There are a few elements that – collectively – make this shoot of model Marine a powerful and visually stunning one. There’s the hair and makeup by Chisato Arai, with looks that highlight first a blushing cheek, then a dramatic smudge of kohl, and finally a darkly romantic burgundy lip. Then there’s the styling by Marianne Malafosse that dresses Marine in clouds of black tulle or veils of white netting, the few hints of clothing never doing anything to take away from the shoot’s crowning glory: the incredible, theatrical, beautiful headpieces.
In black roses or a black veil, she’s a woman of Victorian mourning; in feathers she’s the black swan or the Firebird of the ballet stage, and in crowns bursting with blossoming flowers she’s an Ancient Goddess to pay tribute to. Between the moody emotion Marine brings to the shoot, the fantastical styling and beauty looks, and Milos’ (www.milosimage.com) softly beautiful portraits, it’s a shoot worth viewing in full.
