First things first, happy New Year, make 2017 less horrific than the last. Vogue Japan is doing its able best in that regard in its February 2017 issue in a beauty story that doubles as a jewelry feature starring Saint Laurent darling Agnes Åkerlund. Photographed by Liz Collins and styled by Sissy Vian, “The Jewel Seduction,” as it is called, duly seduces through a mixture of natural Swedish beauty and precious gem stones. However this year plays out, early days, mind, thus far it has not disappointed.
