Vogue Paris Gave Their 22-Year-Old Cover Star Wrinkles
Enjoyed Jemma Kidd‘s eyeliner advice this week but looking for a little less cat-eye and a little more crow’s feet? Vogue Paris has the answer!
Dior‘s resident makeup guru Yadim made up 22-year-old model Karmen Pedaru for the June/July 2012 swimwear supplement, smearing her eyes (and cheeks and temples) with a coal gray shadow. Lest you think this is your run-of-the-mill smoky eye, however, he also strategically flecks the shadow to create the illusion of the very wrinkles that the magazine no doubt advises the reader to forestall elsewhere in its pages.
No step-by-step tutorial for this look, Vogue? We feel cheated.
This isn’t the magazine’s first foray into aging the young and beautiful, however. In the November 2008 issue they used post-production techniques to depict then-21-year-old model Eniko Mihalik at ages 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60.
Pedaru’s cover is part of a larger spread titled “La Sauvage” (“The Wild”) photographed by Hans Feurer and styled by Geraldine Saglio, who kits out the model in that Robinson-Crusoe-in-a-$400-bikini look that fashion magazines are so fond of come summertime.
