She don’t need love… but she’s going to get it

Anna-Christina Schwartz has the air of someone strong, sexy, independent… desirable and desired, wanted but not left wanting. She’s the woman who may have been scorned, but picks herself right back up, leaving her ex-love to regret that he ever let her go. If that sense wasn’t already perfectly conveyed by Mohamed Gaff’s strong and high contrast black and white photography and Lida Lund’s sumptuous…

Free People ‘Sidewalk Safari’ May ’13 look book

Free People are awfully good at theming each of their collections, without ever leaving their boho aesthetic behind. Sometimes this can result in new thematic hybrids: boho-romance, boho-grunge, boho-safari. The latter is their latest may look book starring Aline Weber, merging the on-trend themes of the neo-bohemian and the desert queen.

Photographer Pawel Grabowski calls it a mix of posh and shopping: the kind a superstar might do with their misused personal assistant in tow. Here model Klaudia Kozik plays the posh shopper, Sebastian Ciesielski…

The edge of beauty: Conchi by Anna Ciupryk

Nothing would have worked better in highlighting Conchi Monge’s classic features than the raw styling, the messy hair-do and the edgy black and white concept proposed by photographer Anna Ciupryk. Possessor of a poignant glare intensified by the kohl smudged smokey eyes and exuding sex-appeal through every single inch of her body, Conchi is most definitely not your regular dark haired beauty.

Ways to wear red: street style gallery

Scarlett Johansson covers Marie Claire US

Scarlett Johansson is the face of the Marie Claire US May 2013 edition, featuring on not one but two different covers for the issue. The styling of the covers plays perfectly to Johnasson’s bombshell looks and persona: on one she wears a red lace dress paired with red lipstick, on the other a black and red floral dress that hugs the figure. Both dresses are…
