Sometimes absolute glamour doesn’t find itself in the sparkling facets of a thousand diamonds, or the billowing sweep of a dramatic floor-length gown. Sometimes it appears in less obvious ways: in clean cuts and perfect tailoring, in a crisp white shift dress or a supple leather short-suit; in a perfect cascade of waved hair and impeccably applied wine-red lipstick.

Valentina, a shoot from the new issue of FASHIONTREND Australia magazine, is a foray into that type of glamour. Elaine Marshall’s styling puts equal emphasis on clothing pieces and accessories, statements bouncing off eachother to create harmonious looks and masculine accents coming into play alongside feminine ones.
