The photo series starring newcomer model Kelly Rihanna by Peter Coulson takes on a modern Geisha theme. The role is a great introduction to the modelling industry for Rihanna because of its inherently demure, respectful and sometimes shy demeanors that are often portrayed in this line of work. Rihanna can use her modesty and self-consciousness to her advantage in this photo shoot.
This photo shoot of Kelly Rihanna by Peter Coulson was styled by Annette Sanfilippo. Sanfilippo draped Rihanna in stunning oriental fashion, showing its wearability in Western society. It is much more skin-baring than traditional Geisha wear, that's for sure. With hair and makeup by Annette Sanfilippo and Joanna Blair respectfully, Rihanna is able to truly embrace this theme.
Although oriental-inspired style was huge a couple of years ago, it may just make a comeback.
