Love at first sight with an editorial

My reaction when I saw this editorial:


My favourite picture out of the set:

Photobucket
I just...NO. I HAVE NO WORDS. The lighting, the dress, the jewelery, the ocean, the pose, EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PICTURE IS AMAZING AND WONDERFUL.
If editorials continue to be this amazing, I'll be overjoyed!

(The rest of the gorgeous editorial and other opinions are after the jump.)

I really like how the title of the editorial doesn't overwhelm the picture, since she looks so pretty!

Photobucket
This is FIERCE!

I love the earrings.

Photobucket
I think she should always wear 1-shouldered everything, this bathing suit looks amazing on her! I also love the rings and cuff bracelet!

Photobucket
Fashion-wise this isn't necessarily the most interesting photo, but the not-quite-black-and-white shade looks interesting, and I love the composition of the page. Normally, with fashion, the focal point should be the clothes, accessories, makeup, or whatever they're advertising, and not the set (at least I'm assuming). So, technically the eye goes directly to the palm tree, which usually isn't a good thing, but it almost feels like there's supposed to be something else to focus on, so the eye is drawn to the palm tree and the model at the same time, which is an interesting effect?
Does that make sense?

I also love this page, it's probably my 2nd favourite. I love everything about it - the bathing suit, the turban, the jewelery, the pose, the blurred background... She looks fierce!


Photobucket
This is probably the one page out of this editorial that I don't like, mostly because of the stiff pose. I do, however, love the turban, earrings and bangles!

Photobucket
This is a much better pose!

I think this editorial and I will have a beautiful friendship!

  1. This must be the most re-blogged editorial I've ever seen!
    The colors and the setting (not to mention the photographer's skills) are awesome!!!
    It makes you want to try a turban...hmmm

  2. Tanvi: fierce is DEFINITELY the word I'd use to describe this photoshoot! Which I guess makes sense, because I love this editorial and, in life, I love anything/anyone fierce!
    Thanks for the comment! :)

  3. Anna: This may be the most re-blogged editorial you've ever seen, BUT did any of those bloggers put a video of an adorably dramatic lemur at the top? ;) (I'm obssessed with it!)
    I'm DEFINITELY going to be trying out turbans tomorrow, maybe with my hair down, I feel like it's easier to pull off! I wonder where to find scarves that are long enough... And so the search begins!
    Thanks for the comment! :)
