Kiss from the Matador



















































Bianca Balti by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Nippon March 2012
Styled by Anna Dello Russo

Well... Not many positive reviews for this editorial but I am loving this! One of the best styled pieces by ADR, one of the best shoots featuring Bianca too.
I have recently been really obsessed with this Spanish style. The whole idea of a Spanish woman, who is always uber chic and mixes classic garments with modern ones while always staying true and being proud of her culture is just incredible. And for the first time, I actually could picture a celebrity in the model's place in this editorial. Not just any celeb though, but Penelope Cruz of course. How perfect would that be...

Speaking on celebrities.... I am not even going to do a SAG Awards post due to great disappointment in our Hollywood ladies. The best dressed goes to Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Haute Couture, but even that was not quite hitting the spot. Anyone else feel the same way?  xx

  12. I love the totality of the editorial, beautiful pics and a great atmosphere. But maybe bad comment because it's not all that wearable? I think these pictures are beautiful, but when put in a regular surrounding some of them might come of as slightly trashy.

  16. There has been so much talk about the SAG awards that I'm so over it... but, Zoe always seems to look BEAUTIFUL in whatever she wears.. like, she could wear a freaking sac and still look gorgeous in it.. ahaha okay maybe i am over exaggerating here but, seriously? she's gorgeous!....

    And, as far as this editorial goes... WHY WOULD ANYONE GIVE IT A BAD REVIEW??????? You should have seen my mouth drop as I scrolled through the pictures.. okay, maybe because I'm an amateur but, these shots are so strong.. so expressive... it's unbelievable that anyone wouldn't find it all intriguingly beautiful... anyway, thank you for sharing... OH AND THAT HAIRRRRRR.. THE BRAID PYRAMID? wow... this stylist really put some WORK IN.. love it.

  27. Is this Jaslene from America's Next Top Model? Certainly looks like it. If it is good for her, this spread is STUNNING!!! And yup, I've stopped watching the red carpets and the award shows because to have all that money and stylists, these Hollywood women make some shockingly atrocious choices!
