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.

Bella's Eye Beguiles in Vogue Italia's September 2016 Issue

Bella Hadid, Kiki Willems, Frederikke Sofie & Lulu capture the Fall covers in “Fashion of the Times” by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, September 2016. His artful inclination is to not just present his works, rather, he would have us experiencing the images from the inside… out. And, while his model choices might at first glance seem incongruent, they blend in the most beautiful way.

The soul of the city speaks as the music moves to the sounds of the streets. Wielding her worth Bair beckons… from behind the walls art evolves, around in every corner lurks a shadow that speaks. The city comes alive symbolizing the beauty of every brick. Not the sky-scraping buildings or even the low-rise structures – this celebrates the architecture of the urban jungle.
