Shot at a private Beverly Hills residence, which has been praised by many lifestyle magazines including Architectural Digest, Runa believes “it was the perfect location for the calendar because of its warm, elegant, and grandeur appeal” which compliments her personal style.
The 8.5” x 11” 12-month wall calendar will feature the bikini-clad Runa Lucienne posing in a mixture of swimwear and lingerie including a purple, black, and white leopard print lace bikini by Ultra Vixen, a swimwear boutique located in Hollywood, California. The model dawns wild seductive curls styled by Queen Boone, a bi-coastal celebrity hair stylist whose work has been featured in numerous publications including FHM magazine. The calendar was shot by LA-based glamour photographer Tatianna Lavin of TL Glam Studio whose work has been featured in Vibe, Straight Stuntin’, and many more magazines.
