Hot summer: exploiting the alluring side of glamour

There are certain classical elements that can be used to give an image, or a person, an infinite amount of glamour. This fashion shoot captured by Dimitri Burtsev seems to perfectly harness and implement each of these elements. Model, Darina Kluckova, is made up with lucid red lips, dark smoking eyes, bouncing blonde curls (as done by Rosella Rainbow) and towering black heels. With each different look she is clad in the classic colour of black, the modern swimsuits all have their own unique look and style, but each is black, continuing the theme of elegance throughout each portrait.

Kluckova is accessorised in opulent jewels; golden chunky bracelets, oversized sunglasses and of course, the black colonialist hat, all add to her desperately stylish and lavish appearance.

Burtsev makes perfect use of contrasting colour (nightly black placed against a background of iridescent blue and natural brown) and of natural bright light. This fashion shoot oozes a particular glamour throughout, and Kluckova is the perfect dazzling beauty.
