Styling and photography of Anna by Daura Lee
Redheads clearly aren’t getting enough hype. I decided to dedicate this shot to them by accentuating the qualities that make them unique, such as the extreme highlights in their tousled hair and their fair yet oil-free skin which give off a soft and healthy glow. I’ve always been jealous of redheads in the same way that I was jealous of left-handed people. You can call them witches and burn them at the stake, or simply favour the fact that they are a rare and therefore special kind!
Color and texture are two main criteria for a look when it comes to fashion. I was loving the texture of this linen blazer and sheer top, and decided to dominate the shot with amber orange and hints of aqua, some of my favourite tones at the moment. In order to accentuate Anna’s hair, I attempted a seamless color transition from her hair to her eye makeup, all the way down to the detail on her sleeveless sheer top.
What interests me in fashion is the surrealism as opposed to the practical and mundane. I think this would be a great everyday look for Anna, but it’s not how Anna would feel comfortable dressing to work. She just graduated from civil engineering. Match it up with a mustard hardhat and white stilettos on site, Anna? I think not.
It was so much fun styling and shooting Anna. I can’t wait to do more shoots with other friends. If you’ve enjoyed this entry, stay tuned for more of my photography by liking us on facebook or subscribing to the blog via bloglovin’.
