The Jette Stolte 'Kiss My Act' is nothing short of stop-and-stare striking with its modernized 1920s flapper styles, bold color blocking and exquisite makeup. This painting-style editorial is high fashion if I've ever seen it. According to her website, the talented Stolte is influenced in her photographic work by her fine art background, something that is evident in each of the shots. Her aim is to showcase beautiful, confident and modern females and "play with the conventional idea that her subjects are only to be looked at."

The modern woman she photographs is almost confrontational in nature, staring straight in the lens as if she knows she belongs there and leaving no room for questions. The bold styles and make up serve to solidify this edgy and progressive forward thinking.
