Let’t play a silly game here:

There is a monkey who made herself king in the banana forest.

A monkey, who made herself king, and she is in the banana forest.

The king in the banana forest, she is a monkey.

The monkey who made herself king belongs to the banana forest.

In the banana forest, a monkey made herself king. It wasn’t made by someone else, but herself.

A banana tree made herself king, oh no! It is a monkey who made herself a king.

Who made herself king? Banana tree? or a monkey?

Not all monkeys in the world can made themselves kings in the banana forest.

There wasn’t any king in the banana forest. Then a monkey made herself king. Does it counts?

The monkey who made herself king does not wanna be called queen in the banana forest.

In fact, the monkey in the banana forest is the king. But she made herself king, without others acception.

For the monkey king in the banana forest, my dear little friends, what else you can still come up with?!

Inspiration

I swear I didn’t thought I was a monkey when I was shooting this editorial. I was deeply in love with the coat from STF, so I decided to have a editorial wearing it, even though I’ve been shooting a lot with items from STF, I couldn’t stop myself for this time. To be honest, I was imaging myself as a tropical princess or so on set, as the coat was gold. I wanted to show the “royalty” feel for the editorial.

But sometimes you have to admit that what came out is not exactly the same as what you expected, and accepted it too! So when I start looking and working on the picture editing when I came home. OMG, guess what?! I didn’t look like a princess at all! Instead, I looked like a monkey! Don’t you think so? Hiding in the banana trees, weird hands movements…and the makeup for this look was a little stronger than what I usually do, again it was because of my thought to create the royalty, princess look. However, the makeup (especially I somehow messed it up a little on set) made me completely became a monkey. Hey don’t laugh my friend! I was seriously upset for a while! I was supposed to be the princess!

So I was like: “All right, you gotta accept who you are”. But maybe for the reason that I was born in monkey year in the Chinese calendar, I do love monkeys. When I realized I was a monkey since born anyways, I became happy again. Ok, since I couldn’t be the beautiful princess with all the glamours, I am going to be a monkey who called herself the king in the banana forest, even if “she” was the only one thought so. You probably would get confused why would I said “king” instead of “queen”, not because of I didn’t know this in English (sometimes my English is bad), but I do think a king sounds better than the queen on me. I also don’t know why, maybe I don’t like the word as much.

Now let’s talk a little about the outfit. Don’t you wanna have a coat like that? It perfectly shines you out with the gold, but then the little prints on the coat is giving you some friendly and cute elements. I am sure you will look good on lots of you, or some might turn out to be the monkey just like me, but a lovely one right? 🙂

 

故事

让我们玩个傻傻的文字游戏:

香蕉树森林里有只自封为王的猴子。

一直猴子,自封为王,是香蕉树森林的。

一个国王在香蕉树森林里,她是一直猴子。

自封为王的猴子是属于香蕉树森林的。

在香蕉树森林里有一直猴子,封王了,是自己封的不是别人封的。

香蕉树自封为王了,不,是香蕉树森林的一直猴子。

世界上不是所有猴子都可以在香蕉树森林里封王。

香蕉树森林没有国王,猴子封王了,算不算国王?

自封为王的猴子,封的是王,不是女王。

事实上,香蕉树森林的猴子国王是自封的不是公认的。

关于香蕉树森林的美猴王,我亲爱的小朋友,你还可以想出别的什么表达?

 

服饰

外套: 两三事

珠宝: Vintage

灵感

我发誓在我拍摄的时候我没有想像自己是只猴子。我那是深深的爱上这件来自两三事的外套,所以我觉得用它来拍摄,尽管我已经穿过好多来自两三事的单品来拍摄了,我就是停不下来。老实说,因为这件外套是金色的,我想要把那种皇家的感觉拍出来,于是我想像自己是个热带公主。

但是有时候你不得不承认结果并不是你想像中的样子,更糟糕的是你还得接受它。我拍完回家看照片的时候,你猜怎样?我居然完全没有像一个公主,反而更像一直猴子 。你不觉得吗?藏在香蕉树后面,奇怪的手部动作…还有就是妆容。这个look的妆容我化得比平时浓一点,当然,是为了表达那种皇家的高贵对不对。可是你说怎样,我不知道为什么在拍摄的时候我把妆弄的乱七八糟的,于是我整个就真的变成一只猴子了。别笑!人家真的是伤心了好一段时间呢!

然后我想啊:“哎,你得接受你自己啊。”但是可能因为我是猴年出生的,我也很爱猴子啊。当我意识到我本来就是猴子的时候,我便释然了。好吧,既然我不能成为美丽动人的公主,那么让我成为一直自己成王的猴子吧,即使是自封的…

好吧,现在我们说说服饰。你不觉得你也很想拥有想这样一件外套吗?它的金色完美的让你闪亮登场,然而上面的小印花又给你添加了一些友好和可爱。我敢肯定你们很多穿上它绝对好看,或者会像我一样变成一直猴子,哈哈,至少是个可爱的猴子对吧。
