Though fashion icons like Coco Chanel were famous for extolling the virtues of “Less is more,”, sometimes there’s nothing more fun than just going all-out OTT with your accessories – a sentiment echoed in the new ‘Beauty & the Bling’ editorial for V Magazine’s summer issue. Photographed by Richard Burbridge, shots take inspiration from the statement looks found in Tokyo’s Harajuku area. Models Yumi Lambert, Xiao Wen and Sung Hee Kim appear dripping in layers of sparkling jewelry pieces, from rings by Dior to a unicorn tiara by Meadham Kirchhoff, which are set off by bold makeup looks by Chanel and MAC – as well as a sprinkling of stuck-on gems around the ear and face. To complete the fun, cartoony effect, apparel is suitably eye-grabbing, from monster pink fur coats to sporty tops in vivid primary tones. Our favorite piece? It just has to be that surreal body part cap, on show in tomato red.
