Fire in the sky, flames in the deep

April 19, 2013

There’s seemingly no end to the beauty that can be created when fashion dives into the depths, literally. Sometimes creating a breathtaking underwater shoot comes down to brilliant makeup that shines through the weight of the water, sometimes the wow factor is aided by reflections and ripples and waves. The only thing that you might say is mandatory is a wardrobe of flowing gowns and diaphanous fabrics that shape-shift into ethereal forms when they enter the aqueous depths. After all: why opt for body-conscious cuts when you have the opportunity to create images like these?
And by ‘these’ I’m referring to the images of Michael David Adams’ ( magical underwater world, where fire withstands submergence – because there’s no putting out the flames that are model Cecile’s hair. Where water isn’t blue, but a blackened sky against which Cecile is both burning sun and pale white moon. Where bubbles are a sprinkling of stars.
Beautiful to behold, and with makeup by Mary Irwin that compliments the red of Cecile’s hair
