editorialesque » juliana imai for numéro china
by Jeremy Danté
shot by john-paul pietrus, brazilian female model, juliana imai appears for the november, issue no. 3, of numéro china. styled in all black everything by tim lim, imai appears in leather through high contrast black & white. represented by ford models, you might recognize juliana from the FW09 baby phat campaign in which she appeared alongside lyndsey scott & kimora lee simmons. this past spring she booked the united colors of bennetton campaign alongside henry watkins & continues to steadily work at creating a presence in high end editorial. i love the feel of the spread, the blurred images & the photographic grain. while also possessing a certain quality of ethnic ambiguity, juliana serves & performs well.
