The Marie Claire Italia 'Gypsy Queen' editorial features the purple-haired beauty Bambi Northwood-Blyth. The Australian icon has been central to spreads with the newly released CR Fashion Book, Rika Magazine and Self Service, attracting buyers and fashion enthusiasts to her unusual appearance.
Photographer Jacques Olivar chose a run down trailer park as the most favorable site for Gypsy Queen. This pairing of haute style with a grungy if not despondent backdrop speaks to Olivar's impeccable artistic direction skills, and to Marie Claire Italia's will to push the envelope.
Northwood-Blyth remains clad in sparkles and metallic fabrics throughout the snapshots. Stylist Elisabetta Massari is responsible for these gaudy, upscale looks, furthering the disjuncture between the trailer park and Gypsy Queen's couture spirit.
