    The shot with the black and white turtle neck is pretty awesome.

    i have already seen this concept in the shoot with Mariacarla Boscono, maybe a month and a half ago…

    but that still doesn’t take anything away from how amazing this one is!

    mmm I really enjoy this! However, it is interesting what happens when you put a dancer and a model together… Although the shots of them together are great, I think Valeria is most striking in the photographs by herself, because I don’t find my self subconsciously critiquing her posture in contrast to Merih’s (as a dancer my self) and I am not distracted by the contrast between the theatric nature of Merih compared with Valeria. Although it works better in some shots than others, (eg. I absolutely love the preview shot for this post), I guess what I am saying is I don’t think the combination brings out the very best in Valeria although she is absolutely gorgeous.
