editorialesque » freja beha erichsen for vogue japan beauty

through the lens of alasdair mclellan, freja beha erichsen appears for the june issue of vogue japan, for the publication’s beauty supplement. styled by george cortina, the spread focuses on fashion pieces that  serve well in a beach setting. through make-up done by jeanine lobell, the spread focuses on more subdued elements of cosmetics as freja is seen with a soft pink lip & bronzed shadow. laurent philippon allowed the greater feel of ocean side chic as freja appropriately sports the wet look. overall, the spread is a good addition to freja’s portfolio. much like the post previous, freja is of the new school as well & represents high fashion’s obsession with the androgynous. represented by IMG & as a known favorite of karl lagerfeld, freja steadily remains on top in the fashion game. freja has also cast to appear for chanel’s FW12 campaign, which will debut soon.

editorialesque » zhao lei for vogue hommes japan beauty

zhao lei, represented by wilhelmina models, appears for the spring issue of vogue hommes japan through the lens of ben weller. with hair by tomo jida & styling by shun watanabe, the ‘smooth operator’ themed spread focuses on masculine beauty in the form of flawless skin. one aspect i heavily scrutinize when reviewing beauty shots is the quality of retouching; it’s no secret that high fashion editorial is retouched among many other things that we, as the public, are attracted to. whether you’re zooming in to see pores or if you’re trying to decifer whether or not the make-up ends here & begins there- one things for sure, the concept of men’s beauty will never be as vastly explored as it has been for women. i admire the seen here & applaud the opportunity taken to create a male’s perspective on beauty. good set of images, bold backdrops & yes photoshop.
