Not too long ago, the ladies of M.I.S.S teamed up with Australian publication Hell Yeah to shoot a cover spread for the magazine’s May issue. Although for some May conjures up ideas of May poles and flowers brought on by April showers, the ladies of M.I.S.S and Hell Yeah looked beyond the spring season, instead pulling inspiration from key moments in culture and political history.
Styled by our very own Liz Baca, the Hell Yeah x M.I.S.S May issue cover spread was based on combining the rugged appeal of work wear with the vividness of pop art. Muses such as Rosie the Riveter and Roy Lichtenstein were constantly in mind as Amanda Lopez shot brands including Doc Martens, Hellz Bellz, and Dimepiece. Overalls, jumpsuits, and workbooks, the workwear side of the shoot, were complimented with pop culture themed tees and accessories in bright colors. Makeup artist Jenni Tay finished off the look with 1950s style puckered, red lips, while hairstylist Justina Downs pulled off pin curl hairstyles.
