I hate to repeat myself…but I just love this color palette as well. The cool azures, piercing amethysts and rich cobalts look extra exotic next to warm skin tones and the moody haze of the location. This makes me want to jet off to Monaco for the weekend…

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.

Long famed as a controversial figure in the photography community…David Hamilton is the master of the soft focus. His images capture the subtle sensuality of women in their everyday lives. While some of his work may push the envelope according to fashion standards of the 1990’s, today their racy-ness pales in comparison to the bodies of work of, say Tom Ford or Terry Richardson. I think you all know how I feel about nudity (whatever ya got…shake whatcha got) but however you may feel about these, they have greatly influenced modern fashion expression, and are certainly art in their own right…Enjoy!!!
