This is the same performance that sent the single up the American charts when performed last month on the American Music Awards and we have no doubt it will do the same for the German charts.

Beauty is the New Fashion By Tomoyuki Yonezu

Make-up becomes video art in a short by Tomoyuki Yonezu and Tiffany Godoy.

Baby blues are framed in indigo eyeliner and lips go two-tone as models of the moment are painted with this season’s pop palate in a kaleidoscopic short for Japanese fashion magazine The Reality Show.

Editor-in-Chief Tiffany Godoy and Art Director Tomoyuki Yonezu co-created the film and enlisted some of the industry’s most sought-after makeup artists to reinterpret fall/winter 12 runway trends, resulting in some major maquillage including a goth-tinged look on model Ewelina Kruszewska, courtesy of beauty world favorite Dick Page. “The way I am thinking about the makeup is that it is not just eyes or cheeks on a face—unless your lips are going out on the town by themselves, everything has to work together,” explains the British creative, who works regularly with Mario Sorrenti, Juergen Teller and Inez & Vinoodh on editorials for the likes of W, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.

Shot with a high-definition Red EPIC camera by photographer Koichiro Doi, the “motion photographs” will run as still images in the The Reality Show’s fourth issue, which hits newsstands in mid-December. “Today we are inundated with fashion images and we see so many of the same clothes all the time, so it seems that makeup is where we can really express individuality and uniqueness,” explains Godoy of the film’s title. “We can change it easily every day without spending a lot, yet we still get to work with the types of brands that give us a sense of glamor, luxury and chic.”

Andrej Pejic Channels Warhol and the Factory Girls

Looking perfectly "Factory", Itsnotyouitsme favorite model Andrej Pejic gives great face becoming Andy Warhol's favorite muses for Nars Cosmetics Warhol line.

What fashion magazine hasn’t done some sort of Warhol-inspired shoot? We don’t know. So when recently-launched Du Jour took on the task of an editorial inspired by Nars’s new Andy Warhol collection, they really had no choice but to do something special. And they delivered.

For one, they tapped the lovely Andrej Pejic to embody Warhol superstars Edie Sedgwick, Nico, Candy Darling, and Warhol himself (which actually isn’t the most orginal idea. Chris Benz’s spring 2012 collection, for which he cast Pejic in the look book, was inspired by fellow gender-bending blonde Candy Darling.)

To further legitimize the story, they also got former Factory regular and Interview music critic Glenn O’brien to pen the introduction.

Our favorite part: What O’brien thinks Warhol would have said about Pejic, had they met:

Andy would have taken one look at Andrej and said, “What a beauty? Isn’t he a real beauty. Gee, you should be on the cover of Interview. We should make a movie. Would you like to be in a movie? I think you’d be so great.”

Perfect. For further evidence of Pejic’s uncanny ability to embody any figure, or gender, click through for the full spread and head over to Du Jour for more.
