Marcelina Sowa for Harpers Bazaar Mexico

In this crazy desert heat (115F/46C today)

you want to live your life in white.

Crisp, cool, summer white.

Harpers Bazaar Mexico took a trip to Vietnam

for their July 2012 issue

to an exotic local with a pseudo desert feel, called Mui Ne.

Photographer Kevin Sinclair captured images of model

Marcelina Sowa at the “Fairy Stream

in a series of whites, styled by Andrew Holden.

Fashions from Alexander McQueen, Etro, Louis Vuitton, Giambattista Valli,

Hermes, Chanel, Kenzo and Moschino amongst others,

transpose a simple white theme to an otherwordly white magic,

made more ethereal by the stick straight hair Dennis Fei created,

and a brow-less, at times demonic looking 

completely fabulous makeup

by Nam Vo.

Shakes things up a bit don’t you think?
