Dep Magazine Shoots the Year of the Rooster
January Cover features a striking Lilly Nguyen all feathered-up
If last year’s hyperactive Year of the Monkey was one you’d rather say goodbye to, you’re not alone. As soon as we thought things were getting better, America goes and elects an absolute Turkey, then George Michael and Princess Leia check out! WTF. Luckily, to help us wipe the slate clean, Dep Magazine have created a powerful and visually stunning cover shoot featuring Lilly Nguyen, dressed as this year’s zodiac sign - the Rooster!
With astrologists predicting a year of progress in 2017, (let's face it there has to be) and one where first impressions count, we think this shoot nails it. This is as dramatic and exciting as it gets; that gold sequin gown, that arrangement of eggs and finally that living headpiece. We love it.
Kudos must go to stylist Mach Huy, the props team and photographer Tri Nghia, who have all excelled to produce a set of images worthy of any cover we know about. It's fun, but it's also eloquent, and dripping with Tet flavoured narrative. Talk about hard work, loyalty and commitment being rewarded. Bravo Dep, and welcome to the Year of the Rooster everyone!
