Dark & Lovely

July 25th, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (17)

With her long black hair and piercing blue eyes, Kinga Rajzak has become the go-to girl for editorials in need of an eerie touch, but just because she’s everyone’s favorite ultra-cool beauty doesn’t mean she can’t deliver classic elegance when called for. Jem Mitchell‘s dynamic beauty shots for Vogue Japan are dark and brooding, but they’re also a sophisticated showcase for the timeless appeal of a berry lip, or smoky eye created by Petros Petrohilos. Chic styling by Jamie Surman, enhances the story, with gothic pieces from Ann Demeulemeester and lacy Dolce & Gabbana setting the sartoriali mood. Hair genius Neil Moodie ads the final bit of polish, crafting elegantly undone styles for Kinga, that mesh with the woodsy setting and folkloric feel.

    Holler. That’s what I saw too. Same eyes and overall vibes!

  3. Alejandra says:

    Woah, don’t insult Kinga like that.

  4. Robert Mason-McGraw says:

    Yes! Omg I thought that too, Coco is the best :)

    Wonderful presence! Touching images! Strong emanation! Sounds like a fantastic dream, something poetic, romantic and revolutionary! Deeply beautiful and magic. But what are the words ? Then: unspeakable as the language of the angels.

  7. a Wildcat says:

    Glad to see that the industry accepts such an unconventional beauty. She’s not really pretty or even exotic, you could even call her plain. But there’s something there…

  8. GP says:

    Yes, I see Coco too

  9. charlotte says:

    I don’t think I’ll ever get over Kinga.. she really gives it.

  10. Fashgurl says:

    Kinga is one of the strongest editorial beauties out there … maybe do a little research …. google?

  11. kennedy says:

    I love this, but I feel like the fourth shot should be the cover!

  12. Jessica says:

    Absolute perfection.

    Despite I’m in love with Kinga much more that with Coco Rocha, i’m pretty tired to see her used as gothic role model.

  14. eg says:

    i love this girl…lots of depth here

    Beautiful, full of character, but her eyes seem darker to me than blue!

    Maybe this is not the place to ask this but I wouldn’t know where else, then here among experts. I know a model trying to set a foot in Milan and she got the interest from 6 agencies so far. Could somebody tell me which would be most recommended among these?
    Beatrice, Boom, Flash, Urban, Das Model and M.P. Model Management. Thank you for giving me some hints!

  16. KEVIN CHAU says:

    OMG I just had to second all their opinion about Coco things. Even Coco is my bias, but still Kinga nailed these shots!

  17. Christopher Yong says:

    Vogue Nippon has one of the BEST directions for their BEAUTY!!! Good styling but I can never take my eyes off their perfect grasp in both editorial & beauty make-up!
