Dua Lipa ~ Fashion Sinks Into Soul of 70's ~ V Magazine

Dua Lipa sinks into the soul of the 70’s by Mario Testino for V Magazine #105, Spring Preview 2017. Her voice rips through my mind like whiskey tearing through my chest in kind. Her ballads bring forth a wicked mixture of hope and heretic, as the undulating rhythm meets the poetic rhyme. Leaving behind the idea of rock ‘n’ roll, we find ourselves memorized by the new sounds of… Rock & Soul.

Estella Boersma & Jaden Smith "A Brave New World" Vogue It

Estella Boersma & Jaden Smith bring the beauty of youth forward in “A Brave New World” by Bruce Weber for Vogue Italia, January 2017. Art unleashes the beast with imagery that captures the cinema of the eccentric. Gone are the days of clean and extreme as we welcome into view a dream inside a dream. Lost inside the languid lines of linear space, a Brave New World deigns to take shape. Hiding inside the recesses of the mind Paul Cavaco gives us a new concept on the craft of mining creativity.

The Art of Extreme Caught in a Dream for "Rave Girls Rule"

Empowerment unites, forging a pathway for feminine energy to be exposed. Pictures mix mayhem with modern-day couture celebrating model-of-the-moment, Imaan Hammam. Dynamic wares dare to get things done, as laid back leisure mixes with high end fun.

Cutting-edge ideas create a visual masterpiece with shots that symbolize the spirit of unity. Imagery injects a sense of inspiration, making us believe we are seeing moving pictures. Future fashion has arrived as the past and future dare to collide.

Grace Elizabeth Lets the Water Wash Over Her, Camilla Akrans

Grace Elizabeth floats free in “H20” by Camilla Akrans for Vogue Germany, January 2017. Drowning in her daydreams she floats upon the lake, as water wades around her in this transient sort of state. Akrans takes us on a ride through our mind’s eye, traveling inside our imagination until our thoughts are set free. “Because rain diminishes sunlight, it creates human emotions that can bring darkness and depression.” However, here we take a new view.

Gigi Hadid Redefines What It Means to ~ Ride Bareback ~

Gigi Hadid redefines what it means to ride bareback in “Gigi Bares it All” by Patrick Demarchelier for Allure Magazine, December ’16. Beth Fenton uses fashion as a frame, surrounding Gigi in a series of see-thru styles. Subtle features expand, lending themselves to the build up of the eyes. While beauty inspires nature, leaving Sally Branka to swoop in with deep blue shadow. Lashes are left naked, as a cerulean shade covers the lids and then finishes below with a soft, yielding echo.

Gorgeous Gathers Selfie Nation Speaks #thenowsquad Vogue It

The Selfie Cult takes a stand in “#thenowsquad” by Steven Klein for Vogue Italia, November 2016. Gorgeous gathers as the selfie nation speaks. A compelling look at the progression of modern art. These girls revel at the sight of themselves in this quirky piece of pop-art culture. Are they real or are they robots? At first glance we witness a group of vivacious go-getters, young women who appear to be independent thinkers, yet upon closer examination we see the clique crew take over.

A Flaunting Flurry of Sparkles Shine On

Cece brings in the sparkle as she sets out to “High Shine” by Kailas for SÝN Magazine, Issue XIX. Her skin is smooth as butter, melting down her body like silk seeking form. Red provides backdrop as each image stokes the fires of true passion. Kailas uses a come-hither stare as a source of enticement, while the overbearing innocence of her countenance cannot be denied. Tiny curls spin around her head like so many secrets waiting to be told.

Gigi Hadid Brings Us Back to Era of Decadence in Vogue Paris

Gigi Hadid brings us back to the decadence of high design in “Vacances Romaines” by Mario Testino for Vogue Paris, November 2016. Art and excess come together to form a fusion of high-end design. Emmanuelle Alt puts her signature twist all over this story by being excessive without being intrusive. Extravagance is the thing is this inventive mix of vintage and Au courant. This bold combination could be on a collision course of creativity, but instead, it sits in the high hands of Emmanuelle.

Lace Over Face See-Thru Pieces Uncover Truth in "My Princess"

Gigi Hadid ventures into the forest of high fashion in “Princess Gigi” by Luigi & Iango for Vogue Japan, December 2016. Embracing a more avant-garde route, this story takes her talents to an artistic end. Evocatively crafted, Luigi & Iango let the lens uncover her as opposed to asking the camera to simply shoot her. What some of the newer models/Insta-stars need to learn, in my humble opinion, is the act of what I call the Visual Get.

Lindsey Wixson Lets Body Share "Bare Necessities" for Garage

Lindsey Wixson opens her body to the “Bare Necessities” by Amanda Charchian in Garage Magazine, F/W 2016-17. A triumph of the senses is heightened as Lindsey becomes one with the Isle of Greece. Her mind is open and her body is set free as she finds herself seduced by the sounds of the sea. Not burdened by clothing, here we witness a woman totally at peace with her connection to the universe. Seeking emancipation, she drops robe, allowing herself to become one with the sun.

Burnt Embers of Our Past ~ Seek a Stronger Future in Numéro Mag

Ilvie Wittek faces the underlying fire that burns deep inside shot by Katja Mayer for Numéro Magazine, September 2016. The burnt embers of our past seek a stronger future, as smoldering sections signify the unspeakable pain we’ve endured as a people. Destruction is portrayed in charred pieces strewn across the floor, as wood is transformed into a tinderbox of tragedy. Construct controls chaos leaving us with the ravaging remnants of a once flaming inferno.
