Rosie Tupper Elle Sweden
While flicking through the May 2011 issue of Elle Sweden, this photoshoot really caught my eye. Not only is the lighting incredible (nice job, Andreas Sjödin), but the stylist – Lisa Lindqwister – has made an indisputable success of producing outside of the box. Model Rosie Tupper looks hypnotically elysian in some of Spring/Summer 2011‘s loudest and most obvious pieces; a killer contrast. View Post

A Dreamy Touch Melissa Tammerijn
Vogue Italia is obviously secure as the reigning Vogue – how can you not be with a spread like this? “A dreamy touch” was photographed by Sølve Sundsbø and styled by Patti Wilson. In my eyes, it is perfect; lighting, ensembles, Melissa Tammerijn, è più che perfetto! View Post

The Blackallure Vogue Italia
Hate the name, love the spread. While this shoot from Vogue Italia‘s February issue is titled “The Blackallure” (have we ever seen a “Whiteallure”?), each Emma Summerton-worked shot is a masterpiece. That perfect lighting is hitting the faces of Ajak Deng, Aminata Niaria, Arlenis Sosa, Chanel Iman, Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, Lais Ribeiro, Kinee Diouf, Melodie Monrose, Rose Cordero, and Sessilee Lopez. Glorious. View Post

Tuscan Turnaround Vogue Lara Stone
Tuscan Turnaround is an iconic start to the new year. It’s US Vogue. It’s Mario Testino. It’s Lara Stone. These are the type of shoots that make the girls of today and tomorrow save up to buy a monthly look into a world more magical than Narnia. The lighting is flawless, and plays with the many characters of Lara in the way of an exhausting dream. NSFW, but in a tasteful light. View Post

Patricia van der Vliet Vogue Russia Mariano Vivanco
Patricia van der Vliet just keeps getting better! For “Болъшая прогулка” in the January edition of Vogue Russia, a cool concept and the styling of Olga Dunina are undergoing a magical mesh. With a little bit of quirky lighting thrown on top of this visual feast, I’m convinced she and photographer Mariano Vivanco need to work together more often. View Post
