Crista Cober becomes part of the art in ‘La Palmeraie’ by Txema Yeste for Numéro Magazine N°165, August 2015. Poetry mimics the magic of allure as we find ourselves lost in a labyrinth of couture. Nature erupts with costumes that combine the freedom of outdoor space with the decadence of high end designs. Cober is camouflaged in divine fashions as she passes time in a palm tree grove. Stylist, Elizabeth Sulcer, explores daring looks from Chanel, Gucci, Just Cavalli, Michael Kors, Norma Kamali, Saint Laurent for Hedi Slimane & Tom Ford. Each shot switches it up with fabrics that go from the fire of fur to the lure of leather. Black brings the heat with wild accessories that melt in the savage sun. By embracing indigenous flavors native rituals take the form of modern makeup. Beauty blends into the backdrop, as Tyron Machhausen creates a human collage by using the body as a canvas. This story captures the craft of forward cosmetics through the act of modern minimalism. Eyes elicit strength through the ferocity of sun-kissed spirit. As features speak, soliciting surfaces to rise up and expose us to the realness of raw power. Hairstylist, Tomi Kono, lets water of life wash through the dew as dreams drip down to define the truth. A huge head-piece extends its outreach illustrating that hope is held in the grip of the mind’s space. Sensuality rides over the skin like cool water seeking new ground.
