Samantha Gradoville by Federico De Angelis for Numéro Russia, July/August 2015
Posted Jul 04, 2015
Samantha Gradoville falls into a sea of salvation by Federico De Angelis for Numéro Russia. I watch the water of life wash over me as tiny drops of decadence defy my senses. An ethereal world filled with daring and wonder. Effervescence erupts all around as the power of art pushes over the page. Fashion floats free as each look invites us to weather the wetness. Stylist, Irina Marie, blends body-baring bathing suits with Summer designs by Alexandre Vauthier, Blumarine, Chloé, Dior, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Pinko, Cavalli, Sportmax & Zadig & Voltaire. Framing the face, (Makeup Artist) Helena Komorova brandishes dark beauty with brows that dare to become. As moody eyes erupt, the lids seal the deal with a sign of seduction. Inviting the sun to swim across the skin, a bronze tint touches the cheeks with a naked glow. Neo-color never looked so enticing as soft shades of nature kiss the lips. The furor of features come alive, showing us that strength lies in the ability to succumb. Hairstylist, Franco Argento, creates a wet dew coiffed to capture the essence of enticement. Feel the heat as couture burns with an avant-garde edge. Female fire caught in ethereal excess… wading in a pool of passion, my heart beats to the drum of the universe, I float away, as tiny wisps of water come and kiss me off to sleep.
