Anna Cleveland Redefines 1980s Diving Into Decadence

Anna Cleveland embraces the era of indulgence in “1980s” by Yelena Yemchuk for Vogue Ukraine, 03/17. In an age of excess highlighted by an array of head-spinning styles, high fashion is the thing. This history is a haute one, as Julie Pelipas defines the times by using a variety of creative couture. This borrows from the famous big-shouldered look of the day, with body-con bulk that made this decade famous.

Maartje Verhoef Brings Bold 80's Inspired Beauty Back!

Maartje Verhoef is amped up and ready to go in ‘Fully Charged’ by Charlotte Wales for Vogue UK, 03/17. It’s not often that we come across an editorial with four images that feel full. Here we have a story bursting at the seems, signalling the succulence of Spring coming our way. This season we have art and excess barreling toward each other at the speed of light. And, while that may feel like a furious ride, I’m here to tell you it’s right where you wanna be.

Kate Moss Pulls Us Into a Tale of Secrets/Seduction, W Magazine

Kate Moss and Luka Isaac pull us into a tale of secrets and seduction, in “Belle De Nuit” captured by Mert & Marcus for W Magazine, 03/17. Two enigmatic figures drawn together yet torn apart, this plays to the somber tones of silent era films. An ode to the artistry of decadence. Dress me up dress me down, this plays like Liz Taylor losing her mind in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, or the incomparable Marilyn Monroe in Niagara

Maison Margiela & Schiaparelli Steal Spring 2017 Shows

Haute Couture finds its center as Maison Margiela & Schiaparelli Steal the Spring 2017 Show Season. It’s not often that we have a season so rich in artistic detail. Each collection showcased a series of eclectic styles, but, it was two that literally Brought the House Down. In this world of opposites where the exquisitely strange takes shape, we find daringly different houses playing together on the same high fashion playground.

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.

Dynamic wares dare to get things done, as laid back leisure mixes with high end fun.

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.
