Darkly dreamy, the Vogue Japan 'The Scarlet Focus' beauty editorial focuses on looks that are at once ethereal and Gothic. Although the two descriptors appear to be contradicting, this photoshoot proves the opposite. Despite the inky black hair, dark plum lips and pale face, there is a fairy tale feel that can often be found in a Tim Burton film.
The Vogue Japan 'The Scarlet Focus' beauty editorial was shot by London- and New York-based photographer Jem Mitchell for the September 2012 issue of the magazine. It stars model Kinga Kajzak. She was styled by Jamie Surman, who expertly married elegance with edginess. The looks were perfected by make-up artist Petros Petrohilos and hairstylist Neil Moodie.
