Falling hard for pretty pastels

Pastels within themselves are an incredibly delicate group of colors, rather heavenly than sensual, particularly pretty and sweet, but not often enough imagined to look sexy or intense. That’s why they require a certain passion to go against their soft nature if the ultimate purpose is to turn them into an irresistible display. With Atif AbuSamra behind camera, pastels are finally allowed to spell out…

Heavy metals painting an ethereal portrait of beauty

They’re hard and dense, but also pure, hiding a mixture of colorful solids underneath a shiny and opaque surface, perhaps that’s why the result of heavy metals merging together feels almost surreal; like an otherworldly touch leaving copper, gold, bronze or silver metallic traces on an otherwise flawless skin. Borrowing Shazmin’s gorgeous features, every single one of the heavy metals is slowly being brought to…

Wind-blown beauty: Daphne Velghe

In my archive somewhere is a whole series of photos of Daphne Velghe, taken on this windy day in New York and deserving of being turned into an animated gif. In them the wind sweeps past, picking her dress up with it, Daphne clutching at the floral folds of fabric and leaning forwards in beaming guffaws. She had the lightening reaction time to save her…

Backyard beauty: that relaxed weekend mood

Capturing natural beauty seems like a job anyone can do, but in reality some people excel at it more than others. It takes an eye for knowing what to focus on and what to let slide into the background, for knowing how to style and to coax out exactly the right range of emotion. In speaking of natural beauty I direct your gaze to Jenna,…

A fairytale beauty look that works on the street

With an ultra-sensual collection inspired by classic Hollywood starlets, Art Nouveau design, and neo-Gothic architecture, the Zeynep Kartal show required something special by way of hair and makeup. A bouffant with a small braid along the crown giving the impression of a headband left wisps of fringe framing the face, while deep, dark red lips and a shimmer of white at the inner corner of…

Who needs makeup when you have hair: Svetlana Zakharova after Genny

Svetlana wasn’t particularly enthused about her makeup situation. She’d just scrubbed off the remains of the smokey, sparkly makeup from the Genny fall 2014 show, but she needn’t have worried: unlike mere mortals she still looked gorgeous without any makeup. Still, this was my favourite shot, her hiding her face with her hair and playing up for the camera. Because what’s a street style portrait…

Men’s street style: reporting from Milan

In the moments that I could draw my eyes away from the stylish men and razor-cheeked models for long enough to get out my camera, I had the covetable job of reporting on the street style from Milan menswear week. The purpose wasn’t just to inform men elsewhere in the world of what’s going on, but to inspire them; whether on how to accessorise an…

Classic black coat, purple hair: in Milan

Wearing all black is generally considered a sure-fire way to blend in (and to not attract the cameras of too many street style photographers) but there are plenty of ways to stand out even in a classic, vintage inspired combination of all-black-everything. Vibrant burgundy-purple hair is most definitely one of them.

Laced up: at Serkan Cura Couture

My camera could hardly keep up with my desire to capture the many incredible moments at Serkan Cura’s couture show this morning. This is just one shot of many, and in it you can glimpse the impressively laced corset from Cura’s spring 2014 collection, as well as the laced, wedged heels that mirror it. You can find a gallery of all the looks from Serkan…
