Sombra Aqui



















































Natasha Poly by Maciek Kobielski for Vogue Spain November 2011

The other day, I had walked by my favorite Tel Aviv based international magazine stand with this issue on my mind. I asked the woman working at the stand if they had "the November issue of Vogue Spain" and she goes "Oh, you mean The Poly Issue?".
Yes, if you haven't noticed, the November issue of Vogue Spain is all about the gorgeous Natasha Poly.
Poly is a contributor, as well as cover model. She continues to star in every single editorial, and let the magazine in for exclusive coverage of her beautiful dream wedding & honeymoon.

I have been wanting to cover this issue for a long time.
The fact that there is one model dominating is actually incredible, this idea is such a good one. We love models, and what's better than having a magazine issue all about one, especially about one we simply adore (Though I should mention, even if this were a magazine all about a model I did not love too much, I still would love this idea).

My favorite photos of Natasha in this magazine are the shots from her wedding. Not only am I a sucker for gorgeous weddings, but I don't ever recall seeing a bride with such a fantastic glow. I also don't recall editors, designers, and tons of models dancing under the moonlight in such a carelessly fun way. Maybe it's because everyone is simply so photogenic, but the wedding actually looked picture perfect because of the people that were there.

I did decide on posting this beauty editorial in the end, only because I feel like this is the first high fashion beauty editorial I have seen in what feels like forever. I also think it is the perfect way to sum up this issue, seeing how Natasha looks different in every photo is what really made her the amazing supermodel that she is in the first place.
And well, the orange and black tones really do remind me that today is Halloween.
Have a good one everybody, and to anyone who has a second to stop by their nearest bookstore or magazine stand - give this issue a shot, I know there is something in it for everyone. xx

Haute Couture



















































Raquel Zimmermann by Inez + Vinoodh for Vogue Paris November 2011
Styled by Emmanuelle Alt

This editorial first made me think of Halloween with the way everything is just so exaggerated and over-the-top, and the way the photography, Raquel's expression, hair, makeup, accessories all come together making a look fit enough to be worn to a ultra fashionable Halloween party.
Though I must say, I am scared saying this because usually when calling a look or garment 'Halloween' or 'costume' it is an insult (unless that was the direct intention of the designer). I know that here these garments were not made to be costumes, in fact they are some of the season's most beautiful high fashion looks, but I think the fact that they were transformed into becoming high fashion Halloween looks in this editorial is incredible, and so fitting as tomorrow is the big day.
Sadly, I am not celebrating this year. Living in a country that doesn't celebrate Halloween actually sucks.
I hope you all have a happy & safe one -- sooooo looking forward to seeing your costumes, and while you're at it, let me know how you will be dressing up this year! xx

Étoilé



















































Anna Selezneva by Karim Sadli for Isabel Marant Étoilé Spring 2011

This is everything I wish I were wearing and more. I wish I had every single piece from this collection in my closet right now. It's crazy how addicting Marant's clothes are, so wearable, comfortable, chic and fashion forward.

We Call It Glamour

Constance Jablonski & Eniko Mihalik by Alex Cayley for Vogue Nippon December 2011
Styled by Giovanna Battaglia

OK. First let me point out that these are from a December issue, as in this year is pretty much over. Already. I feel like I have to write this in every post with an edi from a December issue, but it simply blows me away how the years just pass by in a heartbeat.
Well, with Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner what could be better than some fun, colorful FW style and who would do a 'glamazon in the city' editorial better than Japanese Vogue?

I will admit, I actually did believe that my first look into a Vogue Nippon would be all about Harajuku and Geisha styles... But from the first moment I actually did finally find an issue at a New York bookstore I fell in true love with the covers, layouts, editorials, and most of all - the styling. Vogue Nippon takes that stereotype of Japanese dress and says ' No. The ultimate Japanese Vogue woman is one of the most glamorous and all around fashion forward woman in the world!' and really, these photos are living proof.
