Pretty Special

I stumbled on these gorgeous ed’s from Fashioncopious’ blog and was so overwhelmed by the prettiness that I just had to share. I am suddenly inspired to pick wildflowers and run through a field of wheat and poppies in a wispy dress of finest silk gauze.

Eye Candy Galore!

Filed under: Editorials,Fashion — shackedupatthechateau @ 4:38 pm

Some editorials have the power to catch our eye and remain planted in our memories. This can happen for many many different reasons. For me, personally I can be moved by the simple beauty of a sharply contoured face, a whimsical setting, and I have a particular penchant for hazy photography.  But most of the time I am drawn by the clothes. I like nothing more than to trawl through magazines (hard copy and online) and get inspiration for my own closet. Here are some images that inspire the way I dress myself on almost a daily basis. From this you can tell I practically live in skinny jeans, black leggings and tiny jean shorts teamed with loose fit t-shirts and yes, my hair is normally pulled back away from my face. I guess I would say my style is casual, tight/body conscious (I’m very thin and shaped like a pole so I play that up. My legs I would say are my main body feature so I expose them the way some women prefer to play up a large cleavage (which I don’t have). My clothes are not very colourful because I like black too much). What type of photographs are you drawn to most and why?

Mini Anden

I have followed the career of this beautiful, beautiful Swedish woman since from oh, the early 90’s and she has become more beautiful with age. I particularly love the contours of her face, the strong square set jaw, the tall forehead, the width of her face and those a-ma-zing eyes of blue. She has perfect symetry and wonderful bone structure. In the end it always comes down to the bones and underlying muscle, doesn’t it? I mean, it matters little how we fix our hair, apply makeup or what clothes we wear. Mini is now 31 years old and whilst her modelling career might be slowing down, her career as an actress is taking off. Good luck Mini. J’adore.

Here is Mini Anden in one of my all time favourite editorials with Tasha Tilberg. Le monde d`hermes s/s 2007.
