Dreaming West | Alyssa Miller By Jock Sturges For Marie Claire Italia | April 2009

Aaaaaa…This is my kind of shoot. I want to live in it. I linger over each image and fight the compulsion to slip out of  my shoes and clothes, tuck feathers into my hair and streak through the wind toward open plains and endless sky; scour cliffs and valleys, bath in the sea, and slumber amidst tall grass. Thank you to these artists who create journeys for my heart.

Polar Expedition

I find these images to be exceptionally beautiful. The sheer magnitude of the location is quite impressive to begin with. Then the sweeping colors bathe the terrific expanse, creating a majestic wonderland where understated fashion with meticulous detailing can simply overwhelm. I adore the billowing fabrics, the cascading hair, and hardly least of all… the innocence.

To Surf Or Not To Surf

This is the other old favorite that I referenced this morning. I think that for several years it’s been shoots like these, and my need for other people to see them/experience their power, that has nagged at the corners of my mind; sewing the seeds of a blog. I can remember so clearly how the pages of my Vogue wafted open to reveal the rich jewel tone of  this editorial. As if biting into an exquisite truffle, I forced myself to turn each image slowly, savoring the magical mood of a distant and exotic desert oasis; in awe of the flawless enchantress, worshiped by bronzed, gleaming Adonises.  Before my heart came to adore fashion, it loved fairytale… Well, this spread marked a significant marriage of the two for me.

False Idols

OH MY GOSH!!! This editorial makes me feel like a small child…Giddy and awe-struck all at once. I knew the moment I saw this girls face that she was meant for greatness, but I could never have envisioned such perfection as this. From one shot to the next, I could be heard proclaiming: yes…Yes…YES (as opposed to my regular: Yes!…oh, um….well, so-so…yikes….hm, nice…etc). From beginning to end, I am just blown away. The hair and make-up are sweet perfection, the poses are strong in the right places and soft in the right places, the wardrobe in is dream-like and ethereal, and the location…nothing short of a temple. Ok, I will stop gushing (on here that is…probably not in person). Give yourself 5 minutes today to be transported by this shoot. Take your time. Linger. This caliber of work rarely comes down the pipe…
