Crystal Renn is Under the Twilight Sky for Vogue Japan

LOOKBOOKS contributor Kenberly Paul slips Under the Twilight Sky with Crystal Renn for Vogue Japan.

Decked in delicately jeweled and lace garments, Crystal Renn (Ford Models) stars in Vogue Japan‘s editorial “Under the Twilight Sky” from the June 2012 issue. Shot by Camilla Akrans, Renn tells a tale of romance and intrigue in looks from designers like Dolce and Gabanna, Hakaan, Balmain and Yves Saint Laurent styled by fashion editor Sissy Vian. Scarlet red lips against a natural face accented with strong brows by MUA Sil Bruinsma (Streeters) along with a retro hairstyle, reminiscent of Betty Paige, by stylist Alain Pichon (Streeters) are the perfect touches to each mystifying look.

Aline Weber Rocks Out with Her Couture Out in Vogue Japan

Just one look at Aline Weber in “The Girl Who Rocks the Planet” from the latest issue of Vogue Nippon and it’s immediately  evident who styled it. Living Bratz doll Anna Dello Russo has her kooky claw prints all over this editorial, shot by Giampaolo Sgura in arcades and on the streets of Tokyo. The lion heads, the Balmain, the Cavalli, the Versace, the statemenet eyewear and headgear — disco ball motorcycle helmet anyone? — it all speaks to Dello Russo’s fashion-is-fun/more-is-more aesthetic as well as her own personal style. I mean, I’ve feel like I’ve seen the lady herself in a number of these looks, or at least will in the near future. Take a saunter with Aline through the land that Hello Kitty built in “The Girl Who Rocks the Planet.”

How About Some Rainbow Hair To Go With That Versace?

Versace has been gaining momentum these past few months after first announcing a collaboration with H&M, and it doesn’t show signs of stopping. For the February 2012 issue of Vogue Nippon, models Lindsay Ellingson, Simon Nessman and Vika Falileeva are decked-out in the brand from head-to-toe with colorful hair to match by Oribe. Though not reaching the racy heights of our favorite vintage Versace ads, photographer Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele did a fine job with Keeping the Faith and giving us the attitude we can always expect from stepping into a full-on look from Donatella.

Hailey Clauson Gets Up Close & Personal for Vogue Japan

With lips ranging the color of rainbow, Hailey Clauson gives some serious face and “Candy Kisses” in the February 2012 issue of Vogue Japan. Photographed by Liz Collins, pink, orange and purple pouts by Sam Bryant evoke the slight warmth of spring, complementing the pastel wardrobe by stylist Jonathan Kaye. Messy colored locks by Tina Outen look as though dyed by a damp piece of children’s sidewalk chalk. Maybe I was onto something with my Barbie dolls. Gallery after the jump.
