Thanks to everyone who entered 2023 Lust Photographic Competition. Lust appreciates your continued support as well as the growth it brings to both the competition and the brand itself. Judging was particularly hard this year as so many stunning entries were received. Year on year, the level of creativity, vision and talent continues to blow everyone away! Here are the Judges comments:
The winner of this category has truly exemplified forward thinking, fashion focused styling. The choice the stylist made to incorporate feathers to create the pixie inspired shape is not only creative but very cleaver. I love the small amount of movement in the length and feel this really ties the different textures together. Great choice of clothing, model, make up, model pose. Beautiful image.
This striking entry was my favourite in this category because of its combination of a cool edgy haircut combined with a uniquely, beautiful and complementing colour palette. It is an exciting blend of contemporary and originality, earning it a well-deserved spot on the podium. I feel the image portrays the careful consideration that the stylist has put into every detail. From the hair colour, cut, style, makeup, clothing and photography, each area has been executed to the highest standard.
A heartfelt congratulations to my winner of the Emerging Stylist competition. Your choice of the ‘on-trend’ feminine pink is absolutely captivating, but what truly makes your entry stand out is the surprising and delightful pop of periwinkle around the temples. Upon closer examination, it is evident that you have masterfully woven a story of happiness into this photo. The shine and brilliance of your hair colour creation is nothing short of spectacular. Not only does your entry exude a modern, yet nostalgic style but also a sense of joy and radiance that is truly commendable. Well done!
This beautiful entry was a social media favourite from the get go! The eye-catching colour palette, enhanced by the trendy yet unique cut, style and makeup was sure to be popular and the large number of likes this image received on our social media pages confirmed this.
