Tian Yi is Geisha Glam for Elle Vietnam's May 2013 Cover Shoot

Memoirs of a Geisha – For its May 2013 cover story, Elle Vietnam gets inspired by the Japanese-influence of spring collections and Geisha beauty. Model Tian Yi evokes the theme perfectly in a series of images which juxtapose an urban backdrop with the ornate prints and sleek silhouettes of Prada, Dries van Noten, Dior, Thakoon and more selected by stylist Anna Katsanis. Photographer Oliver Stalmans captures the Chinese beauty in this elegant shoot.

    Anyone know who designed the blue jacket? The black patch looks like Lao or Thai script. Thakoon??

      It’s written Pucci on the jacket so it ought to be Emilio Pucci.

        Ha! Didn’t see that. Thanks. I just looked over the SS13 collection and recognized the jackets.

    She looks so grumpy…The styling/hair/makeup/everything else is so good though.

      I agree with you. She looks strange, but the styling and the clothes are beautiful and suit her. We’re not so used to Chinese beauty here in Europe.
