Vision of Delight

After lighting the runway ablaze her intense stare and singlehandedly bringing back the bowl cut, she abandons her signature look for a softer blonder look.  Surprisingly, despite my reservations about Asian women going blonde, she looks good as blond.  It is a bit reminiscent of Daul Kim (who is still sorely missed) when she had gone blonde.  I almost didn’t recognize her because this hair softens her look quite a bit.  The photography adds to that romantic softness along with the styling of floaty summer dresses.   Camilla Akrans follows up well with her signature style. This is quite the spring editorial, making me long for warmer weather.

Liya Kebede by Timothy Barnes

This photography is gorgeous and Liya is breathtaking.  From far away, she kinda looks like Zoe Saldana, who is equally breathtaking.  While I’m not exactly sure on the theme, I do love the darkly romantic quality to it.  Liya is graceful and elegant, quite like a ballerina with that pulled back bun.

Blue Breeze

Love the lighting.  Vogue China always has beautiful tasteful editorials and lately there’s a central neutral theme in the styling.  Even if this is mainly a black and denim shoot, there’s a sandy wash that comes out.  Mark Segal has impressive work.  And Sigrid Agren is beautiful with her beachy waves and gold smokey eye.

Kendra Spears by Lachlan Bailey

She really does resemble Cindy Crawford.  I love this black and white photography with the sporty All-American styled shoot.  One thing that’s awesome about it is while she’s breathtakingly gorgeous and lithe, you see the goosebumps and body hair in the close ups.  And it’s because she’s human.  Not some ethereal creature that is impossible to reach.  She is beautiful exactly as she is and there is no need for the extreme photoshopping that goes on for magazine shoots.
