Modesty Blaise Photo Shoot

These gorgeous Modesty Blaise-inspired photos are part of a spread for online magazine UCE. The make-up artist, Maria Oldenstedt, has this to share about it in her blog:

"This is the latest photo shoot we did for the online mag UCE Magazine. The theme was 'Criminal intent' and we chose to be inspired by the style icon and cult figure Modesty Blaise, and built up a little story
around her. Go to Spectacular Studios and check out the photos in larger versions."
