Bunny Ain’t No Kind of Rider

Ieva Laguna & Tony Ward by Will Davidson for Russh #34

I kind have fallen in love with this editorial.  It’s utterly messy, strikingly sensual, beautifully artsy, and perfect in ways I wasn’t able to anticipate.  My like of it kind of took me by surprise, which is fantastic in itself.  I love things that are able to evoke a response without me already knowing I’m going to like/dislike something.  Another thing about this is how fantastically vibrant it is.  The colors run wild in this as the paint serves as a wonderful foil to what’s being created.  This is creativity at its best, and I hope that Russh continues to shock in the best way.

Behati Prinsloo by Camilla Akrans

Behati Prinsloo by Camilla Akrans for Vogue Nippon May 2007

Behati’s quite the vamp in this editorial; and I mean this in the best possible way.  There’s an old school glamour about this shoot.  And I do so love a good throwback.  Although I’m used to her more playful side, I love how powerful of a model she is.  Her work moves me.   She does this beautiful, artful, and occasionally, heart-wrenching work that I can’t help but love.  In this case, I love the sophistication she brings to it.  Behati is certainly someone watch.  Not to mention, I always enjoy Camilla Akrans’ romantic style of shooting.

Daria Werbowy by Mikael Jansson

Daria Werbowy by Mikael Jansson for Vogue Paris March 2005

<3 Daria.  And the styling for this is most excellent.  I simply adore how her tawny limbs practically blend into the camel car interior.  It’s a really cool effect.  There is a timeless quality about this editorial; Vogue Paris totally wins every time (even 5 years ago).  And in one shot, she strongly reminds me of Farrah.  Daria’s just effortlessly cool and chic.

Pussy Galore

Ali Cat of Ghostcat by Jermaine Francis for Twin #2

I actually saved this shoot for the outfit featured above.  It’s casual and very sophisticated with just enough edge to interest me.  However, there is a quality about her that pulled me in.  It’s interesting how immersed in details I can become.  For one, that shot with her hands I could not stop focusing on her ring.  It’s tiny little details like that I can totally appreciate in this shoot.

Bo Don by Billy Kid

This type of photography reminds me of Hedi Slimane.  The effect to it is quite nice (especially the very first shot); I love the way her hair just flutters around her.  This portrait series is tasteful and stunning in its simplicity.

Brianna Barnes by Weston Wells

Gorgeous.  I love the relaxed air about this.  Everything’s effortless about this portrait series.  While impressive poses are more than welcome in editorials, I like portrait series to have a naturalness about them.  And this has an ease about it.  And there isn’t a contrived quality about it; things just come together nicely that way.

Shalom Harlow by Karl Lagerfeld

Shalom Harlow by Karl Lagerfeld for Numéro #66 September 2005

I love Shalom Harlow.  Absolutely love her.  Beside Christy, Shalom is probably my favorite supermodel of the 90s.  And she looks fantastic being shot by Karl Lagerfeld (the Kaiser himself).
