milet Features in VOUGE GIRL’s ‘Girl of the Month’

25.February.2021 | FASHION / MUSIC

VOGUE GIRL is a leading new-generation web magazine picking up the latest in international trends for women. Its most popular feature is Girl of the Month which offers a close-up of a different girl every month where they serve their own fashion stories.

 

Donning the February 2021 issue is Japanese singer-songwriter milet. The J-pop and indie pop artist made her major debut in 2019 and is known for her deep, husky voice and global song writing. She released her first studio album in 2020 and went on to perform on the Japanese New Year’s Eve special Kōhaku Uta Gassen. Now, the successful singer makes her first front cover appearance in VOGUE GIRL where she is serving a modern look with monochrome stripes and a chicness reminiscent of the kabuki industry. Her eye-catching scarlet cape is lined with feathers while her floral dress gives us romantic vibes. It’s a seamless combination of striking red, black, and white.

 

“I wore clothes, makeup, and a hairstyle I never usually wear,” explains milet speaking about her feature in the magazine. “But I discovered a side of myself I never knew before. I had a lot of fun. It made me want to challenge myself to express in other ways too.”

 

An editor at VOGUE GIRL said: “milet’s well-polished beauty and combination of white, black, and red, which are strong, powerful colours, created this magical chemistry that resulted in the finished photoshoot. I want people to experience her unique charm in the photos and video for themselves. She wears the clothes; the clothes don’t wear her, no matter what they are.”

 

milet featured in VOGUE GIRL‘s “90 Second Challenge” video series where she talks about the songs she likes to listen to in the morning to give her energy, introduces her favourite spots in Tokyo, what she would like to eat as her final meal, and more.”
