Fagan & Tamara Ermoshkina mix up the expressions and poses for a gorgeous, high impact photo series. Appearing in Bambi Magazine’s 14th issue (bambimagazine.com), you can check out the whole series at the gallery.
