High Gloss Glam At L’Officiel Ukraine July 2012

Things are really heating up

Over at L’Officiel Ukraine this month,

with some high gloss metallic glam.

Photographer Kevin Sinclair not only shot this story,

but styled it too.

Model Diana Farkhullina dons metallic swimwear

from the likes of Lanvin, Joomi Lim,  

Oscar De La Renta and Nina Ricci

and wears metallic eyemakeup, bronzey-bronzed cheeks

and a high gloss mouth,

offsetting some gleaming accessories.

Steamy, sexy, hot for summer.

Marcelina Sowa for Harpers Bazaar Mexico

In this crazy desert heat (115F/46C today)

you want to live your life in white.

Crisp, cool, summer white.

Harpers Bazaar Mexico took a trip to Vietnam

for their July 2012 issue

to an exotic local with a pseudo desert feel, called Mui Ne.

Photographer Kevin Sinclair captured images of model

Marcelina Sowa at the “Fairy Stream

in a series of whites, styled by Andrew Holden.

Fashions from Alexander McQueen, Etro, Louis Vuitton, Giambattista Valli,

Hermes, Chanel, Kenzo and Moschino amongst others,

transpose a simple white theme to an otherwordly white magic,

made more ethereal by the stick straight hair Dennis Fei created,

and a brow-less, at times demonic looking 

completely fabulous makeup

by Nam Vo.

Shakes things up a bit don’t you think?

Marcelina Sowa for Grazie UK

Back to the desert again,

this time into the searing white hot sun

of the Vietnamese desert

for Grazie UK May 2012.

Polish model Marcelina Sowa

looks like a desert gypsy queen 

as she rules the sands in giant jewels, 

and a black, white and gold palette

from designers including Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, 

Moschino, Roberto Cavalli, 

Dolce and Gabbana and Valentino

as styled by Andrew Holden.

Nam Vo creates a dramatic Beyond Thunderdome-esque makeup

which pairs beautifully with Dennis Fei’s windblown locks.
