Posted Jan 13, 2015
Holly Rose Emery & Samantha Gradoville speak the art of plastique in ‘Mask Layer’ by Donna Trope for Under the Influence, A/W #14. Trope breaks down the walls of propriety with powerful pictures that play with our mind. A brazen look at women’s obsession with perfection. The story sucks you in with the promise of pretty and knocks you out with a trough of truth. Makeup Artist, Georgina Graham, grabs on to the gorgeous as she dares to take it straight into the unknown. Primary colors capture our imagination, with pictures that tease us with the temptation to change. Masked in a layered mix of comedy and catastrophe, beauty bleeds, as the secrets of the skin are revealed. The nature of what is erotic is fluid, (Stylist) Masha Orlov falls into the future with avant-garde fashions to include silk, latex, leather & fur. Hairstylist, Tracylee, mixes it up with a coiffed blend of wild wigs and naturally done-up dews. A trail of red tears lead the way with eye-popping artistry that ends the day. Take a ride into the dark caverns of your creativity with (what looks like) red blood streaming down the face.
