Daphne Groeneveld by Greg Kadel for Numéro #164, June/July 2015
Posted May 30, 2015
Daphne Groeneveld is a walking work of aesthetic art shot by Greg Kadel for Numéro #164, June/July 2015. Releasing a metamorphosis of pure magic, this story celebrates the odyssey of ecstasy that is photo-expressionism. Like a flower bursting off the bloom, exotic buds transform through the act of artistic mutation. Stylist, Charles Varenne, brings the power of haute pop to the page with designs made to defy. Interfacing the feel of the fabric with the fantasy of fashion, high art inspires. Mosaic beauty mixes things up as (Makeup Artist) Frank B uses skin as a canvas of creativity. Groeneveld’s complexion comes alive with stunning silhouettes in eye defining shapes. Bronze shadow bleeds over the brows voraciously veering up the forehead. As a yellow diamond puts its mark on the cheek with powder emanating off the face. Covered in chaos, a blush of vibrant color erupts as blue and red lips end in a crush. Raging in avant-garde excess, the mouth releases raw energy with neon camouflage covered in crystal. Hairstylist, Dennis Lanni, steps into another world where each picture offers a new piece of crafted coiffure. Modern millinery unfolds; from a diamond tiara/crown of straight-pins, to a hat made entirely of knitting needles. Kinetic op-art explodes, in kind, like poetry emanating off a painting. Melting into a melee of madness, to seek something real/rare we must first travel outside the lines.
