For the first editorial in The Libertine’s “Summer Session” series, we bring you a stunning siren sequence; lensed by Libertine favorite, Akila Berjaoui. For this editorial, Akila captures her gorgeous friend Vlada as they lounge around the pool on a summer day. Vlada’s energy and beauty are completely disarming in ‘Don’t You Call Anybody Else Baby”. Her smoothly toasted skin, wayward curls and deep chocolate eyes lend easy sensuality to the flawless photography (airy summer styles assembled by Akila and Jacob Habib). We couldn’t be more excited to exclusively share Akila and Vlada’s recent collaboration as a part of our latest review. Enjoy!

In this BRILLIANT editorial, Photographer Will Davidson gathers his team together (among them: Stylist Stevie Dance ) and hits the road with current fashion sensation: Model Ashley Smith. Back in Ashley’s birthplace of Austin, Texas, the A-Team shoots a Rock & Roll/Redneck editorial for the Fall issue of Russh 2010. Between cowboy bars, backyard barbeques, junkyards and jacked-up trucks…Davidson captures an ordinary day of Texas life for a very UN-ordinary gap-toothed girl, in an almost voyeuristic way. Ashley sports her usual eclectic, off-beat style; offsetting her stunningly quirky beauty in this biopic twelve page spread.
