Fashion Faves – Samantha Gradoville

A second look at Samantha Gradoville for these occasional fashion favourite posts, this time in a shoot by Andrew Yee for How To Spend It magazine, via Fashion Gone Rogue. Now, I like retro styling but it’s typically late 60s and early 70s fashion that appeals to me most. The 50s, though, does have some appeal and it’s the 50s that features in this set. This is an interesting shot in that it brings in an element of...

Fashion Faves – Ranya Mordanova

A model and a photographer, neither of whom I’ve heard of before – which isn’t difficult as I’m not quite the holder of boundless knowledge I sometimes make myself out to be – and a very nice photoshoot indeed courtesy of ru_glamour. The photographer is Yossi Michaeli and the model is Ranya Mordanova. Let’s take a look at some of the photos. I know exactly what you’re thinking when you look at...

Fashion Faves – Juju Ivanyuk

I must confess to not having heard of Ukrainian model Yuliya “Juju” Ivanyuk before but if there are two things that are guaranteed to grab my attention then those would be a great-looking photoshoot and sharing a nickname with something more typically attributed with West African witchcraft. Handy tip for up-and-coming models looking to catch my eye (there might be some; you don’t know for certain):...

Fashion Faves – Dajana Antic

Via Fashion Gone Rogue comes this absolutely lovely shoot by Richard Bernardin of Canadian model Dajana Antic. And it’s pretty obvious why this shoot appeals to me; it’s that love of the vintage look I’ve got for some reason. A lot of this comes from Sabrina Rinaldi’s styling but Bernardin has sealed the deal with the harsh, narrow, flash lighting in the shots. The shadows are wonderful and the harshness gives...

Fashion Faves – Samantha Gradoville

Photographed by Thomas Cooksey for Vogue Latin America comes this selection of photos of Samantha Gradoville via Fashion Gone Rogue, all chosen because they showcase different uses of lines in the photography to bring out the beauty of the model and the styling. Samantha and her swimsuit are showing off some lovely curves here but it’s nicely framed to form a diagonal line through the picture. Good use of sticking two fingers up...

Fashion Faves – Nika Lauraitis

Via Fashion Gone Rogue is this single photo from a shoot of Nika Lauraitis by Zoltan Tombor for Grazia Italia. There’s not a lot to say about this shot that shouldn’t be obvious from the photo itself; it’s a lovely outfit and shoes too, of course, but it’s the attention to detail in matching the colours with the brightly-coloured road markings that helps this stand out. The lipstick even matches the purse; very...
