Looking for a refreshing patch of fashion shade to keep those shiny sequins away from the dripping summer sweat? Jeneil Williams is a Dark Glamazon in a German fashion magazine (Madame Germany, July 2014), let’s all take a moment to dip into the ‘Hot Glam’ pictorial!
Photographed by Txema Yeste, styled by Frank Benhamou with hair by Jordi Fontanals and Make-up by Violette, the Hot Glam images of Jeneil are at a fresh crossroad between cliché fashion magazines pictorials, underground style publications, art and commercial appeal.
High contrasts, leather, body glove outfits trying to overcome the heatwave with more than just a swimsuit: with style. Every now and then, off-mainstream fashion magazine are well worth going through. And not necessarily for the ‘alternative’ style perspective, but because fashion editors try harder. Innovate more. Because they haven’t already reached the ‘Elle’ or ‘Vogue’ legendary status. And so they experiment, push boundaries, try to get noticed, try to stay ahead.
Jamaican born Jeneil helps a great deal in this case. The story, however, much like many other published stories worldwide, was first seen in Numero magazine, at the very beginning of 2014. The pictorial was just as anti-season then as it is now, with its exotic Tenerife landscape and a couple of more glam shots which were not published in the German magazines – the golden dress against the dark rock is definitely a feast for the fashion eyes (and more).
