Model Johanna Jonsson contemplatively poses in front of Mikael Schulz lens in the Costume Norway 'American Beauty' cover shoot. The Swedish photographer, who is based in New York and Sweden, has created serene scenes in a quiet, loft-like room as well as a typical studio setting. Capturing the "American beauty," who happens to be a Swedish beauty, in typical American attire, Schulz showcases the stylish side of this dominating culture.
Styled by fashion editor Hege Aurelie Badendyck for the magazine's April 2012 issue, the Costume Norway American Beauty editorial features the designs of such labels as Calvin Klein, Opening Ceremony and Louis Vuitton. Beauty artist Viktoria Sörensdotter completes the looks with messy locks and glam makeup.
