The stunning fashion spread 'La Donna D'Oro' by Jesse Koska is a tremendous achievement for the up and coming Nashville based photographer. The aspiring artist worked in collaboration with stylist Aria Cavaliere for his first exclusive fashion editorial for Ben Trovato.

Jesse states the concept of a gaudy Italian girl as his inspiration for the glimmering gold shoot. Starring model Rachel Ruff sports gold tinsel-like styles, studded figure-hugging dresses and a colorful comic-book inspired jacket. The gilded styling is suggestive and ultra-glamorous. Despite its ornate nature, this stunning shoot is more high-fashion than gaudy.

Rachel's barely there makeup by artist Emily Bartholomew complements her platinum blonde locks and adds a youthful touch to the model's party girl persona. This gold-infused editorial mixes a youthful fearlessness with undeniably ornate styling.
