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...

Fashion Faves – Kate Moss

A Latin American feel to this photoshoot featuring Kate Moss as photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue Paris. I’ve been thinking of getting a hat for a long time and thanks to this photo of Kate I can now add this particular style of headwear to my Oh Dear Lord No! list. I have a big enough head as it is without drawing more attention to it. So that’s what happened to my parents’ old, green, leather sofa. I loved...

The Art Of The Self Shot

Browse the web long enough – about six minutes should do the job – and you’ll stumble upon a self-photograph taken by a partially-dressed, young girl in a room in her house. Well, you do if you browse the sites I browse. I don’t know why young girls feel the need to strip naked or as near-nude as makes no difference but it’s clear that there’s either peer pressure or herd instinct at play here. As...

Fashion Faves – Miscellaneous

A bit of a change in the occasional series of “fashion favourites” posts I do where I’m going to select a miscellaneous set of photos showcasing style instead of a series from a single shoot or model as I’ve done in the past. Why’s that? you ask. None of your damned business! No, sorry, that’s rude of me. The real answer is that this is my site and I’ll do what I like. Admittedly, that’s...

Fashion Faves – Cara Delevingne

Via Fashiontography is this somewhat eclectic shoot by Mikael Jansson of London-born model Cara Delevingne (no, I’ve no idea how you pronounce her surname either) for W magazine. Lovely understated elegance demonstrated here in this shot of Cara in a Bottega Venata dress; great tones and relatively low contrast in this image impart an old sense of warmth and style. More importantly, we also get a great demonstration on how not...
