COVER: VOGUE RUSSIA, AUGUST 2012, NATASHA POLY BY ELLEN VON UNWERTH
Posted on July 26, 2012
First of before I get into how stunning Natasha looks on this cover of Vogue Russia, I want to clarify something which I have noticed on many blogs/websites.
Many people have come to the assumption that her arm has been retouched out of the picture, however I don’t believe that this is a photoshop fail in anyway whatsoever. This pose can EASILY be recreated but will just look “odd” to some, due to the left arm mimicking the angle of the right hand, (yes, her RIGHT hand), behind her head and also due to the way it has been lit and cropped. IF it were her LEFT arm behind her head, (as some people mistakenly assumed), her thumb would be present first followed by her index finger, then her middle finger. This, as you can see is clearly not the case.
Now I’ve gotten that out of the way, she looks absolutely stunning. The slicked glamorous movie-star/vamp look really works with her amazing features and a chin you could cut your hand on!
Oh and as I LOVE proving a point and embarrassing myself in the process….
Clearly I am no model but even with Apple’s photo-booth and the crop tool, it can done!
