Shot on a warm winter’s day at a spectacular house overlooking Palm Beach in Sydney’s glorious Northern Beaches, 18 year old Lianna Perdis joined the marie claire team to shoot her first fashion story for the November issue – out now. This was very much a family affair with Lianna’s makeup king father Napoleon Perdis, on hand to create his daughter’s gorgeous smokey-eyed makeup look.
Every bit the professional, Lianna has well and truly made her mark as a successful model. Styled in a blend of Australian and international designers, Lianna was able to contort herself into all sorts of positions (thanks to a background in dance) for the marie claire shoot, as photographer David Mandelberg snapped away both inside the property and outside in the dazzling sunlight.
Perfect complexioned with pillowy lips, and her own makeup line, Total Bae, Lianna has become something of a beauty entrepreneur too. Even though she says she doesn’t call herself that. “I don’t like to call myself an entrepreneur, I just like to do my own thing,” says Perdis when she sits down with her father to speak to marie claire.
About to start university next year in Sydney, the Athens-based beauty will be moving back to Sydney soon. We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!
The November issue of marie claire is out now.
