We decided to mirror the rosy cheeks and pale lips of the era, while putting a dark almost gothic feeling into the eye makeup and the hair. I loved working with Adele and Jo Millen because they were so intent on recreating classic poses and images associated with Renaissance and Classical era art.
Half way through the shoot we even found a gorgeous second model - Jo's kitty! Adele somehow managed to tame her long enough to get some beautiful shots with her. Absolutely precious little thing <3
