The New Look – The March edition of Elle China marks a relaunch of the publication with the magazine going semi-monthly, giving double the number of issues and fashion. With its new look, Elle enlists the talent of designer Jean Paul Gaultier and Chinese top models Shu Pei and Kiki Kang. Gaultier styled the two girls with his own creations as well as other designers’ pieces. In front of Mark Pillai’s lens, the girls look like retro pin-ups with a rock and roll twist in the form of tattoo sleeves and bold makeup.
