| I love the dark styling of this forlorn mermaid. Pearls, rockweed, a Balenciaga sweater and a heavy and forbidding Alexander McQueen dress. Her brow-less bloodshot eyes are set perfectly in sockets sculpted with a touch of cool grey. I've never seen the application of red to the eye quite like this. It's awesome! Everything about her has a warning quality, a nocturnal animal out at midday.
"If you cannot make the prince fall so much in love with you that his every thought concerns only you, then, the first morning after he has married another, your heart will break and you will become foam on the ocean...
Reminds me of these photos of Sasha Pivovarova by Higashi Ishida in Madame Figaro, Setember 2004:

Young Kate Bush made her television debut in 1978 on a Dutch TV special produced by the Efteling theme park in the Netherlands. (Efteling had recently opened their haunted castle Spookslot and wanted to show off the park's new attraction). Kate is such a clever and sincere artist. I think she is pure magic.
