La Perla

La perla translating to “the treasure” in Spanish is a mysterious, dark, yet sexy story. Who is this woman? What is she up to? One may ask themselves when looking through these images. To keep the audience guessing I stuck with black as the main wardrobe color since it’s typically associated with the unknown, seriousness, and power. However, you have to be careful when using all black clothing because the looks can sometimes go stale and lose the readers interest. Therefore, I styled the model in clothing and accessories that had texture and alluded to seduction including leather gloves, belts, lace, and silk. I also required the model to not wear a bra so her natural curves would gently mold into the garment. | Photographer: Kevin Alexander | Model: Sophia Crawford | Hair: Stephan Lauren | MUA: Ryan Neil
