Pernille Moeller in VOGUE Brazil by Benjamin Kanarek, Mongolian Fashion Influences

Pernille Moeller Vogue Brazil Beleza by Benjamin Kanarek

In the Steppes of Ulan Bator

At the crossroads of Manchuria and Siberia, in the grassy fields of Mongolia, in the “Khavriin Khavsraga” the wind chill of spring reddens the faces of the nomadic shepherds living in their yurts. Rosy cheekbones and noses, the look of lips cracked from the cold. A powdery foundation from the dusty steppes, wild-flower nails, folk hats, head pieces, rustic jewellery and magnificent colourful tops. Here we are, with Pernille, in Genghis Khan’s Kingdom, in the Steppes of Ulan Bator… Out in the June Issue of VOGUE Brazil 2010.

    These pictures (Pernille in Oulan Bator ) are just amazing especially for somebody like me who knows just nothing about fashion world !!Bravo again !!! manick et jean louis

  • @: Gary.

    Indeed, it was a very long day of shooting with pre-production sessions before 😉 (direction, research, casting…. )

  • Benjamin, this was a great shoot and I loved the video. I know the set was the same throughout and the basic feel was consistent. What I wonder though, is how long did the shoot take, how long was each change/adjustment to wardrobe and make up? It looks to me like you shot this all in one day but it looks like a very long days work.

  • WOW!!!Stunning! Loved the video..great peek behind the scenes! 😉

    Really good work Benj,

    My dream is to someday shoot with you with a professional team like that!
    But I guess I luckey to have the chans to meet with you and have a cup of coffee with you when ever I come to Paris ;-D

    Your the KING – stunning work!


  • Your art makes a stunningly simple, yet cataclysmic shift. I’m continually blown away by your courage, vision, color, clarity, subject, reality, fantasy…

    I’ll be curious to see the reaction. It should stir up noise from all sides – the best possible thing!!

  • Fantastic, everything works perfectly, photography, lighting, model, hair, make-up set design, everything, well done.

  • Beautitul.
