French Revue de Modes os greeting spring not with one bright and beautiful cover but twelve. Swide's own backstage crush Tao Okamoto is one of those rainbow beauties.
A classic Japanese beauty with a Sicilian accent; Tao Okamoto in a corset from Dolce & Gabbana's S/S 10 collection. Shot by Thierry Le Goues.
While Tao had been on the Swide radar for a while we really fell in love all over again backstage this past fashion week: lovely and quiet with a book in hand, adorable and available when prompted to answer silly interview questions... And that skin! Miles of fair perfection without a single pore in sight. We're positively smitten!
The brains behind the beauty: Tao also writes and keeps a blog she updates on a regular basis. should you be fortunate enough to read Japanese - of if you just want to look at the pretty photos: http//ameblo.jp/okamoto-tao!
