Dana Boulos photographed Wilhelmina's Ariel Beesley for this exclusive C-Heads editorial inspired by Harmony Korine's 1977 drama 'Gummo.'

The film follows the lives of residents of a Midwestern town recovering from a devastating Tornado. IMDB describes the plot of the film: "Lonely residents of a tornado-stricken Ohio town wander the deserted landscape trying to fulfill their boring, nihilistic lives."

Beesley perfectly channels Chloe Sevigny as Dot, a young woman who is raising her younger sister with her twin. The aesthetics of the editorial completely mirror the Vaudevillian style of the film. Boulos was assisted by stylist Kristy Barros, makeup artist Jenne Kristina and hair stylist Danny Rishoff. Together, the team created a look consisting of thrift store clothes, glossy lips and a 'Farrah' hair 'do.
