Anna Ewers, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Natasha Poly, Vittoria Ceretti & Doutzen Kroes go a ‘la natural for a high fashion line-up unlike we’ve seen. To speak one’s thoughts through the act of display with words falling off my lips like a mini Hemingway. To transfer styles to sound-waves… would allow the frequency of chic to hit the streets.

Stella Lucia Stuns Us Senseless "Good Girl Gone Bad" in Dazed

Stella Lucia stuns us senseless in “Good Girl Gone Bad” by Bettina Rheims for Dazed Digital, SS17. Artful images dominate this page as Stella emerges in a riotous rage. Her passionate overtones are obvious, however, it’s the subtle makings of sadness that keep me engaged. Here we have a woman on the edge. Teetering towards a tenuous truth, one where what we believe is not marked by what we see, rather, what is unveiled is voraciously met by vicious ends.
