In this smooth black and white series, Joanna Kustra photographs a graceful and poised Marianna (MandP Models) who is adorned by the elegant couture styling of Sharpay Tang. Mika Shimoda was responsible for Marianna's make up while the eclectic hair-dos the model wears are the work of the ever-versatile Kazuto Shimomura.

The monochromatic color scheme goes well with the minimalist outfits Marianna sports. The model strikes poses that range from demure to blase and nonchalant, keeping in sync with the toned-down feel of the series. Further enhancing this mood are the simple, light gray backgrounds. One is left to concentrate only on the model and the outfits she wears, which is certainly a welcome focus in any fashion shoot.

Kunstra has shot a c oherent, elegant series.
