Guinevere Van Seenus in ‘PĀINTED LADY’ Yelena Yemchuck, The Sunday Times Style UK, March 2015
Posted Mar 03, 2015
Guinevere Van Seenus is face forward in the ‘PĀINTED LADY’ a stunning Spring Fashion Special by Yelena Yemchuck shot for The Sunday Times Style. A celebration of the incomparable Makeup Artist, Isamaya Ffrench, this story shares the gifts of this young woman. With chroma cast across the skin, artistry is inspired by the graphic illustration of Japanese Posters. The features of the face are all but erased as they transform into something new. Guinevere closes her eyes to see the future, as the character of the clown is captured in poetic harmony. By mixing screaming black & beaming yellow, the beauty of barbed wire is explored. Circular numbers replicate the iWatch in this vibrant ode to technology. These playful pics might appear surrealistic, but they veer more to the side of symbolism. The hue of sky blue is covered in hard-boiled eggs with writing that says, ‘Free Range.’ Lucy Ewing follows the face with quirky fashions that speak. From graphic garb to solid chic these clothes aren’t just for show. High end style erupts with a red kimono silk dress by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent, a vest by Bottega Veneta, tulle by Ryan Lo, vintage by Rokit & a bow-jumper by Brownsfashion. From a head of swirls to a barrage of barrettes, (Hairstylist) Peter Gray tops things off with coiffed looks that exude character. Mind blowing makeup erupts as the phenom of Ffrench creates a walking work of modern art. Read; Edwina Ings-Chambers accompanying article.
