Lena Kholkina lensed 'Cheap Thrills' for the Ones2Watch. The editorial featured concepts of classical adornment with modern embellishments. The use of tinsel and reflective confetti creates a sort of tension and sense of rebellion. Model, Olga Druzhina has an intense glare, with haunting blue eyes and heavy brows. Her extreme innocence is darkened by the motif of the evidently fake adornments. In one shot she is marked with a third eye, suggesting naivety and suspicion.

The series was shot and styles by Lena Kholkina. The young artist is based in Moscow, Russia. She works with an international clientele, having her favorite names send their articles to her. She in turn shoots them, and sends them back with the end result. Stats for Tinsel-Adorned Editorials Trending: Older & Warm
