Natalie Westling & Yuan Bo Chao go post-apocalyptic skater punk by Craig McDean for Vogue Italia, July 2015. A revelation of exaltation, this story puts out a hypnotic hue with eclectic elements that aim to inspire. Frenetic energy pops off the page as each girl plays the game of hurry up and wait. Stylist, Olivier Rizzo, gets wrapped up in the hype with designs that dare to defy. The fusion of fashion has arrived with an avant-garde collection that emotes an aggressive aire. Geometry steals the show, from an over-the-top Ascot to a slit dresses that exposes shorts. Dark colors cast off leaving behind a bold blend of original body shapes. The beauty of neo-brows erupt as, (Makeup Artist) Val Garland creates vertical lines drawn in an even dimension. Tiny black sticks stand straight up as they stack evenly over the bone. Letting light eyes get lost in the mix, while lashes and a dark-line smudge down the lower lid. The lure of the lips let us in with a power pout that polarizes. As flavor floods the face inviting deep richness to rush over the mouth. Hairstylist, Anthony Turner, goes dirty-chic with slick strands made to look like they haven’t been washed in days. Red dye syncs up the shade with color that collects the senses. Behind the eyes lives a world of wonder waiting to become – as muses make their way inside.
