Vogue Japan Editor at Large Anna Dello Russo has made a move that now will be scrutinized by the fashion onlookers around the world now. In the behind-the-scenes video the stylist tapes Crystal Renn‘s eyes before applying makeup. Why? It didn’t make Crystal Renn look particularly Asian but, on the other hand it does have that connotation, at least from the side. People got offended but well is it the only reason to taping one’s eyes? Tape was used by actresses before facelifts emerged to give them a younger look or more feline eyes. So maybe it’s not what it looks like?
I think Crystal Renn is a great model and I do like some pieces from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2011/2012 collection that got a spread in Vogue Japan October 2011 issue. The spread looks great and Renn shows off some masculine and feminine outfits and looks amazing.
Anna Dello Russo said she loved Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2011/2012 collection and it shows. Renn dons tuxedos, star-printed shirts and bejeweled wear on the photo set all from the designers’ latest collection. Though the tuxedo pants do look comical on Crystal Renn‘s frame.
In the beauty story “Call Her Diva” Renn sports bright colorful frocks and no less colorful makeup with fierce winged eyeliner topped with varying electric colors. Her hair styled in a bouffant 60′s style and she wears bright chunky jewelry and fur.
