Daphne Groeneveld is “Fantastic in Plastic” by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Japan, March 2016

Daphne Groeneveld is slippery when wet in “Fantastic in Plastic” by Giampaolo Sgura, Vogue Japan, March 2016. Daphne dares to go semi-bare in this exquisite editorial designed to delight. Anna Dello Russo invites the see-thru styling of Moschino to bring forth forward fashion. Clear Couture makes its way wrapped up in plastique designs that say… Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly. Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go Life is a barren field Frozen with snow, (Langston Hughes). A black string ties things up as we see skin through the back of a crystal, clear skirt. The body stands in sheets of translucency as each image projects a sense of salvation. A nose ring hangs from the face as Jessica Nedza lets bejeweled artistry dangle in defiance. Makeup is made to enhance the features, with application that doesn’t disturb the balance of beauty. Eyes pop with a penetrating stare, as the brow arch beguiles with a hair-raising glare. Nature takes is course as a glow of gorgeous swoops in over the skin. Giant lips jump out offering full, shiny mounds of pillowy wonder. Light reflects off the backdrop as each ethereal picture penetrates the page. Accouterments makes their way, from diamond encrusted spectacles to over-sized, clear accessories. Andrew Guida lets Daphne’s golden hair fall down her shoulders, signalling the bright lights of a new season. Bells in the town alight with spring, make clear the fresh and ancient sound they sing.
