She set herself apart from the very early stages of her modeling career, owning a strong look that some even dared define as eerie, but even they meant it as the best compliment possible. Kelly Mittendorf’s enigmatic beauty is what keeps the fashion industry in an awe. Unwrapping the mystery surrounding her name, photographer Michael Donovan captured Kelly’s sexier side for Umno Magazine.
Playful, teasing, exuding a dark kind of allurement, the narrative fashion editorial took an extra step in unveiling Kelly Mittendorf’s biography. Accompanied by suggestive captions, going from black and white imagery to one painted in the most vivid colors, Donovan’s signature storytelling never felt more transparent.
With the accent falling on her wild spirit and the nature of the editorial focused on revealing her inner-most thoughts, Kelly Mittendorf went from mirroring the sexy vamp, to embodying the classy chic, switching in between sleek Costume National suits and exuberant corsets signed by The Blonds.
