Photographer BJ Pascual did not hold back for his first YouTube anniversary. He wrapped up the past 12 months of his Musings series with a bang, teaming up with some of the industry's greatest to shoot stunning images of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. Not only that, this set might just be Pia's sultriest, and most daring photoshoot yet.
BJ and former Preview creative director Vince Uy were inspired by decade-specific aesthetics for this project. One of the first layouts they revealed features a blonde Pia with snakes around her, a nod to supermodel Veruschka and the rebellious minimalism of the '90s. Even Pia agreed that it's one of her most death-defying shoots so far!
The second half of the shoot was reptile-free, making a statement by marrying '50s sex kitten and '60s bombshell looks instead.
Here, Pia posed in sultry black and red lingerie against 1950s motel-inspired sets by Justine Arcega Bumanlag. Her beauty look was heavily inspired by Bettie Page and Brigitte Bardot's signature fringed bouffant and red lip, but with a sleek, modern twist.
Needless to say, this shoot is one for the books. Congratulations on your YouTube anniversary, BJ!
