Karmen Pedaru reaches ‘High Glam’ status in Alexi Lubormirski’s artful rendition of modern glamour in the June 2013 issue of Vogue Germany. A vivid extension of vintage representation, decades of decadence come together to form a fusion of fashion unlike we’ve ever seen. Posed to perfection, Pedaru’s beautifully bronzed skin and gorgeous gams, refract off the surfaces making a mirrored reflection of eras gone by. With references ranging from the 40’s party pin-up girl to the luxury laden 70’s sex-goddess, (stylist) Christiane Arp creates a series of retro eclectic looks inspired by the golden age of Hollywood. Bold, beauty built on the idea of excellence, this exquisite piece of exotic artistry reminds us of a time when glamour wasn’t just a style is was a state of mind. Nature set in motion, with vibrant hues so alive the pigment presentation gives the textures a dynamic new dimension, Lubormirski’s romantic renderings echo that of traditional oil painting techniques.
