Stunning Beirut: She’s Got The Blues

I’m very proud to share with you the first part from L’Armoire De Lana’s first professional editorial. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a couple of months already! First, allow me to thank Mokhtar, one of the best photographers in town who has become a true friend. It was very difficult for us to find the right time to start off this project but here we are. Our idea is to conduct editorials every now and then, featuring very interesting and beautiful characters. We don’t want to shoot models, we want real people who naturally have very distinctive characters and natural traits. For this first photo-shoot, the location we picked is a very traditional house in Mar Mkhaeil, a true gem in the heart of Beirut.

We are extremely part to start this collaboration with the fabulous Zeina Makki, Lebanese actress and director. I’m sure all of you already know her for her leading role in Habbeit Loulou and now in Neswein. Two very beautiful movies that made us discover more about her. Thank you Zeina for being so sweet, thank you for accepting to go with our concept, with the bold styling.

Allow me now to share with you the first look from our photo-shoot. It features Zeina in a statement blue tulle skirt. Because it’s something I’ve never seen her wearing, I thought it would be a great idea to style her in a doll-like cut with the tightest corset. She’s definitely got the blues!

Special thanks to Beshr for the amazing makeup, we loved the dark smokey for a little gothic-chic hint. And to Piaff Boutique for letting us pick our favorite items for the styling!
