The final edit of Giuliano’s beautiful mirror editorial has arrived!
This story nods to Serge Lutens capturing the essence of mirrors and reflection. The model’s face is presented in small pieces from various angels, artistically portraying our inability to view ourselves objectively. No matter how we try to honestly evaluate our place in the world, we can never escape the confines of subjectivity.
Greetings earthlings. In case you didn’t get the memo, it’s 2011.
The future is here, and even though we’re not flying in cars or discovering four million year-old monoliths on the moon, we are taking some pretty cutting-edge photographs.
By we, I of course mean Giuliano, who shot an über-futuristic editorial last week. Featuring a sultry speed-trailed model fragmented by mirrored pieces and angular lines, the images mash up time and space into one stellar fashion adventure.
Yesterday, Giuliano shot a Spring beauty story for Harper’s Bazaar Asia.
Inspired by mirrors and the often-overlooked details their reflections expose, Giuliano and crew built a round mirrored contraption that presented multiple angles of the model’s face all in one image. Futuristic, fragmented, and a little twisted, the images came out beautifully.
To score model Emma’s sophisticated style, here’s a break down of the looks our glam team concocted. Make up artist Riku Campo created fresh off the runway faces using products by Armani Beauté, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Guerlain, Dior Skincare and Ole Henriksen Skincare. Manicurist Beth Fricke polished Emma’s nails with O.P.I. and hair stylist John Blaine smoothed her maine with Max Gel and Shine Spray by KMS California. Can you blame the girl for looking in the mirror?
