There’s two sides to every story and Barnaby Roper explores the realm in this medieval fantasy creation for the latest original MDX editorial. Lou Schoof is a modern-day Joan of Arc as she plays both angelic empress and brutish warrior in her quest to take her deserved throne. Rightfully outfitted in diaphanous slips, throned crowns, and suited armor selected by Keegan Singh, the resolute beauty stands unbowed, unbent, and unbroken in this three-dimensional mastery of Gothic thematics. With hair stylist Cecilia Romero and makeup artist Ayami Nishimura conceiving ethereal beauty looks that cover her flux of power, this fierce queen is perfectly ready to enter the game. Winter is coming, indeed.
