Mika Ninagawa has attitude…

Monday, May 18th, 2009

…and apparently so does Keiko Kitagawa (22). I’m SUCH a Mika Ninagawa fangirl. She’s one of my favorite Asian photographers, next to Leslie Kee—both of whom I really wanted to photograph Keiko. So when Keiko blogged about the amazing, talented, photographic color genius, Ninagawa— I nearly died! Drawing inspiration from the 60s pop art movement with bold colors and big hair, Ninagawa transformed her into quite the character. I’m impressed; almost didn’t recognize her! O_O

While it’s definitely not the style for everyone (and Ninagawa is never concerned about that) as a fan of graphic design, pop art, and (almost) all things photographically over the top this photo shoot turned out really well. I sincerely hope they collaborate in the future; we could eventually be looking at a full fledge photo book!

Chieco Makes Changes

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Everyone’s favorite best friend finally resurfaced after years out of the business! Chieco Kawabe (22), who recently got married to TBS producer Ochi Masato (43), has switched agencies  over to Stardust Promotion. Due to her marriage she has also changed her name to Chieko Ochi, as seen on her new blog and new agency profile. Despite her marriage and drop from record label VAP, Chieko still plans to remain active in the entertainment industry. While there is no word on when she will be returning as a singer or actress, she’s currently doing a little modeling and hosts a radio show. 

Geez, I really miss this girl! Even though her music didn’t sell well she’s such a wonderful singer! Stardust has a nice reputation of promoting even their newest talents really well so hopefully we’ll hear something from her in the future. In the meantime, remember the good days! Can’t believe it’s been three years since her last single!
