Dasha Zharova discovers the art of discretion in ‘Don’t Tell Motel’ by Nikolay Biryukov for the November 2013 issue of Stolnick Magazine. Deviating from the traditional fetish laced liaison fantasies, leave it to the brilliant Biryukov to deliver a provocative piece with depth. Exercising her don’t ask don’t tell right to a little afternoon-delight, Zharova deals with the emotional consequences of carrying on a clandestine love-affair. A tantalizing tale of a tryst gone bad, by taking a more candid approach the images have a uniquely voyeuristic quality, giving the secretive side of this story serious edge. Using the contrasting elements of set & style Kieran Partise creates a compelling character by building a series of high end ensembles intermixed with enticing moments of lingerie and lace. And by bringing in beauty that borders on a little housewives gone mad, the bourgeois bouffant by (Hairstylist) Ernesto Montenovo and 60’s inspired smokey eyes by (Makeup Artist) Marina Keri, reads retro-modern fabulous.
