Tao Okamoto Editorial for Commons&Sense Magazine #34, Spring/Summer 2008

Tao Okamoto was one of the first models I noticed when I started this blog about 2 years ago. She was a staple on the New York & London Fashion Week until the Chinese and Korean models invaded the runways. She has since disappeared from the spotlight until I found this editorial of her in the Japanese avant garde magazine, Commons&Sense, Issue #34 (Spring/Summer 2008). I'm so glad to see her back on the pages of fashion again.

Her most notable work has been in the ad campaigns for Anne Fontaine (Spring/Summer 2007) and Moschino (Fall 2007/Winter 2008). She has also appeared in Teen Vogue (April 2007) and New York Times' T Magazine (August 2007) in the US.

the first and third shots are my faves!
sometimes I watch tv shows about models (Models NYC, Janice Dickinson, etc) and I see how hard it is to a guy/girl to be a model and how horrible is the competion. So it's kinda sad when we have such beautiful models like Tao disappear from the spotlight :(

I see that she is doing well, I saw her on China Vogue and Taiwan Vogue. The most reason she doesn't appear on more major magazine is she lives in Japan. She should be based in NYC or Paris and try more.

Anon, do you have any scans of her editorials for China Vogue and Taiwan Vogue? If so, could you please e-mail them to me? Thank.
