Vlada Roslyakova in ‘Love’ by Thanassis Krikis for Numéro Russia #5
Posted Aug 08, 2013
Channeling Blondie circa 1980, Vlada Roslyakova sends some ‘Love’ our way in this retro inspired number by Thanassis Krikis for the August 2013 issue of Numéro Russia #5. Playing a modern day Debbie Harry, Roslyakova reminds us of a time when fashion was all about being fearless and the best beauty came with a healthy dose of energy & attitude. With platinum blonde hair and razor-sharp cheekbones to match, she’s a dead ringer for the iconic rock star, exuding that same sense of spirited funk in a series of wild styles artfully arranged by Aliona Isaeva. From glamour to grunge and everything in-between, this era was all about the high/low trend blend, with looks that dared to combine thrift store finds with high end designs. Sexy with a hint of sweet, Krikis pays homage to the enduring influence of Blondie in this edgy editorial made with a veritable hodgepodge of vintage influence.
