I had a bit of a de-tour there with the last two posts but I'll try to get back on track. I cut and pasted these few pages together in the winter of last year, just after ELLE released thier 25th anniversary issue (all 450 pages of it!) The shoot titled 'The word girl' is one of my all time favourites. Mainly because it is so classic and timeless. Coco Rocha is incredible in it. Her fluency and passion really encapture the meaning and history of each of the 25 key pieces. My favourite is the leather jacket. The way the photographer David Vasiljevic shot it really embodied the excitement and adreneline that the leather jacket really is. Below you can see a few examples of the shoot.
Then of course Lindsey Wixon pops up as the face of yet another campaign. She's pretty much the same age as me, its mental. The fashion industry are starting to use younger and younger faces. I think this is sad as she cant possibly have a normal life, i'm sure its glamourous and exciting but the pressure to stay skinny, always working and traveling must be exhausting. I mean look at this incredible picture of Elle Fanning, she's on her way to international fame and shes only 14! (I think this rant is probably about 30% jealously and 70% real frustration, actually make that 40% 60% ;) )
Blake Lively. Love Love Love Love. I don't feel I need to give explanation as to why. Just because xoxo
