Lisa Fonssagrives

Lisa Fonssagrives was the wife of Irving Penn and a fashion model during the 1940's gracing the covers of Vogue . I will include images of Lisa , this will help with my research in pose and stance for my final images .

Julia is described within the book to have an athletic figure , to show this with in  my final images I will use a slim model. Although I want my model to have hips and a bust to be able to portray the sexual nature of Julia .

I like the grainy texture within this image and how the lighting is directly on Lisa's face, like a spotlight.  This is something that I would like to experiment with during my testing as parts of the book would need strong lighting especially when Julia is finally caught by the Thought Police.

This image shows  reference to the make up of the 40's and also the shape of the neckline on jackets . 
The image has been lit from above which has created a beautiful shade underneath the chin .

This is another image which shows make up designs , like in Penns images this shows a harsh contrast between black and white . The arch in the eyebrow is prominent in the image , it also reflects the arches in the hat . This make up in this image is intense contouring, I would like to use this within at least one of my images as this can show the harshness in a personality.

The arch in the eyebrow is also visible in this image and the eyeliner of the top lid of the lashes as Julia is describe to have dark lashes I will be adding a small line of liquid liner to the eyelid this will enhance the eye and remain in the theme of  1940's
