Entitled "Rococo", this opulent editorial for Marie Claire China pays homage to the era's infamous icon Marie Antoinette. Model Ali Stephens channels the glamorous icon in a washed out portrait set that is inspired by the 18th-century art movement of the same name.

The "Rococo" Marie Claire China beauty story by photographer Amber Gray graces the Asian publication's January issue. While hairstylist Yoichi Tomizawa gives the model a range of sculptural up-do looks, makeup artist David Tibolla recreates Marie Antoinette's signature and over-the-top cosmetic looks.

Tibolla highlights paled out face powder applications that are paired with bold pink lips, technicolored eyeshadow looks and doll-like blush hues that are a punk-rock inspired take on Rococo opulence. Moreover, stylist Yana Kamps opts for a lace and crystal-clad wardrobe that complements a series of dramatic beauty looks.
