This has to be one of my favorite fashion editorials yet! Shot by talented photographer Ellen von Unwerth, posed by the amazing Anja Rubik for Vogue Italia – April 2009, this editorial is chock-full of raw attitude, passion and mystery. The styling is beyond amazing, really. There’s something to be said about the amount of color added to the spread. Pops of color have been strategically placed throughout the editorial to give the viewer a sense of glamour and excitement. Whereas the black and white shots are styled with a sense of class and suspense! She’s the female 007. She’s classy, mysterious and a rebel..not easily intimated and not the kind of lady you want to upset. I really like the juxtaposition of the cover. The white of her ‘jammies’ show a sense of innocence, while the cigarette and tattoo on her wrist tell a different story.Brilliant! The following shot is one of my favorites from the spread because well, we all dress like that when going to the gym, no? Why not though? It’s fun, playful and the lame leggings are guaranteed to make you sweat! Let’s get physical, shall we?! (sorry, I couldn’t help it!) Notice the leggings from American Apparel, a brand that we’re all familiar with, making this look much a more accessible one!
