Canadian beauty, Janice Alida, is a style icon to watch both on and off the runway. She is a success story of Elite Model Management like other big name models like Uma Thurman, Gisele Bundchen, and Heidi Klum. Alida’s unique sense of fashion and stunningly distinctive look have given her the opportunity to become the face for Vogue Australia March 2014.

The photo shoot was shot by photographer Emma Summerton and was centered around the idea of street art. Alida played a key role in capturing the creative essence of the shoot. She served as a walking work of art and was surrounded by environments like graffiti-laden walls and cluttered workshops.

Jillian Davidson, Vogue Australia’s stylist, wanted to dress Alida in a dark and edgy mood that would complement the contrasting colors that stood in the background of the shoot. She styled Alida in pieces like embellished jackets and leather crop tops, as well as an over sized portrait print Prada dress. Davidson saw the selected clothing as well-suited for the creative and artistic vibe that she knew Summerton was hoping to draw out.

The darker style on Alida was not all that severe. Makeup artist Linda Jefferyes and hairstylist Sophie Roberts defined the model’s best features with bold colors, creating an overall trendy look that seamlessly tied together with the urban setting. Jefferyes accented Alida’s wild brows with vibrant lips in a rich, scarlet shade. Roberts styled Alida’s jet-black bob into a fun, spaced out hairdo that provided the ensemble’s last “wow-factor.”

This punk-meets-artsy look for the Vogue Australia March 2014 issue reminds us of a modern day Posh Spice. We can’t help but love how the stylists and photographer were able to marry two opposing worlds to form this amazing photo shoot.
