Women can be anything.
“This editorial follows the story of how a woman can be anything she wants. When I found out Nunu was the muse for this, I thought “what a beautiful Barbie” and as a stylist, I tapped into my inner child and wanted to “play dress up”. She could be this cool Kasi flavour soccer player but a Barbie version.
Jesse wanted to focus on specific textures and light and really capture Nunu’s journey through life as we show her different personalities, just like Barbie. I played with lots of textures and pops of greens and blues. The brown coat look is quite a powerful moment as this embodies Nunu’s strength. I loved being able to play with all textures and deconstructed garments.
I wanted Nunu to feel sexy, strong, confident but also fun. I wanted to remind everyone how fun and beautiful it is to be a woman, who can indeed, be anything they want.” – Whitney Rhodes
