Tao Okamoto appears in the Beauty section of the June 2010 issue of Vogue Nippon in a story photographed by François Nars and styled by Patti Wilson. MDC reported this last week and ever since we’ve been shaking like rice paper waiting to get our hands on the actual issue — our news agent still has only the May issue. In lieu of the tear sheets we pointed our Firefox to the portfolio of François Nars at theCollectiveShift and found the story and lo, what a story! What shade of eyeshadow doesn’t look good on Tao? Crikey. Please visit theCollectiveShift to view the story in the portfolio of François Nars that also features Ford Models’ Daniel Liu in a supporting role.
