Hat Tricks

Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello create a distorted world for Numero China. Tao Okamoto stars in the duo’s chapeau centric story, wearing in a series of outlandish looks by stylist Tim Lim; bold prints and strong colors by Missoni and Prada play a major part in the story as does a retro 70s vibe that adds to the off kilter feel.

    @rendell.. i know its really sad. 09-10 were the years of the “colored” girls on mdc’s top 50 no more jourdan, tao, lakshmi, and du juan, and arlenis, rose, shu pei, chanel and sessilee are slowly but surely sliding backwards. the only 2 that are moving in the opposite directions (and with rocket like speed i might add) are joan and liu.

    love tao’s editorial work!

    It’s not really about race. A lot of the S/S 10 stars are fading now, Keke Lindgard, Tao, Jacquelyn Jablonski, and even Alla Kostromicheva has slowed down.

    I LOVE Tao, and I’m so glad she got this editorial! Numero China is a fantastic magazine.

    Doesn’t she kind of look like Karlie Kloss in these photos? She looks whimsical.

    Tao is always so expressive in editorials. I would love to see her and Coco Rocha shoot an editorial together;)
