Korean Actress, Photograher and Muse Donna Bae Covers Vogue Korea Alongside French Fashion Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere.
Doona Bae, a prolific South Korean actress finds herself on the September cover of Vogue Korea alongside designer Nicolas Ghesquiere. The starlet has had a prevalent presence in influential Korean films, whilst more recently gaining a presence as the star of Netflix’s sci-fi series, Sense8. Doona Bae initially was discovered as a model before transitioning to the silver screen. Her selectiveness and leniency towards independent or art-house films have quickly established her as a serious actress. As if her impressively versatile resume was not enough, Bae works as a published photographer when she is not filming.
Bae eventually possessed the status of Louis Vuitton ambassador, representing and supporting the brand almost exclusively at public appearances. Bae originally took the role of Louis Vuitton model in their global campaign titled “Series 4,” shot by photographer Juergen Teller. Her relationship with Louis Vuitton’s creative director, Nicolas Ghesquiere is that of the strong coupling of designer and muse. The actress emanates the attitude and allure of the French luxury fashion house. The relationship between Ghesquiere and Bae transcends to the September cover of Vogue Korea.
The September 2016 issue of Vogue Korea fronts Ghesquiere and Bae styled completely in Louis Vuitton. The couple, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier poses in Paris with a foggy shadow of the Eiffel tower in the background. The editorial was styled by Eunuyoung Sohn. The editorial spread features Louis Vuitton ambassador and muse, Doona Bae in a modern pictorial. An alternative Vogue Korea cover for the September issue features a solo shot of Bae herself in a gloomy, more industrial mood styled in Bordeaux tinted leather pants and a structured, navy blue military jacket.
Doona Bae ascending momentum shows no evidence of slowing down as her latest appearance in the film “Tunnel,” directed by Kim Sung Hoon, has surpassed 5 million admission ticket sales in just twelve days. Apart from her increased success as an actress, Bae continues to exemplify the ability to play multiple roles, especially that of designer muse.
