Monika Jagaciak for Atelier Versace Fall 2010 Lookbook
It is difficult to choose one shot to feature because all of it is breathtaking. With a lookbook like this, there hardly needs to be any sort of concept to interest me. When I first saw an Atelier Versace Lookbook (Kasia Struss for the Atelier Versace Lookbook Spring 2010), I was blown away. Donatella has always been known for her creativity and the innate sexiness of her dresses, but she has proven that she can do Haute Couture with the best of them. This is no different. While the dresses from the last one are more armor-like with clever cut-outs, these are sleek and well-crafted with a high slit. There is a timeless quality about the Fall 2010 Lookbook. I feel like Donatella is going for more high glamour, and she’s achieved it. Of course, I was already sold at Jac.
I can now say with certainty that she is my absolute favorite model. Funnily enough, I think she has the makings of a young Coco Rocha (who was my favorite model, but still is one of my top 10). Jac’s figure is well-proportioned and just right for these curve-hugging gowns. She has a smoldering gaze that pulls me every time. And she’s young at that. Although she’s already rapidly becoming an industry favorite, she’ll continue to learn and grow.
Would you just look at the last shot? Her hands are what make this shot spectacular. They are balleticly (I know. Not a word but it fits so too bad) graceful and wonderfully arched.
