Chloe Laslier Has Blossoming Cosmetics in Marie Claire Czech May 2011

This beauty shoot in Marie Claire Czech May 2011 features an array of floral makeup. Makeup artist Maria Nguyen created several flower-matched looks for the editorial, transforming model Chloe Laslier into a human lilac, rose and gerbera daisy.

Jeff Tse is the photographer behind the editorial, while Elizabeth Chang was behind Laslier's slicked-back hair. Since spring and summer are the seasons in which gardens burst into full bloom, it's no wonder that the Marie Claire May 2011 issue picked up on this phenomenon.

We've seen several other magazine editorials in recent seasons that capitalize on elements of the natural world. In this pictorial, Nguyen used flowers as her makeup muse; other photo shoots we've seen have used fashion to reinterpret birds, foliage and even the ocean.
