Valery Kaufman in ‘An Enchanting Vision’ by Sølve Sundsbø for Vogue Italia, March 2015
Posted Mar 19, 2015
Valery Kaufman settles into a supreme state of being in ‘An Enchanting Vision’ by Sølve Sundsbø for Vogue Italia. Victorian goes Geisha in this hyper modern blend of neo-traditional era jumping. Secrets lay just under the surface in this exquisite look into another world. Decked in Valentino Haute Couture, fashion flows with exquisite materials including tulle embroidery, Chantilly lace & empire linen. Stylist, Patti Wilson, takes us to a novel time with looks that include; silk velvet with winged sleeves, and a long cloak done in double wool. See through chiffon flies free as we find ourselves lost in a fantasy of riches. Like a fairy-tale, this story is swept up in the beauty of a time gone by, while embracing what’s to come. Powdered skin rushes in as (Makeup Artist) Val Garland captures the angelic essence of ethereal wonder. With a deep rusty lip & soft sweeping eye, the bleach out brows frame the face with an aching allure. Hairstylist, Eugene Souleiman, creates a coiffured headpiece that balances atop like a chapeau of strangeness. Faux blonde hair is icy and avant-garde providing defiant color that blends in with nature. An amalgamation of eras, the past and future collide, in this orchestra of the extreme.
