Old school siren

The va-va-voom lingerie photo feature (with a very blunt title) published in Spanish Vogue in June 2010 puts Brazilian alluring beauty Adriana Lima in a very retro and dramatic light. This enticing photoshoot signed by fashion photographer Vincent Peters brings to mind glamorous screen divas of the 50s, brunette bombshells like Sophia Loren, Gina Lolobrigida and Ava Gardner. And since only an alpha male could stand next to a femme fatale, Adriana's husband, basketball hero Marko Jaric joins her in the shoot.

Alice in Fashionland

"Lewis Carroll dressed her as an innocent in satin and ribbons. Disney made her flaxen haired and saucer eyed. In the pages of Vogue the land of merry unbirthdays and late running rabbits shimmers to life again - as the world's most influential designers dress the original little girl lost in their own visions.
This is the description of an outstanding Annie Leibovitz signed fashion editorial starring supermodel Natalia Vodianova.
Leibovitz - Lewis Carroll
Enjoy the only pictures you'll ever see with designer Olivier Theyskens as writer Lewis Caroll, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren as goofy characters Tweedledum&Tweedledee, as well as a pre-fitness-mania Marc Jacobs as the Caterpillar or the megalomaniac John Galliano as the Queen of Hearts (no, wait, we usually see him as such). I'll leave you to recognize the rest of the cast.

White Dreams

British model and actress Lily Cole is one of those rare beauties that you can easily obsess about. By overemphasize her ethereal features (porcelain skin, red hair and doll-like features) photographer Sølve Sundsbø creates an alienesque, manga looking character, innocent and yet incredible sensual.

The surreal mood of this 2005 photoshoot is set off by milky white surroundings that look like a futuristic mix of Alice in Wonderland and One Thousand and One Nights.
Norwegian fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø is known for his cutting-edge work including beautifully crafted (digitally or manually edited) dreamscapes. His unique brand of artistic photography blurs the boundaries of fashion, portrait, landscape and computer-generated animation.

Vague Emotions

Fashion photography, the most glamorous form of art, ceased a long time ago to be just a dull, empty form of presentation due to cutting edge culture magazines and talented artists.

Photographer Craig McDean, well-known for his striking fashion imagery used an "error" technique - involving blurry, unfocused images - that brings a dramatic vibe to "Emotions", a fashion editorial featured in the October issue of W-Magazine.

Once Upon A Time

The mannish trend seen through vintage reference inspired this fashion editorial featured in the May 2006 issue of Elle Magazine (Romania). Using sepia tones, these lyric images send us back in time to 1930's, while menswear classics highlight the beauty of the woman. The fashion editor prompts us to hunt through our grandfathers' wardrobes for today's trendiest pieces: suspenders wide-leg trousers, a cotton undershirt or a pair of oxfords/jazz shoes.

I would love to see more exuberant fashion editorials like this one in men style magazines. You can really tell that fashion has become men's playground too.
