Mica Arganaraz & Rianne van Rompaey fall into a fantaisie in “Mykonos” by Mario Testino for Vogue Paris, November 2015. A feast for the imagination, Arganaraz and Rompaey gorge on Greek in the delicious islands of Mykonos. A party like no other, to participate in this kind of celebration one must be willing to let themselves go. Set amongst a dynamic cast of characters, this invites us to imagine a world where all is fluid. Settling under the sun, to revel in the concept of creativity is to find yourself a flower bursting to bloom. Editor-in-Chief, Emmanuelle Alt, inaugurates this a holiday of high fashion fun, with looks that scream to be seen. Peacock blue-silk grazes the ground in a glorious gesture, while pink sweeps across the floor in swell of chiffon. An American flag flows over the pants with fabric that’s worn in patriotic flair. Fibers are all fired up in a fury of fantasy, boldly blending feathers, leather, fur and lace. Choosing to play the faces down, Lucia Pica makes the decision not to compete with makeup perfection. Mica’s extraordinary skin tone creates a beautiful take on just-bitten lips, while black liner gives her wide winged eyes. Naked beauty bares itself out with a face that’s kissed with a hint of freckles. Natural never looked so enticing with features that wear their nudeness well. From clean to extreme, this shows both sides well, with party pictures that prove things have just gotten started. Hairstylist, James Pecis, keeps things real with dueling dews that couldn’t be more different. Locks of blond bare down the back as a cacophony of ebony curls are stacked to attack, from short to long and dark to light the art of hair drips with delight. Fitting right in, the girls step into this fabulous affair without missing a beat. And, while these dancers may be in stilettos and bejeweled body-wear, the concept of creativity stays the same. We feel the beat stirring outta control, taking over our minds and moving our soul.
