It’s 2012! And I’m happy to start the year with my work on International Supermodel Du Juan for the cover of Style magazine.
Sept 17. Du Juan, among many other celebrities, was in Singapore for the official opening of the 1st Louis Vuitton Maison Store in Southeast Asia and I think the first Island Maison in the world. And Style had the honour of photographing her for their cover and fashion spread the next day.
It was my first time doing meeting her and doing her face for the opening and she was so soft spoken and unpretentious. We discussed how the makeup should be and she was really a pro. She’s been there, done that and she knows she can carry off almost any style of makeup so she just wanted to look natural and kinda left it to me.
After makeup was done, she went to get ready for the soirée and the next time I saw her was at the party itself.
The following day at the shoot. She just oozed elegance from every pore of hers. Must be the 9 years of ballet training she had that she had such grace and poise. FYI, she became too tall for ballet and had to quit and ended up modelling.
So here are the pictures. Hope you like them…
