An Homage to Guy Bourdin


Beauty : An Homage to Guy Bourdin

The return of the Palmer Girl...

Perfectly burnt red cheek bones, velvet eyeshadows and soft, messy hair – it all comes together to create the master formula for Guy Bourdin’s mesmerizing photography and style. Known for the provocative, vibrant colors and iconic storytelling in his photographs, Bourdin not only changed the fashion world, but also created groundbreaking advertising campaigns for Chanel, Vogue, and Charles Jourdan. Below is work created in response to his inspirational legacy.
