Amanda Wellsh in “Underground” by An Le for Vogue Portugal, January 2017
Posted Dec 26, 2016
Amanda Wellsh takes us on a train ride through the mind, in “Underground” shot by An Le for Vogue Portugal, 01/2017. The art of tomorrow is here today in this exquisite story set to space. Cutting-edge ideas create a visual masterpiece with shots that symbolize the spirit of unity. Imagery injects a sense of inspiration, making us believe we are seeing moving pictures. Future fashion has arrived as the past and future dare to collide. Brilliant blending mixes fabrics that marry the feel of textiles, with the patterns that project high design. Paulo Macedo defines sartorial detailing by keeping the style lines simple. Street looks fuel the flavor ~ bringing forth avant-garde embellishments. Clothed in creativity, garments give a sense of symmetry with subtle beauty that brings balance to this season.
Modern makeup isn’t about creating a mask, rather, it’s about what we can uncover. Features tell a story… as we say goodbye to the past we welcome in the future with colors that sing. Lost in a lull of two-tones, Mayia Alleaume celebrates the spectacle of the face by showing it falling into deep space. Providing a picture so dynamic we can only handle just one. Art demands that we take notice as all things expressed become part of the presentation. Blue shadow lifts the lids, encircling the entire eye with a sapphire surround and an azure center. Crystals hit the skin with symphonic sounds, echoing out, moving down the cheeks and over the nose. Ruby reverberates off the lips leaving behind a rich, exotic flavor. Covering the top with a florid flush, red rushes with a crimson crush.
Wellsh wields her wonder with skin shine that catches the high points. Tawny eyes are topped with a glowing surprise, as cinnamon lips tickle the senses. Throughout the story proper we are introduced to a new form of natural. A dreamy dose of mellow takes us to a neo-nude place, only to drop us into the primary pop. Nabil Harlow leaves her hair clean, except for the ends that look like they’ve been dipped in a blonde border. Amanda rides the underground expressing herself through embodiment of excess.
