Injecting an element of grace and elegance into the skater aesthetic, the ‘Life is Short. Eat Dessert First’ shoot lensed by German photographer Lina Tesch from Hamburg is captivating.

Outfitted by stylist Nadja Brvar, model Darya of Modelwerk dons mainly pastel-colored ensembles of blouses, long skirts, backless dresses, embroidered tops, leopard prints and frilly dresses, along with a selection of accessories of earrings, necklaces and bracelets. The Lina Tesch shoot also juxtaposes masculinity and femininity, as viewers see Darya, who is in a dress, wearing a fierce-looking mask that is seemingly World Wresting Entertainment (WWE) inspired.

Primped by hairstylist and makeup artist Anne Henrichsen, Darya sports a seductive wavy hair, as well as a bun. Stats for Couture Skateboarding Shoots Trending: Older & Mild
