‘Little Miss Sunshine’ | EXCLUSIVE | Margot Sunshine By Marco Michieletto For The Libertine Magazine | The Fall Flight 2013

The Libertine Magazine. Little Miss Sunshine' Margot Sunshine By March Michialetto for The Libertine Magazine. The Fall flight. 2013.81

Italian artisanal finesse takes it’s inspiration from photographer Marco Michieletto; who returns to The Libertine for yet another beautiful feature in our Fall Flight series. His latest editorial, entitled ‘Little Miss Sunshine’, features flaxen-haired, international sensation Margot Sunshine. Demure and delicate, Margot exposes a vulnerable innocence that seems to disarm, while neutralizing the exploitative, hyper-sexualized nature of nudity in our modern culture. Her sweet charisma…in all it’s glory…represents the sacred essence of the feminine form in an idyllic world where beauty is still sanctified. The editorial pays tribute to the light of the young girl that shines out through the eyes of every woman; tender, precious. Marco was able to capture in Margot, a quintessential example of this elusive purity; most often seen, only when all the walls come down. Enjoy!

The Libertine Magazine. 'Velvet Underground'. Margharita By Pino Leone For The Libertine Magazine. The Fall Flight 2013.  Cover. 8

‘Velvet Underground’ is a sensual masterpiece that comes to you from the recess of brilliant mind, Pino Leone. Silky smooth skin, voluptuous curves and tumbles of cascading hair, flow together like water to create dynamic movement throughout the images. Perhaps the most dramatic and striking quality of the editorial, is the grace and frank confidence with which the muse intimates the sacred splendor of her beauty. Model Margherita Cesarano stars as the captivating temptress, exploring the delicious sensations provided by embracing the freedom of her own skin. Her natural allure was amplified by makeup artist Giordana Hassan; who chose to simply underline the sumptuousness that already existed, rather than cover it up with heavy styling…

Set against the backdrop of a clean white studio, the editorial is truly an homage to the subtle power of feminine beauty. As the newest installment in The Libertine’s Fall Flight series, ‘Velvet Underground’ represents both the polished standard of mastery and the boundless scope of creativity that’s become obligate for all of our publications. Enjoy!

As much as a dramatic location can set the stage for a stunning editorial, sometimes shooting in the studio is a more complementary frame for both the model and the wardrobe. ‘Baby Blues’, shot for the Libertine by photographer Willy Ward, is just such a story. Featuring rising star Britt Nicholas, the editorial’s palette of deep blues beautifully contrasts with the models natural warmth. Britt’s easy energy gives the shoot a clean and cool feel that finds its perfect marriage in the denim ensembles compiled by stylist Ellen Purtill. Her casual outfits are offset by the feminine hair and beauty stylings of artist Jaclyn Hnitko.

‘Heartbreak Hotel’ | EXCLUSIVE | Jessica Sikosek By Akila Berjaoui For The Libertine Magazine | The Fall Flight | October 2013

 The Libertine Magazine. 'Heartbrake Hotel' . EXCLUSIVE. Jessica Sikosek By Akila Berjaoui For The Libertine Magazine.The Fall Flight .October 2013. 997

As The Libertine transitions into the amber cast afternoons of autumn, we enthusiastically unveil the highly anticipated collection of stories that compose our second exclusive series here on The Zine: The Fall Flight. For the first installment in the series, The Libertine is honored to bring you another collaboration with one of our favorite lens masters, Akila Berjaoui.

Since foundation of The Libertine in 2009, Akila‘s work has been a constant source of inspiration and motivation in developing our own publication! The freedom, feminine idolatry and sensual revelry communicated through out her work, embodies our sybaritic philosophy here at The Libertine.

For our latest story, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, Akila‘s Casting Director, Simone Hush, designated Libertine favorite, Jessica Sikosek, to portray the jilted bride that finds respite for her broken heart on the glistening beaches of the Italian Riviera. Adorned in edgy yet feminine looks created by stylist Amy Bannerman, Jess is every bit the ‘jilted bride’ turned ‘blissed out babe on the rebound’. Amy’s sultry vision was tangibly enhanced by the accompanying hair/beauty looks; expertly envisioned and executed by beauty pro, Helena Lyons. For the finishing touches on the editorial, the fabulous Madeline Carroll designed the illustrations for our cover; fierce and fresh!

As she always does, Akila formed a playful bond of friendship with her subject; allowing a natural emergence of gaiety and beauty throughout the vivid images. It is the youthful aura and unapologetic sass to Akila‘s work, that has us so enchanted with her here at The Libertine. She somehow, never fails to see the extraordinary in the quotidian…and for that Ms. Berjaoui has our unending admiration and adulation.

Without further adieu, The Libertine kicks off our second exclusive online edition: The Fall Flight. Enjoy!
