Mirte Maas by Hugh Lippe for Russh #44
Mirte looks so very pretty in the February issue of Russh. There is a dreamy romanticism to her editorial that feels utterly befitting of a February issue. And Mirte looks exceptionally pretty with natural makeup and softly mussed hair. I love the charmingly rumpled air about her; nothing about this feels too carefully done. There is something sweetly innocent about the ethereal white lace and light knit styling in spite of the fair amount of skin it exposes. Mirte comes across more adorable than seductive. And I love the setting of the dilapidated house as the peeling cracked paint and worn down wooden floorboards provide great contrast to the pristine white pieces. The air of abandonment to the scenery just adds a sort of romantic frailty to the tone. Moreover, I like how the varied texture in this editorial create an overall softness rather than adding edge. I am most certainly picking up this issue when it releases in the US.
