This AORTA editorial evokes memories of the part in Cinderella when her friend mice help dress her before she begins her chores. The model is surrounded by oversized objects that are typically quite small, including a string of pearls, compact mirrors and marbles. The dusty, slightly decrepit surroundings are also reminiscent of the servant quarters where the mice stay, or perhaps Thumbelina's betrothed Mr. Mole. The intricate props and structured outfits imply neglected grandeur.
The Playspace AORTA editorial features dress-up playing model Amber Le Bon with majestic styling by Kari Hirvonen. With impeccable makeup and hair by Jo Frost and Marcia Lee, respectively, the elaborate looks add to the forgotten princess motif. The spread can be seen in the 25th issue of Schon Magazine.
