Is A Photo Shoot Ever Just A Photo Shoot?
Aren’t these pictures gorgeous? I had to share. They are my favorite selects from Monday’s WWD supplement feature story. I love red rock country -- the scenery there is simply captivating (if you’ve never been, you gotta go), this model is no-brainer beautiful and the art direction for this shoot is on point. I also dig the bold jewelry used for this story, most of which was from Barbara Flood’s Closet. In case you’re wondering why the actual clothes are sorta blah, Monday is intimate apparel day at WWD so the focus here is lingerie/innerwear.
How many like stories can we expect since Italian Vogue’s Black issue? I honestly don’t know if that is what prompted this 12 page feature (FYI: 12 pages is huge for mags, much less a trade supplement.) but it sorta makes me go hmmmm. And if the Italian Vogue issue was indeed the catalyst for this and the other similar stories that are sure to follow in coming months from mainstream mags, should we care? Will this kinda thing even be an issue (either way) two seasons from now? Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.
I have made my opinion pretty clear in previous posts but I'm curious of what others think on the matter. And for those who might be feeling that there are bigger issues "we" need to concern ourselves with, I might agree with you but I also suggest reading this. Positive self-image is pretty darn important.
