Sasha Pivovarova by Laurie Bartley for Vogue China November 2005
I must say: Sasha looks eerily beautiful in this editorial. While I tend to love dance themed shoots on principle, the shot above really sold me. There is an intensity in her eyes that’s intriguing; not to mention the purple around her eyes offsets her blue eyes fantastically. She really is gorgeous. I love the use of the chalk throughout the shoot since it plays on the ballerina chalk for pointe but also powder for the face. You’d think everything would become whitewashed with all paleness, but the contrast is astounding. Color around her eyes stand out in sharp relief against this white background. Laurie Bartley manages to capture something wonderful as Sasha plays off on the mood of the shoot perfectly.
