Solange Wilvert by Paul de Luna for Blank Magazine February 2011
There is something really striking about this long length. Incidentally, I was inspired to wear a maxi skirt for that very reason. In the editorial, the skirt has one long flowing uninterrupted line which does some really nice things for Solange’s silhouette. [Well, mine did was well, but that’s hardly relevant :P] Moreover, Solange is sexy and sensual with barely any skin peeking through. I love that. That the state of being “sexy” is an attitude and feeling that goes beyond baring skin as a default for being “sexy”. I also like the starkness of the inky black structured hourglass shape against the brightly exposed seaside. Very nicely done. The only thing that bugged me was the saturation and lighting; the photography feels overexposed. But perhaps that effect was done on purpose. Personally, I’m not a fan, but it works for this shoot I guess.
