Past Fashions: TechnoSeptember 7, 2009
I think we can all agree that Amber Valletta is a golden goddess. For the Techno editorial in i-D October 2002, photographer Craig McDean brought out another side of her– badass and sharp, drawing attention to the almost-masculine strength of her features rather than focusing on her blonde beauty. The effect is so stylised as to be almost cartoony, in the best possible way– highly graphic, with the three-colour scheme forcing the editorial to the viewer’s attention. I love this image of her as a butt-kicking, leatherclad troublemaker.
