COVER: KAREN ELSON BY ALEXI LUBOMIRSKI, HARPER’S BAZAAR UK, MAY 2013
Posted on April 19, 2013
Harper’s Bazaar UK blissfully sweep us away from this drab UK weather and into their pink hued garden of roses where a captivating Karen Elson stands in a glorious Alexander McQueen SS13 ensemble, for their May issue.
Check out the accompanying editorial and the striking Subscribers cover below.
The blush tint seems reminds me of the photographs Camilla Akrans produced for Rihanna’s “Loud” album artwork, while overall, the editorial verges on Mert & Marcus territory, but retains it’s softness and femininity without the OTT saturation & flaw free retouching.
The highlight aside from the composition is of course the styling by Leith Clark which ties in perfectly with the “La Vie En Rose” theme.
