Here I was interested in the complexity of the interlocking arms. I saw a photograph somewhere with a similar gesture, made some sketches from memory, and thought it would be straightforward enough to get the model into that pose. However, it wasn't so easy. I tried with several models and couldn't achieve the elegant complexity I was after. Not everyone is a contortionist, I guess. Kristin, though, made it work. She also has some very beautiful dresses. This one was metallic and sleek, yet sophisticated.
