How many layers of killing me
can you have in one editorial???
Lori Goldstein’s styling on this shoot for
Vogue Japan May 2012
is beyond genius.
The familiar theme of mermaid getting all beachy
is taken to a whole new level
with giant accessories
and extreme wardrobe,
from designers including
Stella McCartney, Oscar De La Renta,
Kara Ross, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci,
Paco Rabanne, Balenciaga,
and Aurelie Bidermann,
as well as a massive dose
of crazy brilliant flair.
Shot with aching beauty by Patrick Demarchelier
model Saskia De Brauw gives us
attitude teamed with moody nonchalance
on the high fashion version
of a Mermaid’s Holiday
