Finally got my hand on the images for a shoot I did for VOLT magazine which is out now! The brief was a tongue-in-cheek homage to the fashion images of the 90s supermodels. My era! Instantly, photos of the runway queens like Linda, Naomi, Cindy, Kate, Stephanie, Carla, Helena & co popped into mind!
I grew up with these women branded into my memory. Lifted super arched brows, loads of contouring, nude colours, all melding into a heady, sexy and cheeky mix. Obviously we now have the benefits of high-tech makeup formulas that eliminates all the heaviness of cosmetics in the 90s. And bearing that in mind, I really wanted to create modern and sexy looks that still kept the cheekiness and frivolity of the 90s.
Below are the my 4 favourites of the shoot.
