Painted Ladies

August 10th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (31)

Makeup artist Kabuki transforms Naty Chabanenko and Ranya Mordanova into femme fatales for Vogue Italia; bright eyeshadow, dark lips and loads of temporary ink turns the fresh faced duo into sultry barflies who look more than a little moody. Emma Summerton creates the world of blue-tinted darkness, but Kabuki adds a touch of the surreal with his creative use of cosmetics.

    I’m gonna pull a Steven Slater here and speak my mind; it feels dead and uninspired.

    absolutely stunning, VI’s casting for eds is always adventurous and impeccable

    Love this! Ranya is cute, but Naty looks like she could kick some real fashion arse here. She looks like a cross between Daria Werbowy and Linda Evangelista. Lovely!

    I thought that Ranya in the small pic was Chanel, I should have known better, 🙁 Does anyone think that Naty looks a little like Lily Donaldson in the first shot.

    Go Ranya, Go Ranya, go go! Your my fav since Sasha P!

    Love it! I’ve missed Ranya..Guessing she’ll be lucrative this Fall/Winter – S/S show season. Naty’s cover face is out of this world. Mas Jolie!

    This kind of explains why Ranya is still on the top 50, though she should still be gone.

  14. Thomas says:

    I desperately hope this translates into Ranya being used more often again. I really love her look, her face is just beautiful. Crossing my fingers!

  15. jake says:

    i also thought ranya looked asian here. i really like ranyas shots other than the cover, which i prefer naty in.

    Naty Chabanenko is SOOOOO underrated! Her facial structure is to die for, give that girl more work!

    Emma Summerton can do NO WRONG.

  25. Bored says:

    I know artists borrow idea’s from other artists for inspiration. However, didn’t Steven Meisel already do this?
