Eniko Mihalik by Will Davidson for Muse Fall 2010
She really is terribly pretty. I love Eniko, but she rarely gets to just be pretty. She is always cast as sexy, dramatic, or avant garde. And sometimes I just miss the pretty. I’m glad that Muse was missing it as well. This may appear a rather simple editorial–and it probably is–but there is beauty in that simplicity. To me, this is a very decidedly spring editorial in fall. But there’s nothing wrong with that. Often, fashion strives to present a fantasy and dramatic glamour to life with their editorials, but the industry tends to forget the power of a natural pared-down, yet well done editorial. Muse has certainly not forgotten: it gives me a gorgeous cover with a pleasant accompanying editorial inside. I can’t really explain why this particular editorial drew me in. I tend to be picky about my editorials, discarding overly simplistic editorials. But this editorial had some magic to it. Just something that was more than a pretty girl frolicking amidst flowers. Perhaps it is the beauty of it. Will Davidson expertly executes this with a softness that I adore. In any case, I like this without having to competently dissect why.
