Vogue Italia

Emma Summerton brings “Beauty” back into focus in this vintage inspired cover-story for the November 2013 Vogue Italia Beauty Supplement Issue. Giving us her take on retro-modern beauty, Summerton captures a series of neo-classical shots done in 40’s filmic style. The diva returns. With over-the-top elegance that speaks to a time when fur was the status symbol of choice and lounging around in your finest fashions was a full time job, this story is a vision of vintage excellence. Taking inspiration from a variety of eras Patti Wilson ensembles a series of (unapologetically) extravagant styles, with looks that range from 40’s film star to Mad-Men chic. Remembering when glamour was all about projecting the illusion of perfection, Mathias Van Hooff puts his best “face(s)” forward with makeup marked by outta’ this world eyebrows arched to with an inch of their lives, and bold colored pouts painted with precision. And with an exquisite mix of modern updos artfully crafted by (hairstylist) Ashley Javier, models: Kaila Hart, Patrycja Gardygajlo, Madison Headrick, Tao Okamoto, Crista Cober, & Jasmine Tookes are definitely keeping the fantasy alive.
