Blondes Have More Fun

March 18th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (34)

Tao Okamoto is known for her oft imitated but never duplicated razor sharp bowl cut but Vogue China takes her in a completely different direction for her latest editorial. In the story by Camilla Akrans Tao sports long bleached blonde locks that make her look totally different than how we’re used to seeing her. Shay Ashual‘s hair wizardry transforms Tao’s look but do you like it? Let us know!

    Tao is normally very spritely and cute, but in this story she looks so ethereal and soft. Simply gorgeous.

  7. Joe says:

    i love these photographs! Camilla Akrans is incapable of taking a bad photo . That said , I don’t think Tao should make this hairstyle/haircolour permanent .

  8. Liv says:

    Beautiful story. Tao is a great model in an understated sort of way, a subtle poser. She deserves more recognition.

    Why is it that Asian models never get all that popular anyway? I mean with the “fans” or whatever. Even girls who are doing exceptionally well (Tao, Liu, etc) seem to have a much smaller following than their Caucasian counterparts. ๐Ÿ˜

  9. All about Models says:

    Tao wears the long – bloner hair well. She has something western in her look. She’s great

  29. Willy says:

    I can feel magdalena in the shot
    love tao:

  30. Raches says:

    I love Camilla’s work. Her photos evoke a very ethereal, light feel and she always manages to make the models look more beautiful than usual!

  31. marvoi says:

    suits her very well =] and yes, not for every other asian girl out there

  32. Tom says:

    The last shot evokes the Revlon Beauty, Jessica Alba. With long locks the girl stuns!

  33. Asian_beauty says:

    to Liv: i think it’s because of the perception of ‘beauty’ worldwide is still very western look oriented, especially in Asia, even the Asian top models who are considered by westerners as beautiful or hot are considered as ‘ugly’ in Aisa, most Asians are into the western looks – huge eyes & deep eyelid in particular, they absolutely adore big eyes over there, so….it’s a sad truth i’m afraid ๐Ÿ™

    anyway, Tao is my fav. Asian models after Dual Kim. liu wen is good too.
