Stella Lucia goes “New Glam” by Jamie Morgan for Interview Germany, September 2017. Lilting like a beautiful creature from another planet, she stands against the backdrop, her silhouette screaming out in shadowed form. Altered pieces come together to form a mosaic of modernity in, “New Glam”. This haute idea is the new kind of couture, as gorgeous never looked so good with a vision of vertical that’s gone horizontal. There’s something riotous about mystic elements riding on the back of poetic instinct. Pureness emanates throughout the page, exploding out in a quiet-riot kind of rage. The art of Stella’s face is read in the placement of her features. Wide-set eyes are the result of an over-sized forehead, while her beautiful bones are composed in an upside/down triangle. Exuding a pattern that ends in a “V” like alien face shape. This compelling layout takes the best parts of fashion fusion and amps it up a notch. Anna Schiffel uses the concept of couture piling as a new form of fashion building. Opposing elements combine, showing us that opposites truly do attract. Unique styles come under the moniker of garments, with intense layering that does a body good. A dark jacket is ripped apart appearing as a corset covering a white, ruffled day-dress. Step Right Up… You’re Sure See… Sh** Kickin’ Boots Will Make You Feel Free. The fluid nature of this fashion illusion makes it look as if fabrics are multiplying, with distressed pieces that grow out of one another. Materials are torn in two exposing us to what’s below. A symphony of shapes take form, as unusual accessories are systematically borne.
To truly accentuate her stunning features, Anthony Preel allows her bones bare the weight. Her face gives off an otherworldly glow, so electric it’s as if it’s gonna blow. Her nude features project power, as the luminosity of her fare stare takes center stage. So intoxicating is her skin we forget we are viewing a human being. To look at Lucia’s lips is like exploring another country. You almost need a passport to visit. Mounds of deep scarlet take over the mouth, exuding in the form of passionate pillows. Working in concert, the hair and skin become one unit. I have never before seen elements of raw beauty come together so well. Tomohiro Ohashi creates hair that sits high on the forehead, made out of bangs that wrap under themselves, forming a kind of face frame. The look is hyper modern with an vintage twist. There is no model today that can give us such variety. Leave it to Stella to satiate our need to honor history, while still forging ahead. Topping things off, she wears a metal piece sewn into the hair, while it wraps around her in a headband format. The linear shapes of this silver shape are mimicked in a body jewelry draped over her shoulders. The look is both intense and artful, with accouterments that wear more like attachments of meaning making this story one of connection.
