Maria Melnik by Nikolay Biryukov for Elle Ukraine June 2011

This got me with the white Hervé Léger suit in shot 3; I love the angular cut-outs to the suit.  Just the lines to the suit in general are fabulous.  I also really like the stark black and white color palette with just a blue skyline providing a dose of color.  There’s something intense and earthy about it; the texture of the rock behind her is nice as well.  I tend to like summer shoots like this over the neon happy beach shoots that typically crop up at this time of year.  The posing is not spectacular or anything, but I think the suits and pieces tend to speak for themselves.  Also, the tan lines would be horrendous, by Hervé Léger by Max Azria is always a unique (and sexy!) option for summer.
