‘BOSSED UP’ Models As Bad Ass Female Musicians

When we fare welled our beloved Natalia, we all knew there were great things to come…Lucky for us, those ‘great things’ are here and it’s well and truly obvious that her creativity is unstoppable.
We’ve kicked off  with a 10/10 bad ass photo shoot for Oyster Online featuring Chic Girls Manon as Bjork, Sophia as Madonna, Yaya as Lauryn Hill, Olivia as Sade, Ollie as Siouxie Sioux and Anthea as Jane Birkin.

Yes you read that right and yes it’s awesome

“Jane Birkin was portrayed as a wild sex
kitten and she had amazing style that has been timeless — her pictures
from the 60s are still fashionable today. I think she is amazing and it
was so fun to play dress up and be a bit naughty for the camera haha!” 
– Anthea

“I portrayed Lauryn Hill in this amazing
shoot. Lauren is an amazing woman and has had a great career as a whole.
It was fun because she is someone I look up to and have loved for
years. She has always been controversial and consistently speaks her
mind. Through her music and career choice Lauryn always looks to speak
to her fans and really truly inspire. I loved her performance in the Sister Act 2
and I think that when I truly looked into her life and career. In this
shoot we focused on her 90s style — her hairstyle and natural make-up
choices. I had heaps of fun…It was so much fun portraying this
incredible icon.  I hope she sees this shoot. I think Natalia did an
amazing job with this project and I’m glad she chose me to be a part of
it.”
– Yaya

“Madonna will always be the
undeniable queen of pop — a label given to her not only due to the
popularity of her music but also her controversially outrageous antics
that caused international mania and idolisation. To me, Madonna is a
fearless entertainer who has always dared to venture into territory that
is considered, perhaps, taboo. I would argue that it is this quality
that has driven her career to span over decades. Everyone loves a sassy
maverick!” –
Sophia
“I look at Sade and see a woman oozing
with confidence and sex appeal. It’s empowering to see a woman be so
compelling in such an understated manner.”
– Olivia

“Siouxie has always been a great
inspiration to me, the strength in her voice and performance along with
her dynamic aesthetic and powerful attitude gives me courage. Having the
opportunity to embody her spirit in imagery was a wonderful
experience.”
