Page Turners: California Dreaming with Teen Photographer Micaela Hoo

Ever-inspired by the freshest crop of teen talent, we thought we’d share the work of 19-year-old student and photographer Micaela Hoo of Drifter and the Gypsy. Micaela shot a ’60s-inspired editorial for the latest issue of London-based indie mag, Ballad Of that was too dreamy not to share. The editorial’s vintage-inspired ensembles are set against California’s historic Claremont Hotel, with hair and makeup inspired by Brigitte Bardot. Not only that, but there’s even an appearance of our favorite suits by Esther Williams, the Beach Blanket Bingo Two Piece!
