Frontiers Magazine Horror Fashion Editorial With Selene Luna

Frontiers Magazine, Southern California's oldest GLBT publication, recently published a beautiful Halloween-themed fashion editorial spread starring the fabulous Miss Selene Luna.

At Fashion Sanity, we aim to promote and celebrate diversity in beauty and we love to see fierce, amazing, confident, incredibly talented, multi-faceted and self-assured women like Selene Luna breaking ground in fashion, entertainment and changing societal perspectives.

Here is Selene Luna's bio from her facebook page:
Selene Luna is a one-of-a-kind entertainer with a look and style all her own. At 3'10", Luna is a small package with a very big presence. She is a talented performer with timeless sex appeal that makes her equally viable as a vintage Hollywood glamour girl or a modern music video vixen. She is part burlesque star and part rock and roll queen. Luna is a performer who embodies the eccentricities of 1930's screwball comedies, combining a keen sense of comedic timing with smoldering sensuality. She is a larger than life personality, with a body of work as impressive as it is eclectic.

Luna began her career performing among Hollywood's eccentric artist community. She cut her teeth performing in clubs and art venues, doing stand up comedy and acting in independent films. She quickly became a darling of Hollywood's underground scene. True to her roots, Luna has built a career performing in cabarets and burlesque, and is a well known performer in this scene. Miss Luna was a featured performer in the Velvet Hammer Burlesque, the internationally renowned troupe, which is the originator of the current burlesque revival. As the world's only little person burlesque dancer, Luna has performed internationally, has been the subject of numerous news features and documentaries, and has shared the stage with legends of burlesque such as Tempest Storm and Tura Satana. Luna's burlesque background has infused her performing style with a strong sense of theatricality, improvisation and comedy.

Luna has crossed over to mainstream film, television and print work. She has worked with respected directors including Stephen Sommers, Dean Karr and Peter Berg. Her television work includes national Snapple and Cingular Wireless commercials, and music videos for some of musicʼs biggest acts including Madonna, Marilyn Manson, Crystal Method and Billy Talent.

Miss Luna's striking look has taken her to the world of high fashion as well. She has been featured in numerous international fashion editorials. Luna has modeled the fashions of designers such as Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, and has posed for photographers David La Chappelle, Matthew Ralston and Austin Young, in addition to working on stage under the direction of legendary couture designer Thierry Mugler.

In 2007, Miss Luna won critical notice for her featured performance in comedian Margaret Cho's Off-Broadway variety show, The Sensuous Woman. The New York Times called her "a polished spitfire," while NY Metromix praised her performance as "smart and endearing."

Last year, Luna could be seen co-starring alongside Margaret Cho in Cho's new VH1 comedy series, The Cho Show. This coming year, Luna can also be seen in a supporting character role in Lionsgate's January release of My Bloody Valentine 3D and has a role in the new Crackle web series, Star-ving, opposite David Faustino. Luna has successfully performed two sold-out solo shows in Los Angeles, Pocket Venus and Say It to My Face! and is currently developing her one-woman and doing stand-up performances throughout California.

Selene Luna has carved a niche for herself and continues to break the stereotypes of little people in entertainment. She is a comedic actress with sex appeal and leading lady flair. An up and coming presence in Hollywood, Luna continues to bring her magnetic appeal to broader audiences. She plans to shake things up in a big way.
