Possessing a distinct grace and the right kind of attitude, Yana Shmaylova was the perfect girl to have played dress-ups for Igor Oussenko, embracing the classic uniform of heavy metal down to the very core of the heavy tattoos. Envisioned by Gosha Kartsev, the styling of the photo shoot juxtaposed a series of signature metal elements with a hint of the classic and far more sophisticated apparel. The unusual, contrasting concepts collided while giving place to a series of ravishing looks fit for a fearless superstar.
If the upper body is screaming metal loud and clear, making use of black baggy t-shirts emblazoned with a selection of specific prints, the other half seems ready to grace the most fabulous party. Elegant, feminine and sculptural, the elongated silhouettes are responsible for breaking the metal spell, alongside the refined choice of jewelry and the soft, loose curls created by Anastasia Grozina.
Make-up artist Kate Kudrina put a strong emphasis on the lips and nails in order to achieve that polished translation of the grunge look, complementing the antagonistic portrait with two remarkable features.
