Querelle Jansen is a 'Fashion Survivor' in Numéro Tokyo's June 2014 issue. Though many girls dream of couture gowns and glittering runways, this self-referential editorial seeks to show the uglier side of the industry. Jansen appears to have narrowly escaped the tyranny of superficiality for a life of sleeping under the stars. The only indication of her formerly flashy life is the torn-up remnants of her couture duds, which hang off her emaciated body.
The once-glamorous model has been transformed into a beach bum by hair stylist Dennis Gots, makeup artist Diego Sierralta and fashion editor Felipe Mendes.
Photographer Laurie Bartley captured Jansen's new vagabond lifestyle for the particularly meta editorial, which will most definitely make you think twice before you blindly worship fashion as your bad religion.
