      For example: replace lipstick/knife with pipe/lighter. This single shift in the penultimate photo could have added the needed other layer for interpretation. As elsewhere the obstacle is not puritanism. The problem is that convention dictates interesting topics be overstated. Fashion rarely respects itself.

    Wow! I know this is a concept done many times over in editorials, but this is just sheer beauty! I love how her face/position is diferent in every picture.
    The clothing and jewelry looks so luxurious and glamourous!

    the knife and lipstick scene is taken from YSL mascara ad, which i think is better: Loving this editorial though.

    I don’t really think that I agree that the knife and lipstick is from a YSL ad. I think it looks like this image alot more, just in a softer context
    Now while I love being able to see editorials now now now… I really would like them alot more if we had credits :( anyone? Well besides the obvious Miu Miu and Prada

    It is very pretty, especially the styling in the mix of textures and colours, but I’m a little tired of the Stepford wife concept, to be honest.

    I wish people would stop trying to compare to other shoots. These are great images on their own!

      The only way to evaluate something is to compare it to something else… Otherwise you have no point of reference
