Leonardo has assembled several intriguing elements to construct the set on which new model Lily C. makes her nude debut. A curtain of shocking pink fringe hangs from the ceiling. The backdrop is black, patterned with stylized stars. The floor is an inky, glossy black. And Lily appears, dressed only in high heels and a sheer, glittering teddy. The effect is dramatic and theatrical.
As this performance unfolds we witness a tyro talent with prodigious potential. The camera loves Lily, and Lily loves it in return. She is proud and confident, but her spirit remains warm and lively. The curtains are a useful prop, they give the set a splashy burst of color, while flattering the model’s skin tones, in particular her own luscious “pink bits.”
Poses are widely varied, affording views from many mouthwatering angles. In the final moments, a pattern of stars, matching the backdrop, is projected onto the model as she lounges on the floor. Brava, Lily! Bravo, Leonardo. I eagerly await an encore!
