Tao Okamoto

Each season we are told about at least 10 new it-girls, supposedly new muses, girls with similar names, similar faces and similar expressiveless expressions. It is not often one of these "new faces" is actually surprising and inspiring. This season, it was the japanese Tao Okamoto that got my attention: I love her versatile face, her smile, her 60's-inspired bowl cut and the fact that she looks a bit geeky. She has worked for I-D and Dazed (of course), but also for the likes of Glamour and Teen Vogue. A true star on the rise.


Thanks for your lovely comments.
