Heat Wave in Elle Singapore June 2011 is a retro-modern editorial that channels the best of 70s and 80s disco fashion with a tribal edge. Model Tina J is absolutely captivating in each image; her flawless ebony skin, expressive face and mile-long legs set off each outfit beautifully.
Fashion editor Daphne Chen styled the shoot for photographer Joel Lim, opting for brightly hued pieces from Fendi, Gucci and Jil Sander. My favorite look is the printed blue one-shouldered bikini, which Chen paired with a vibrant turban, peach nails and peach stiletto sandals.
The hair in Heat Wave in Elle Singapore June 2011 was done by Kenneth Ong; it ranges from mohawks to short Afros and a closely cropped cut. Ginger Lynette was behind the editorial's makeup, opting for a brightly colored lip and relatively muted eye makeup.
