One part ethereal, one part intergalactic, the Black Magazine Issue 16 editorial is completely captivating. From colorful cloudy backdrops to simple black and white shots, the photoshoot is as artistic as it is stylish. In fact, the chromatic captures with the billowing backgrounds are reminiscent of Renaissance oil paintings.
The Black Magazine Issue 16 editorial was shot by photographer Darren McDonald. As mesmerizing as both the minimalist and cloudy photographs are, they are not as beautiful as model Emily Jean Bester. The brunette Australian beauty was styled by Paul Bui, who outfitted her in a loose, casual wardrobe filled with designs from such labels as Maison Martin Margiela, Isabel Marant and Dries Van Noten. The ensembles were complemented by luscious tresses by hairstylist Jenny Kim and understated makeup by Charlie Kielty.
