The epitome of ethereal beauty

May 3, 2013

There’s something so empowering, so refreshing and so compelling about an editorial that chooses to highlight femininity by merely focusing on the ethereal and the lady-like of elements that it instantly gains a dreamlike quality. No more reading between the lines, no need of antagonistic juxtapositions, as delicacy, warmth and lightness work in further carrying a message that once got lost in translation.

Joanna Kustra evoked the sublime beauty in a photo shoot that gave new meanings to modern femininity. Personifying the muses, Marie H and Marijn got to experience a delicate make-over fit for a perfectly memorable day. Dressed to impress in dainty lace dresses, heavily embellished garments and sheer, floaty frocks selected by stylist Ewa Michalik, the models seemed rather pulled out straight of a fantasy.

Textured side braids, perfectly slick wet hair styles and the flawless glossy curls envisioned by Kasia Fortuna, complemented the delicate eye-shadows, the bold cat-eyes and the glossy lips created by Erica Schlegel.
