Emily DiDonato by Sølve Sundsbø for Numéro #117
God this is hot. Now this is more I like it! Numéro always has such gorgeous creative editorials; this one is no different. It’s seems lately that Emily DiDonato has been everywhere, and that’s not a bad thing. Sølve Sundsbø certainly does his thing. This is precisely what I was talking about in terms of avante-garde editorials that seem fantastical without leaving me with plastic robots for models. Everything is sleek without going overboard, there’s an otherworldly element to it, and the lighting is spectacular. Emily is pitch perfect sensually; I love how she caresses the water. Not to mention, the metallic styling is amazing. Especially those shoes. The spikes! God. I would not be surprised if Alexander McQueen had made those, but they’re probably Nicholas Kirkwood (the man makes gorgeous shoes). This is edgy without expense to glamour and luxury.
