Looks to Love


I'm completely in love with this editorial for the April issue of Numero magazine. From Argentinian photography duo Luciana Val and Franco Musso, these images are a vision of 1960s inspired loveliness. A little bit Audrey, a little bit Natalie Wood, a touch Belle Du Jour, with some Hitchcock thrown in for good measure. And the make-up and hair is flawless. Can someone create a ponytail for me that is that pretty and perfect?

Mesmerised by the styling and gorgeous use of light in these pics, I sought out other work by these Val and Musso and discovered a whole thread on The Fashion Spot. Their use of light and shadow is consistently beautiful and most of the spreads have a vintage sensibility. Here are a few more examples from Harper's Bazaar and Numero. I particularly love that their models always look like ladies, as per the top models of the 50s and 60s. No zoned out, disheveled and half naked waifs here.
