Our group decided to make our mood board inspired by dance and to incorporate all things bright, colorful, florally, and powerful. We decided to not choose one type of dance, rather several; or the evolution of dance. On the left we have the fun and bright "pop" dance, then the florally and romantic sophisticated "contemporary" dance, and finally the darkest and most sporty "hip hop" dance. The pop section is inspired by the youth and the lightest and most fun kind of dance. As we move on the more contemporary dance this brings out the elegance in the type of dance, and the last look is inspired by the inner tough chick that has a 90's edgy and wants to bring out the hip hop.
Starting with the ultra bright and crazy expressive "pop" dance. These looks include a ton of the brightest colors and also the most youthful pieces. Lot of layering and mixing of brights give the outfit and look an overall fresh feel. We want the hair and makeup to reflect that too using bright shadows and a bold lip to make everything really pop. The accessories will be of course fun and playful tying it all together. The setting for this shoot would be on set with a white background allowing all the colors to really pop! Some props that might be used would include colorful balloons and cotton candy to keep it fun and alive. The model I would choose for a shoot like this would be Taylor Swift, someone who is always colorful in her appearance and personality.
This look is inspired by the contemporary type of dance and brings an elegance to the look while still incorporating color. A long floral maxi dress is key to this look allowing it to really flow. Some bright accessories like these red boots and blu hat will give the look a pop while keep the hair and makeup somewhat natural to balance it all out. This shoot might be shot in a field with nature around. This will give the colors a chance to pop while still keeping that romantic feel. The model I would choose for this shoot would be someone like Taylor Hill because she has a look that is mature but not too old.
The final look is the darkest theme but still incorporates color. The hip hop portion will bring back the 90's fashion more than ever with bright eyes and dark liner. The grunge look will be threaded through this look as well. Some accessories will be a bright backpack like this yellow fringe one and the shoes will be another pop of color like the neon teal Nike's. Keeping it sporty choosing a cut-off top and black leather jacket will give the look the edge it needs. This shoot would take place in a street in NYC, where there is the real world all around. The toughness of NYC will feed off of the theme we are going for. A perfect model for this look would be someone like Cara Delevingne, someone with a naturally darker look and she is someone who is not afraid to move and use her body to captivate a look.
