Candice Swanepoel Rocks Her Lycra Leggings Off in Vogue Japan
Posted May 16, 2012
Gathering every scrumptious morsel from the fabulous 80’s, Terry Richardson delivers a “delicious” pictorial, for the June cover-shoot of Vogue Japan. Celebrating the Era of Excess, Candice Swanepoel rocks her lycra leggings off, in this kitchy tale of spandex-love, “The Girl Can’t Help It.” In this pastel-colored dream, Richardson manages to bring edgy-funk to the vintage-inspired layout, with looks that feel ultra-modern while maintaining a solid 80’s vibe. Never taking himself too seriously, his editorials are often saturated in satire, but filled with relevant images meant to move the fashion story forward. It may appear light & fluffy, but on closer inspection, his true genius is revealed in his natural ability to re-imagine themes. The lesson here is one of re-invention & innovation. F*&k being a follower, take what inspires you and make it new. Your life will be richer, and our world will be exponentially more interesting.
