Curtain Call

Doesn’t she look a lot like Raquel Zimmerman?  I thought that that was her at first but her eyes and face are slightly different.  Anyway, dance + fashion?  No way I can resist that.  I love dance themed editorials because it combines two of my greatest passions.

The Love Zone

I love the angle of the shots.  It makes me dizzy in a good way.  I know that models are supposed to have legs that go forever but DAMN.  The very last shot has an elevation that blows my mind.  This editorial is creative and the photography is excellent.  Me likey :)

Hermes Fairytales

Not only is she a rising star, she gets to act out the classic fairytales, in Hermes fashion of course.  It’s beautiful and fantastical, exactly what fashion tends to be at its most avant garde.  However, there is nothing puzzling about this campaign.  It translates effortlessly into reality while still having the element escapism.  And of course I <3 Karlie Kloss.

The All-American

I love how utterly un-photoshopped this editorial is.  Devon, of course, does a fabulous job.  But you can actually see the skin puckering up into goose bumps.  Goose bumps kinda make me happy.  Because it’s such a human reaction.  Fashion tends to try to give us a fantastical take on life, and while that’s great at times, sometimes I really just want something that’s real.  And it shows that reality can be just as beautiful as the airbrushed images of perfection that we so desperately want.  Sometimes the beauty is in the imperfections.  I love that we see freckles and goose bumps and yet they don’t take away from the shoot at all.  Of course she still looks utterly gorgeous.

The One and Only Ms. Abbey Lee Kershaw

The lovely Miss Abbey Lee Kershaw. I loooooove her. And once again, nude is in.  In more ways than one.  Not to mention makes me long for summer even more.

The Beauty that is Abbey Lee

She’s gorgeous. She doesn’t even need make up. And that’s saying much for a beauty editorial. This adorable Australian beauty is everywhere all the sudden.  Not that I’m complaining.  I, for one, wouldn’t mind seeing her everywhere this year as well.  I adore her.  And I think that many others agree with me.

The Dancer: Lou Doillon

This is a whole new side to Lou Doillon. And a bit unexpected. I really enjoyed it though. She was free and joyful and it was hardly contrived. I can see why Vanessa Bruno chose to put her in the video poem. It is a bit poetic, freeing, and utterly human.  I especially liked the middle part where the mood completely switched over.  It was a little abrupt and quite pretty.

Une Journée Particulière

Loving the sultry editorials.  Makes me long for summer (although this is postively springlike weather, that’s really not surprising).  Looks like big loose hair and messy eye make up is in for the upcoming year.  Oh it is so on.
