Virgine Magazine

Paying Homage to American Icons

This is a fashion editorial I worked on for Virgine Magazine , entitled “American Icons.”  The story features several models – each one was transformed to recreate the iconic images of the past, like the two examples here that I worked on.   This feature was shot over several weeks and the photos are brilliant.  Everyone from The Beatles to Grace Jones and of course Marilyn Monroe and Brigette Bardot both pictured here with my makeup 😉  I love doing transformational makeup so this shoot was perfect!  One of my favorite shots that I worked on is of Marilyn.  Xo Mario

VIRGINE magazine

If you haven’t heard of or seen the new VIRGINE magazine, I recommend you pick up an issue from a newsstand or at least check out their site here.  VIRGINE is the new fashion magazine and I was so excited when they asked me to collaborate on the very first issue.  Check out the beauty shoot below that I worked on with Naty Chabanenko (Women Management), photographed by Bjorn Iooss.  Bjorn also shot the 2011 cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  

The story is titled In Utero, which means before birth.  I gave the model four different looks that were all shot in water.  Oh, and milk, LOL (see below).  Which image do you like best?  I think my favorite is the shot with the red lips.  Let me know what you think!  I will post images soon of the other editorial I worked on in the same issue.  Xo
