Spell Bound

This is one enchanted editorial with mesmerizing pictures of mysterious and killer lady-like looks on a softly lit gradation-like background that will pierce through your heart and will leave you spell bound. 


The horizontal cut-out detail with feathered and ruffled bands running parallel to each other, combined with the delicate lady-like mermaid silhouette on the first gown by Gaultier is beyond gorgeous!!  I love the nude / pale colors with a hint of pink, tone on tone beading on the Givenchy one and all the texture mix on the rest of the gowns. The texture mix, made up of lace and sheer flowy fabrics on Versace and Valentino gowns is so feminine and sexy but in a very classy and elegant way. The dramatic big hair, pinky nude lips, sexy lady like silhouettes  and smoky eyes add a lot of drama and interest for a “femme fatale” vibe which makes up for a killer editorial. This editorial is truly “One of a Kind” like the way W magazines calls it!
