Rinoa Heartilly, from Final Fantasy VIII
Being that Final Fantasy VIII is one of my favourite videogames of all time, it makes sense that Rinoa Heartilly is the first to be styled on Junction ELLE. Taking heavy cues from her black-blue-white colour scheme, I tried to incorporate an Erika Bearman meets Olivia Palermo look. She did grow up in the metropolitan Galbadia capital, Deling City. It’s probably the cultural equivalent to our New York City, so a stylish Rinoa would take on a dainty but tough-as-nails aesthetic.
