Whenever I am completely transfixed by a shoot in an Australian fashion mag, it has always been styled by the outlandishly brilliant Vassallo, and Skennar is constantly pushing things just beyond the limit, making his images jump up off the pages (yes - she IS walking out of the surf in heels....).
Individually, these two are so prolific and revered, but something even more amazing happens when they work together.
With all these elements coming together in one stupendous shoot, I had no choice but to revisit and post up. (also, this is post #200....)
The December issue of VOGUE India was a bit of a yawn - until I came upon THIS shoot.
From the concept, to the clothes, to the styling, to the location, to the grooming (nail work is RIDICULOUS...), to the model...
Could have been full marks for flawless execution on all fronts - except there is no credit for the nail technician (FOUL!). Unforgivable, considering how incorporated they are in the overall look of this story.
