The Glass Magazine A Thing of Beauty is a Joy For Ever editorial provides a modern twist on classic ball gowns. While the dresses are opulent in several regards, seen in the ruffles, cuts and gilded fabric, stylist Lucienne Leung-Davies has found ways to update them here.
Models Du Juan and Tian Yi sport long multi-colored pant suits and tweed overcoats in A Thing of Beauty is a Joy For Ever. These pieces are in this way quite different from standard gala wear as they break the prototypical mold that is often characterized by monochromatic floor length dresses. Photographer Stockton Johnston brought these elements together nicely with a simply deep navy backdrop and a basic brown chair, the only embellishments that were needed.
