Tao - Freja Inspired.

There is definitely a legit reason why everyone is kind of in a frenzy over this Vogue China August 2011 spread that is Freja-inspired.

The first image of Tao Okamoto is everything perfect about rawness and edge. I love the smouldering black eye make-up and completely tousled hair. The 90s grunge inspired ripped white racerback Calvin Klein tank seamlessly works with the entire image. Lately, I have been also looking for inspiration for a subtle tattoo, and I love the star one on the left side of Tao Okamoto's neck in this photoshoot, but do I dare? The juxtaposition of grunge with metallic-sequin pieces without-a-doubt works, such as the flawless image of Tao wearing the blue sequin Chanel jacket with the Ralph Lauren red checkered shirt and the grey tee from T by Alexander Wang. Seeing the heavy metallic eyeshadow worn by Anja Rubik (here), and now Tao Okamoto, I am tempted to experiment with this, but due to my lack of make-up technique, I suppose I should just leave it to the professionals. This shoot may have been "Freja inspired", but Tao Okamoto has now completely convinced me of her potential edgy-rockstar image.

I love the burgundy lipstick - do you think it'll come back? I feel like it was very in during the early 90's and has been dismissed as being too goth but maybe it's time for its comeback!

As for experimenting with metallic eyeshadows, I would try EyesLipsFace for their eye shadows. They're pretty metallic-y but they fade nicely so it's not too overwhelming. And it's only $1!
