Since the last post was about minimalism, I figured that this portrait would be a perfect follow-up. It really is simplicity at its best. And yet, although this shot is bare of any extravaganza, all those delicate and powdery shades remind me of one of the most visually extravagant movies out there: Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. All sorts of pictures are bubbling up in my mind and all of them are exquisite: horse-drawn carriages and over-the-top perukes, embroidered silk slippers and opulent gowns. Amidst all of that, cheekbones heavy with rouge and hair lavishly dusted with powder.
