  1. 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.

  3. Wow, this is a new Zimmermann. I’m very into it. Sort of agree with above comments thoough I guess I take it more as him being dance teacher her being student.

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

  9. 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.

  11. 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.
