The Vogue Japan August 2013 Issue is Inked and Old-school

Editorials have a way of conveying emotions and they elicit a certain feeling in each picture. This Vogue Japan August issue depicts an electrifying Marilyn Monroe-esque shoot.

In the editorial entitled ‘The Blonde who Stole the Night,’ model Daria Strokous plays the perfect old-school sultry siren. Covered in tattoos, Strokous poses in luxurious outfits with red lips and a devilish look on her face. The tattoos work in perfect contrast with the 50s vibe of the rest of the spread; ink wasn’t usually seen on women at that time.

This editorial is the perfect example of when a great model, photographer, theme and sense for styling come together. The combination of all of these things is able to transport you to another era. The Vogue Japan August issue really portrays an updated version of the 50s, and it looks amazing.
