    love the movement and colour in all the photos.

    and yes i agree, the choreographer does outshine Raquel. they really should have worked on her posture, then it would have been perfect.

    Looove the concept and the choreographer is great! The movement of the dresses is beautiful, but only a few photos really shine for me.

    This was a great concept, but it lacks all of the charm and grace of the original Fred & Ginger. Beautiful movement and dynamism in the fabrics of the dresses, but Raquel’s modeling/posture starts to bring down the whole shoot for me. It’s not horrible, but I’m just saying that some of the photos don’t seem to work (they fall into a grey medium between attempting to portray dancers’ stage presence/movement/grace and maintaining the necessary drama of an editorial). The original Fred & Ginger dynamic was not one of a teacher and student; they were such an equally vivacious, charming, and talented duo. I’m just slightly disappointed, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers deserve a proper homage.

    The penultimate shot is to die for. But Galloway really is the star of this shoot. The styling is doing most of Raquel’s work for her. I think there are other girls more adept at movement (Coco Rocha, perhaps?) that could have elevated this from beautiful to downright electric.

    the movement is great but it’s not working for me with Racquel, I think they should have used Coco Rocha or Karlie Kloss who are great at moving elegantly.
