Model of the Month – February


Bonjour! I’m Tess, also known as Belle de Jour. I have been modelling since 2013, where in my first shoot a design student covered me in gold paint and gold chains. From there I started working with photographers who had an interest in design and art, which resulted in a lot of creative collaborations.

I’m also a trained dancer, so I try to incorporate dance into my shoots wherever I can. My favourite thing about modelling is embracing a new character in front of the camera, and I’m ever hopeful that no two photos will look the same.
