We welcome back artist Adolfo Valente (this time taking aim at effervescent beauty, Teresa) as the newest contributor to our saucy Fall Flight series. In the past, Adolfo has captured the attention of our readership with his warm and glowing presentation of feminine beauty. He casts his subject beneath a sweet and guileless veil, punctuated with the captivating transformation from naive girlhood to the tender, blossoming buds of sensuality. The entrancing combination is both unique, and powerful; but manages to shine by excluding the pretense of over production. Teresa was the perfect choice to embody our tender charmer. She is both delicate and formidable without seeming heavy handed. The editorial on the whole, is a stunning success and reminds us of the classical genre created by legendary David Hamilton. Check out the other gorgeous images HERE. Enjoy!
For the exciting release of our new publication, the former team of discerning eyes over at The Libertine has been scouting far and wide for exceptional new talents. While Stefano Fabbri is new to us, he is no newcomer to the fashion or photography industries. We bring you his latest incredible editorial, ‘Birds of a Feather’, as the most recent addition to our issue #1 collection. The series stars models Katarina Nemcova, Larissa Mascarenhas, Masha Baziuk, and Nicola Minarikova; as they spend a day whimsically musing between layers of fresh, clean cotton. Join us in savoring these intimate portraits…which evoke the experience of falling in love with a beautiful woman…or 4.

“I choose to risk my significance…to live so that which came to me as seed, goes to the next as blossom…”(Dawna Markova). Our newest publication, ‘Seed To Blossom’, is an exclusive original from Slovakian photographer Natalia Horinkova. Living and working today in sunny Sydney, Natalia has been pursuing unique photography since she first picked up a camera in Dubai, years ago. In discussing her career, Natalia asserts “I love all pretty things, in any form; and I live to tell a wordless story with my editorials. I prefer natural light, but love playing and experimenting around the studio, while still developing my craft and style”. This series stars classic beauty, Vladimira O’Farrow (who is also a small screen natural, in the most recent Kid Cudi video) poses in striking, basic black pieces and vintage curls for a soft feminine appeal. With subtle makeup by artist Lubica Krajnakova and grooming by stylist Dominicc Mikulcak (@ Alterna), Vladimira is both enchanting and distinctive. The composition of these shots is sharp, clean and unusually ‘pretty’ for our often edgy collection…making it the perfect accentuation. Enjoy!
Photographer Kyle Deleu (assisted by Sharon Zobali) returns to The Libertine with another smokin’ exclusive. ‘We’ll Never Be Royals’ is a youthfully rebellious editorial, featuring fierce new face Britt Linn Vee. The looks were composed and styled by Nandi K. to complement the rock-and-roll grooming looks created by artist Pam Vanika. This series encourages experimentation with fashion as a mode of self expression. Britt takes no prisoners and makes no apologies, in this edgy new mix for our Fall Flight series. This season, it’s going to be all about making a statement…so dare to bare, or dare to tare…just DARE! Enjoy!
The Libertine has the tremendous pleasure of collaborating again with master photographer, Adolfo Valente on a new sensual masterpiece entitled ‘Comely, Tender’. The glowing and ethereal editorial depicts delicate Italian beauty, Daiana Di Finizio in the sweet bloom of life. Hazy, shadowed rooms and golden morning rays cast intrigue and subtle dreaminess to the portraiture. Her gaze echos throughout the series and lingers with you after. Reminiscent of the iconic beauty of Ali MacGraw, Daiana is purely enchanting. This is another memorable series, and a perfect compliment to our already heavy-hitting Fall Flight series!
It’s very exciting for us that these beautiful images will also be featured QG Italia.com; as they will be doing a spotlight on the artist, along with an interview, and showcasing some more of his intoxicating work. Enjoy!
‘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.
As the Libertine makes its transition into our Fall Flight series, we are constantly consuming a steady stream of new talent and amazing artistry. We could not be more excited than to share a collaboration from this team of blooming talents! Enjoy!
