antoinette

 birth

 restlessness

overindulgence

remorse

cleansing

ennui

i styled this photo shoot of my friend back when i was living in milan. we wanted to do something that was a mix of fashion and fantasy and we wanted the photos themselves to tell a story. and so antoinette was born. emerged from a painting into a new world stuck halfway between the real and the not-so-much. 

the model is my friend Giorgia and i did the photography and retouching.

  2. I would love to see an origin story for "Athena," and more sets of her journey in the modern world. As for Antoinette, the first image killed it for me. Spooky and sexy. Oui.

  9. This just screams kristy elena to me! I love your creative mind and the direction you bring to a shoot. Each shot captures an emotion and creates a story. You are a genius on both sides of the lens. This shoot reminds me of when we first became friends while you were living in Milan. I'm so glad you're posting over here at Vogue Gone Rogue again. I guess I'm a sentimentalist ha! xo
