In the light of one of the most enigmatic murder mysteries in American history Fenia Labropoulou creates a fashion shoot in line with the graceful and feminine fashion of the 1940’s. There is something slightly harrowing about the tale of Elizabeth Short, from the mystery surrounding her disappearance to the mystery surrounding her death’s motives. Labropoulou and stylist, Katerina Gouma, create a classical and seamlessly…
One of the most striking things about Fenia Labropoulou’s (lafenia.com) latest shoot is the hair. It’s a concoction of perhaps two parts modern and one part waved flapper bob, a kind of vintage glamour injection for the modern-day girl.

There’s nothing minimal about the way model Oleshya has been styled in Fenia Labropoulou’s latest shoot. In fact, every piece is intricate and avant garde, each outfit well matched by George Valvis’ hair and makeup.

Anastasia Pavlova’s boy-cut hairstyle gives me visions of Carey Lowell, as Bond Girl Pam Bouvier, slinking around the casino tables in 1989’s License To Kill. It’s the kind of hair that works for a particular face but more so for a particular figure type: tall and slender and athletic, boyish but oozing femininity.
