Candice Swanepoel by Daniel Jackson for Prabal Gurung SS12 Campaign

Yes this is actually happening...
Could it be that this is the best campaign season... Ever?
An amazingly fabulous model, with an amazingly fabulous photographer, in the amazingly fabulous Prabal Gurung SS12 collection, posing in an amazingly fabulous way. And I am one very happy lady. xx

Surreal or Real?











































Laura Kampman by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia February 2012

An idea and concept I am loving, done in a very Vogue Italia fashion. xx

Hot Ticket


















































Gisele Bundchen by Gilles Bensimon for Elle US May 2000

Perfection, in a very tall and slim Brazilian sort of way.

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

Ana Beatriz Barros by Lee Broomfield for Elle UK March 2012
Styled by Natalie Wansbrough-Jones

The hauntingly beautiful side to that sporty chic trend we have been blessed with this season.
I can't get enough of this metallic, sparkly, urban cool styling. xx

Jessica Stam by Victor Demarchelier for Harper's Bazaar Australia March 2012

Ok, I promise this is the last editorial I will post from this issue... But I think you can see from these last three posts that the March 2012 issue of HB Australia is phenomenal. Very on trend, with the water/mermaid inspiration and very deep and beautiful with the story editorial featuring a HBA favorite, Marloes Horst.
This editorial is just the sweet cherry on top, featuring the most girly looks of the season on a very girly (looking) Jessica Stam, who looks exceptionally amazing in those Prada bodysuit type pieces.

If you are looking for inspiration - check this issue out! Even the smaller photos next to the articles are gorgeous....
Wishing everyone a great weekend! xx

Marloes Horst by Will Davidson for Harper's Bazaar Australia March 2012

Ladies and gentleman, THIS is how a story editorial featuring a man and woman should be done. The nature, the clothes, the movement. It's as though I can feel the warm breeze too.

As some of you may have noticed, in the previous post (under this one) I made the horrible error of marking a Harper's Bazaar editorial as one from Vogue and this actually did happen due to a tiny mistake made when copying the information of the editorial. So, for today I would love to know how YOU save your editorials and their information (model, photographer, stylist, issue...)? Anything to avoid this embarrassing mistake in the future!
