The style in this shoot echo’s a sort of modern tribalism, with a kaleidoscope of colour coming through in both the clothing and the make-up. In fact it is this juxtaposition done by stylist, Mayuri Sarof, and make-up artist, Ralph Daniels that sets the style and fashionable theme for this shoot. Hints of tribal patterns etched across Kumar’s forehead, the edgings of blue eyeliner and the extension on the eyelashes build and create the focus on the beautiful and piercing nature of the eyes. Sarof uses a range of colours, styles, materials and accessories in this shoot, not moving shy of what could be perceived as modern or as folk-like or even child-like. The collection is complete and the impact is clear.
