Auguste Abeliunaite succumbs to ‘Salvation’ mountain by Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello for Numéro China, August 2014. Leonard Knight shares his supreme vision with the world, in this decadent oasis of desert dreams. An expression of passionate fashion, Auguste loses herself to the power of this peaceful mountain. Stylist, Samuel Francois, creates a camouflage effect with dizzying looks from Chanel, Céline, Diane von Furstenburg, Dior, Falke, Gareth Pugh, Louis Vuitton, Prada & Valentino. Beauty becomes her as (Makeup Artist) Rie Omoto captures the colors of creation, as they morph from the side of mountain to the palette of her skin. As paints streams down her face we are swept up by the spirit of this man’s heart. Hairstylist, Romina Manenti, lets each picture tell a story with flowers gently blooming off the crown of the head. Making our way from the Salton Sea, Salvation Mountain reminds us that “Love is the Answer.”
