  1. As always, Tao looks incredible!! I would have expected nothing less. You can’t help but love a girl who manages to make a swim bonnet look sexy.

  2. Tao is just incredible!
    I love how she can pull off so many looks from clothes to hair to make-up, etc.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

  3. Best work in the editorial she has done ever in her career!! Keep it up,good work! Love Love Love!!

  4. having followed tao’s career since the elite days i’m not surprised by her versatility as she had long hair then. and her book wasn’t as pared down as supreme had kept it with the bowl cut.

    these pics – prop styling, poses, man w/ camera, etc. are lifted off 70’s pics with antonio lopez and jerry hall. those had real energy. this set is plastic in a bad way.

  5. @Glunge; Wow, you really know your stuff. I search Antonio Lopez and Jerry Hall images and up pops the inspiration from this shoot. After seeing the original images I have to agree with your comment, it does lack the energy. However, I still LOVE this look for Toa. Given the hair, makeup and lighting I think the photographer was going for a more plastic look, and I think he shooting for a different type of energy.

  6. Glunge I’m equally impressed, had to google Lopez and Jerry Hall images and have to admit I prefer Lopez’s. I like Tao, but there’s something in this shoot that doesn’t work…

  7. tao is great model and there is no doubt about it. but i can’t really figure it out why does a japanese girl would have this kind of hair color. im not being racist ok? i bet there is an alternative asian model that can complement this kind of hair color. this would look better on south east asian girl with a wide eye and a tan skin.

  8. Hmm, could look better
