There’s something so empowering, so refreshing and so compelling about an editorial that chooses to highlight femininity by merely focusing on the ethereal and the lady-like of elements that it instantly gains a dreamlike quality. No more reading between the lines, no need of antagonistic juxtapositions, as delicacy, warmth and lightness work in further carrying a message that once got lost in translation.
Joanna Kustra evoked the sublime beauty in a photo shoot that gave new meanings to modern femininity. Personifying the muses, Marie H and Marijn got to experience a delicate make-over fit for a perfectly memorable day. Dressed to impress in dainty lace dresses, heavily embellished garments and sheer, floaty frocks selected by stylist Ewa Michalik, the models seemed rather pulled out straight of a fantasy.
Textured side braids, perfectly slick wet hair styles and the flawless glossy curls envisioned by Kasia Fortuna, complemented the delicate eye-shadows, the bold cat-eyes and the glossy lips created by Erica Schlegel.
