Viola Rolando's Photography Explodes with Personality

Photographer Viola Rolando advised Leila, from D@The Lab models, to throw her extensive modeling education out the window and simply "be herself" in this exclusive editorial for C-Heads.

This advice can seem pretty daunting -- I mean, what is the "self" anyway? -- but Leila definitely rose to the occasion, looking enviably comfortable in her own skin. The raw, candid images are also a testament to how at ease Rolando must have made her feel. The true freedom of expression in these photos cannot be faked or replicated -- Leila was genuinely having fun, and it's infectious!

Whether she was rocking a floral bodysuit from Wasteland LA, a Groupies Vintage tee or a Marvel Mask (provided by the shoot's stylist), Leila knows how to let her distinctive personality shine through. Stats for Playful Personality-Driven Editorials Trending: Older & Popular
