VOGUE JAPAN w/ Ophelie Guillermand 80s Pop Glam Beauty -
We shot this Vogue Japan beauty story, ‘A Modern Royalty’, in NYC with french model Ophelie Guillermand, a joy to work with. The direction was 80s pop glam, a fun concept and lots of colorful hair ornaments to play with.
I started from the idea of traditional Japanese hairstyles and added short bangs. I created different shapes and took different approaches to glam and pop culture, both melding them together and creating a tension between them — bringing out the pop and polishing it with glam and stirring up and letting loose the studied glam with pop.
