cover girl: amna ilyas for sonya battla

November 2, 2012

uh. how amazing is this shot?

the latest pakistani fashion editorials are absolutely j’amazing, and that is all down to a crop of young new talented photographers, stylists and makeup artists.  so glad the industry is moving away from the same ole and giving newer people a chance, because the results are spectacular.

the latest editorial to catch my eye is the sonya battla shoot for paper magazine featuring amna ilyas. the editorial was shot by none other than nadir feroz khan, with his uber talented wife maha burney taking care of the styling and my fave makeup and hair stylists natasha khalid and hina durrani respectively. seriously though – these 4 are the ultimate dream team. i have yet to see an editorial/campaign handled by them that has been anything less than faboosh.

amna was given a new age cleopatra look with a sleek, high ponytail, bronzed skin and exaggerated cat-eyes. a plain background and blue-tinted light gives the shots an intense and dramatic feel and plays up the jewel tones of sonya’s designs perfectly. love so much!
