Rising Star; Bo Don.
by Alice Byrne
In this editorial shoot for the June issue of Gravure Magazine, Alex Freund shoots gorgeous up-and-coming Dutch model, Bo Don. She appears demure, effortlessly beautiful and very sultry in these captivating and intimate black and white portraits. Superbly dressed by Tekla Knaust, Bo looks completely at ease in the simple and chic outfits and unique accessories.
Alex Freund does a perfect job of complimenting Bo’s natural beauty with his photography techniques, and creates sensuality and emotion that can so often missing from glossy magazine editorials. At only 19 years old, Bo has walked for some of the biggest names in the business, including Prada, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Chloe. She is also no stranger to extravagant magazine editorials, having been featured in British and Dazed and Confused.
Bo appears vulnerable and alluring. She does a wonderful job of making her plain black outfits shine and make the light work for her; it appears she is very much in control of the shoot. I will be very surprised if this Dutch superstar isn’t featured in countless major ad campaigns in the near future.
