Editorial of the Moment: Numero #121- Duo’s Fleur De Lys (NSFW)

May 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

Every month, as magazines display their current issues, I look for photos from fashion/beauty editorials that I save on my hard drive as inspiration. One editorial that has been on my mind lately is from the March 2011 issue of Numero #121. The editorial, entitled “Duo’s Fleur de Lys”, features the lovely Polish model Magdalena Frackowiak, shot by Sean & Seng.

Many magazines are doing editorials that focus on Gothic or dark themes, and it becomes a bit redundant; coming across this editorial was so refreshing. The two factors that sticks out to me the most are: the photography, and the styling.

The photographer’s choice in lighting is beautiful; the shadows cast on the model are at all the right angles, making her body seem even more sculpted and defined. The lighting also frames her face well, highlighting her razor-sharp cheekbones and feline eyes. I like the styling because it is simple yet effective; chains and bright colors aren’t necessary in this shoot.

The clothing is right out of the ’50s, with its delicately creamy tones, high-waisted bottoms and boudoir-ready bras. The gold pearl earrings, slick pompadour, and wine-stained lips top of the classy & sultry look. The touches of nudity aren’t offensive or gauche, which I appreciate. The peek-a-boo effect of a bare bum and bare breasts amplify the theme of this editorial: the ideal elegant woman.
