If you’re going to hit upon a theme for a shoot that involves the most luxurious, most opulent pieces of the season – the kind that probably aren’t everyday purchases for most – you might as well go all out. It’s part of the fantasy of that caliber of piece: put it in the right context, and it doesn’t matter if you’re likely to buy it or not. It’s art. Chris Nicholls’ shoot Your Majesty does that brilliantly. A celebration of the Royal opulence that wove its way through the fall 2011 season, each image comes to life in the backdrops, the props, the medieval armour and fairytale forests.
Beautiful to view, and inspiring for how to style a look that calls to mind the Queens and warrior women usually only found in the gilt-edged pages of fairytales, you can view the full shoot at the gallery above.
It’s from the December 2011 issue of Flare Magazine.
