I rarely share editorials on my blog because I think it's a lazy blogger's way to blogging. I mean sharing editorials photos is just like plucking the photos off from another online source and then reblogging it onto your own site - same with sharing streetstyle photos.
But this one was just too good to pass up - the styling felt effortless although there were so many difficult pieces to style such as the couture-like dresses...but it all came together very well and natural. The colors blended into the outdoors background extremely well, sometimes complementing it and sometimes contrasting with it. Even in shots of semi-nudity, it felt natural and unlike some other editorials whereby it looked like the stylist just had to expose a boob or two.
I especially love the photography as well - the lighting is simply amazing as observed from the shadows they throw out and how it hits the models. I love how the photographer captures the portrait shots of the models, making them seem exposed to heighten the intimacy of it. Overall a beautiful series of editorials with a good mix of color, sepia and B&W shots.
