Full Moon: One Night, Two Possibilities

I love the dual nature of this editorial.  It's a full moon and both her masculine and feminine sides are thirsting to take over the streets of Paris.  The masculinity of the classically tailored smoking pant and tuxedo is captured effortlessly and worn with confidence.  I love the glamour of these gorgeously stunning dresses.  The last blue and black sequined number (with a sort of 80's vibe) is killing it!  

Not a typical day at the beach

I love this beach editorial.  It is not the typical beach scene.  It is dark and dramatic.  Love the angles of the shoot, adds depth and dimension.  It is visually stunning.  Love the juxtaposition of the heavy, deep rich dark blue and chunky accessories countered with airy sheer fabric.
