'ICONIC WOMEN' by NURULITA for Plaza Indonesia

Nurulita idea for this Exhibition is to potraying the iconic beauty in the past by capturing the essence of the current beauties.huge name like Jane birkin, yoko ono, Anna May Wong, Iman Abdul Madjid, Grace jones, Annie Lennox, Twiggy, Lisa Fonssagrives and so many more. collaborating with 4 stylist, with am as one of them, is such a pleasure experience. my icons are Frida Kahlo, Audrey Hepburn, Isabella Blow, and Oey Hui Lan. 
 
Sadly Oei Hui Lan (madame Wellington- Koo) was dropped from the exhibition due to lack of spaces and similarity style to Anna May Wong (and May wong won with her iconic square bangs), and they said that Hui Lan was not a fashion icon, maybe they just forgot the fact that in the 20s she named as the best dressed Chinese woman by Vogue (even Madame Chiang Kai Shek didn't won that position). as the child of the richest man in Indonesia at that time and later she was married to the China ambassador for French, she basically the Chinese version of Jackie-O in the 20s.
