Guinevere Van Seenus shows a tougher side to beauty in this direct and simple beauty shot, taken from Vogue Nippon’s September 2001 editorial, which poses the question, ‘What Is Modern Beauty?’ in its title. Well based off of the rest of the shots in the story I would say it’s indefinable! This image was sourced from imcmagazine.com.

A straightforward beauty shot of Guinevere Van Seenus here. Everything is streamlined and to the point in Thompson’s clean beauty shot of the model, well aside from the curly flick of hair in the left hand upper corner, which adds a bit of much needed humour to the picture.

Here’s a colourful beauty shot which renders Guinevere Van Seenus into a lady of the sea. At least that’s what the shade of green hair  suggests to me when looking at this shot.

A beauty shot of Guinevere Van Seenus with a slight tribal influence to it. It’s a simpler photograph from Michael but one that takes you back to the images of the early 2000s nonetheless.

An eye-catching extreme beauty image here taken for an editorial entitled ‘Future Flash’ that Michael shot for Vogue Nippon’s May 2007 issue. I don’t have any information on the models or stylist (etc.), but I have to say that the whole story, like this bold, cutting-edge shot, is really compelling and memorable.

'What Is Modern Beauty?' is the question that the title of this Vogue Nippon September 2001 beauty editorial starring Guinevere Van Seenus begs to know the answer to. If I knew I would tell you, trust me. As I don't and know that even an attempt to answer the enquiry would take all night, I'll merely leave you with this close-up of Guinevere. I'm not a particular fan of many of the shots in the story but I do like the 21st century update on Renaissance beauty in this image. The subversive reference makes this image a memorable one.

With frizzy hair and vivid pink lips, Guinevere Van Seenus calls to mind a modern reinterpretation of a Pre-Raphaelite muse in this simple beauty shot.

There’s something about this photo that I find quite…arousing, LOL. I’m not sure why, perhaps it has to do with the fact that the model is removing her face-mask, the last piece of material that appears to cover her otherwise naked body. Extreme beauty shots always make your mind run a little bit wild though.

Here is one of Michael’s extreme beauty shots. A really fascinating close-up, that has the model, Bekah Jenkins, looking slightly alienesque with an oily complexion and wide-eyed stare.
