Hashtag SEXY: the selfie goes high fashion

Whether you’re an instagram addict, or you love to get lost between the pages of a good book instead, having little to do with social media, a selfie must still strike you as a highly-familiar term. The Oxford dictionary has named it their Word of the Year for 2013, Karlie Kloss and Candice Swanepoel seemed eager to teach you how to take selfies like a supermodel, and thanks to Igor Oussenko, the art of selfies is now ready to enter high-fashion territory, with results that are equal parts strikingly beautiful and decidedly relatable.

And perhaps we can’t all look as fabulous as Kath Pokrovskaya does while taking a sultry selfie, wearing nothing but a lacy bra and a pair of red hot lips, but we can at least get inspired by her cool attitude and flawless series of poses that covers hotel hallways, luxe bedrooms and cozy bathtubs with the same nonchalance. Straight out provocative, with little more than a few hints of bare skin in sight, the portraits aren’t short of glamour either, considering the exquisite floral and sheer garments styled by Evgenia Ilina.

Colorful stilettos, gorgeous make-up by Kate Kudrina, and hair by Yaroslav Olkov complement the luxurious feel of the editorial for Shon! that you can check out at the gallery.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
