The Lipstick Portraits

Noot Seear by Michael Angelo

I can’t even begin to describe this.   At best, I can say that this is fashion for a cause.  Here’s the description from the source I got it from: “Photographed for the sole cause to raise awareness of Cambodian adolescent girls who are sold into prostitution and forced to wear red lipstick, all subjects wear lipstick as well to symbolize a protest against these atrocities. Instead of being used as a sign of oppression, however, Michael’s subjects don the lipstick as a badge of beauty and freedom for a series titled, The Lipstick Portraits. For this particular set of images, model and actress Noot Seear poses for Michael’s lens in a series of dignified and albeit beautiful images.”  You can see the post in its entirety here.  It has all the details on how to help.
