This editorial for the August 2013 issue of Numero Magazine turns supermodel Elisabeth Erm into Liza Minelli of the 1960s. Consisting of feathered ensembles and V-fringe pointed bangs, the photos try to re-enact a modern day version of the renowned musical film 'Cabaret'. Art director Samuel François does a great job bringing back the 60s broadway feel, even in non-theatrical settings.
The editorial's focal point is the model's hair and makeup. Elisabeth Erm is perfectly put together, from her high-risen blue eye shadow and fake beauty mark to her hair that looks too natural to be a wig. This look, paired with glitter, feathers and garters, immaculately depicts the look of a 60s cabaret performer. Photographers Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello makes sure to capture the most chic angles and poses of the modern day Liza.
