Darkly enchanting, the photo series titled The Lost Kingdom by Ekaterina Belinskaya, a photographer based in Moscow, Russia, follows a regal queen as her evil reign comes to a slow end. Whether she is her own undoing or not, the dark queen is first captured languishing outside only to end up in imprisonment, perhaps facing a sentence similar to Marie Antoinette. Granted, she looks more like a character from a fairytale.
Starring model Kate S, The Lost Kingdom by Ekaterina Belinskaya is full of cinematic shots and compelling narrative worthy of a blockbuster film. Nevertheless, as striking as the deserted scenes are, fashion designer Maria Daranova's Gothic clothing is what truly stands out. The breathtaking royal looks were complemented with voluminous updos and dramatic eyes by makeup artist and hairstylist Helen Kaddaha.
