Yulia Kharlapanova by Johan Sandberg for Marie Claire Italia June 2011

I almost didn’t recognize Yulia for some reason.  While she is still her sultry self, I think she is a bit earthier in this than I had expected.   In any case, this is a lovely piece of work from her.  The posing is highly intriguing without going too far out of the box, and the feel to this editorial is nice and easy.  It takes summer in a different direction from the loud neon brights and sexy deconstructed styling we normally see.  And I actually really love how she displays her breasts in this.  I think it’s sexy without being overly overt.  Yulia is a bit of a glamazon in this inherent sensuality and fierce edge.  The black and white shots add a classic touch to this.  In fact, the pieces feel sophisticated and modern, presenting picturesque summer elegance.
