Grimes is “making art” with her latest fashion project.
The “Shinigami Eyes” singer stars in Australian fashion designer Dion Lee’s Spring 2022 campaign, even posing nude in a beaded harness for one particularly striking shot.
“Making art for @dionlee,” Grimes captioned one of several Instagram posts showing off the new ads, which were photographed by Bryan Huynh and feature CGI artwork by Olf Studio.
In the pictures, she models gleaming white hair, red eye makeup, and a slew of different Dion Lee looks, including fishnet skirts, a white lace suit, and the aforementioned body jewelry.
The photos were taken at the hyperpop singer’s home in Austin, Texas, where she lives to be close to ex Elon Musk, with whom she co-parents two children: son X Æ A-12 (aka “X “), 1, and daughter Exa Dark Sideræl, 4 months.
Only a few of his alien-inspired tattoos can be seen in the snaps. As the star shared in January, she’s on a mission “to have a complete alien body” that’s “totally covered in white ink.”
Grimes, née Claire Elise Boucher, told Vogue she’s been a “huge fan” of Lee’s work for a long time, as “her work seems to exist in ‘Dune,'” describing it as “medieval sci-fi energy.” “.
She particularly liked the white jacket she wore for filming, she added, because “it’s a very androgynous anime.”
Grimes, who did her makeup for the day, also shared that she’s started using brushes to create wild beauty looks, calling the technique a “game changer in terms of creating detail.”
And the Canadian singer admitted her style suffered during lockdown, saying: ‘My style went into XL t-shirts for a minute but is on recovery now.’
Grimes added, “I’m degothier so the aesthetic is mostly white…. it’s mostly medieval futurism.
Here’s hoping the 34-year-old mother of two brings her new all-white aesthetic to the 2022 Met Gala in May.
In 2018, she hit the star-studded carpet in a Vantablack crown, glass corset and choker that resembled the Tesla logo; Musk, her new boyfriend at the time, later confirmed by post that the jewels were actually “a bunch of spikes”.
