Christophe de Menil

I shot this portrait of designer and art collector, Christophe de Menil for a jewelry series on Vogue.jp. Christophe, 78, designed the pieces above as part of a collection based on sea creatures. She told me that she is inspired by, " Real things that have scary aspects, things that are insanely wonderful". Check out more of Christophe de Menil's inventive designs at www.christophedemenil.com .

Yes, A beautiful woman NOT hiding behind sunglasses. I do not like dark glasses because the eyes are the windows of the soul and as we age I believe it is our soul that shines through to show our true beauty. Then the way we choose to be creative with style is the icing on top.

This lady is truly beautiful and her jewelry is amazing.
