Bride's Prank Calls Off a Wedding in China

Playing a prank is a fun and enjoyable way to some people. But playing a prank on your wedding day might not be a great idea at all.

In Shenzhen City, China, a groom calls off his own wedding when his supposedly 26 year old bride appeared at the wedding venue all dressed up in her wedding gown but with the face of a 50-year old woman.  The bride, Qing Kao has thought of making a prank to test if her groom, Guo Chien will still accept her even if her youthful looks fades into her old version. The supposedly happy event turned into a disaster when the groom decided to quit the wedding vow. Seeing his bride to be in her wedding gown but with the face of an old woman have turned his excitement to sour and anger as the bride tried so hard to tell her groom that her looks was all part of a joke to test his love for her despite her looks. The groom was not pleased but instead out of rage calls off the wedding for good. The bride was left on the venue all sorry for the prank and what she did resulting a broken wedding vow.  Watch how the event happened in the following video clip:

Steven Sebring Study of Pose: 1,000 Poses by Coco Rocha

1,000 poses for a 360 degrees supermodel  

Canadian Supermodel Coco Rocha shows all what the human form was all as she pose in collaboration with New York ace fashion photographer Steven Sebring in his new book entitled: Study of Pose: 1000 Poses by Coco Rocha. The book which is Sebring’s version of four dimensional perspective photography will allow readers and viewers of his photographic wizardry in witnessing the art of multi-dimensional photography in 360 degrees capture.  
Choosing Coco Rocha was equally brilliant since the Toronto born Supermodel has already made a niche of her own in the world of poses and fashion. Aan international fashion icon she had already been featured on several internationally acclaimed fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Flare, Harper’s Bazaar and Time & Style to name a few.  She already did fashion ad campaigns for renowned fashion brands like Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, Chanel, DeBeers, Dior, D&G, Versace, YSL and Zac Posen.

On her part, Coco was even candid in saying she really has no idea if she had really posed 1,000 poses in her repertoire. Her work with Sebring was all a delight and hope that the art will thrive as a new concept in fashion photography.

Capturing the Human Form in 360 degrees

According to Sebring, through the wizardry of combining together art, technology and engineering. Sebring has conceived this decade-long idea into the static pages of the book by the use of a touch screen app, one can basically manipulate the images in all 360 degrees angle as if the viewer is a participant exploring during the shoot. The concept was done using a 100-camera set up arranged in a circle which Sebring calls, “The Rig.” For Sebring, “Every time we shoot, it’s like opening Pandora’s box. It’s a new way of seeing things.” he said. Sebring told NY Daily News, “I wanted to document the human form. I wanted people to pick up the book and use it as a reference or as an art object.“ The fourth dimension, Sebring reveal will be the soundtracks over the shoots completing the interactive photo art.
