Colonia, New Jersey-born and self-taught fashion photographer Tyler Kenny @tylerkennyphoto presents The Runways, a fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the gorgeous models Cy Busson @cybusson and Chloe Avenaim @chloeavenaim represented by Next Models Miami @nextmodelsmia.
The editorial was inspired by all the Hollywood classics like Bonnie and Clyde, Dirty Dancing, and Romeo and Juliet. Two troubled teens who fall in love in the wrong place seek an escape from their current reality to be together. Freeing themselves of restraints put on by others to finally be themselves.
The photographer and stylists agreed on focusing the story on words surrounding teens on the run. “Grungy, hidden, drama, secrecy, and rebellion are what came to mind,” says the photographer. “I pulled inspiration from old holly wood films, James Dean, Dirty Dancing, and the Bonnie and Clyde of course. Photographers that inspired my eye for this project were Ellen Von Unwerth, Mario Testino and Paul
“The vibes we were looking for were hopeless romantic with a dash of Rebellion. I want the viewer to run away with us.”Tyler Kenny
“We knew right away that this story was going to be a hit. We could feel on set the emotion we created, we weren’t just shooting an editorial we were filming a movie. Now that everything is finished we couldn’t be happier with our modern and youthful twist on Bonnie and Clyde.”
For this editorial Tyler Kenny used a Canon 5D Mark 2 with a 24-105mm Lens, using only natural sunlight and the softbox of the sky. It was shot in multiple locations all over Miami, and all of them were unplanned.
The models are dressed to impress with the amazing job that the stylist Lina Rodriguez @linafashionstylist did, with edgy clothes, mixing a lot of different designers such as Hardcore fashion, Alice and Olivia, Silvia Erazo, Alexander Vauthier, Stuart Weitzman, Phillipp Plein, Ranch Road Boots, James 113, In House Kreation and Luxury brands such as Diesel, Chloe, Amiri, Alexander McQueen, Alexander Wang, Givenchy, Prada, Chanel, and Versace.
“The models CY Busson and Chloé Avenaim couldn’t have more chemistry on set. They portrayed this love story perfectly and really embodied these rebellious characters. They gave us nothing but confidence, sexiness, and intimate moments and brought you back to a young love of your own.”
