Querelle Jansen is a ‘Lonesome Girl’ in Numéro #138 by Sophia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello
Posted Oct 26, 2012
Querelle Jansen soars as a small town girl with big city dreams in, ‘Lonesome Girl,’ for the November issue of Numéro #138. Capturing the subtle agony of the truly misplaced, Sophia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello tell the story of beauty seeking higher ground. Relegated to a life of repressed misery, the haunting echos of hollow footsteps ring out in an aimless pursuit of love and acceptance. Alienated and misunderstood, this is a picture of uniqueness & diversity shamed into seclusion. Difference ignorantly defined as dangerous, one is left expelled by the bosom of one’s home – a deeply felt cut even for those who race to escape. A poignant portrayal, Lonesome Girl represents anyone held down for who they are. This is a statement on the undeniable power of authenticity, and the strength it requires to honor your real self. Wearing a stunning combination of this season’s edgiest long gowns, these looks celebrate the spirit of freedom and independence. Source (visual optimism).
