Photographer Andy Long Hoang captures the 'Net a Dong' FTV Indochina editorial. The striking and surreal portrait opposes traditional style ideals and is featured in the Asian publication's February 2013 issue.
Model Ran stars in the editorial, taking on an ethereal form that mixes spiritual and artistic inspirations. Wardrobe stylists Tinashe Musara and Rima Chahine dress the model in photo-printed sweaters, fitted frocks and cut-out accents from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Maison Martin Margiela and Versace among a slew of other top labels.
With curled locks by hair stylist Bernardo Fernandez and exaggerated eye makeup by beauty artist Sophie Parrot, Ran is reminiscent of an ancient goddess as she poses in front of a hazy sky-like backdrop.
