BoudoirOctober 1, 2009
The lighting in Marie Claire Italia’s Boudoir editorial is sheer magic, mirroring the softness and romance of the clothes and settings with its muted golden tones. I’m reminded of indolent upper-class country degeneracy as described in books set in 1920s Britain (though obvi the clothing evokes a different period.) I’m having fun filling in the story–the heroine here, played by Sophie Vlaming, is a bored ice queen who discovers her lusty side through either a lesbian fling or through the teachings of a degenerate chum, depending on how you read the pics. I’ve been trying to come up with a name for her. Something like Patricia or Charlotte. The result, through photographer David Bellemere’s lens, is dreamy and saturated in golden light. The shots are as pretty as the clothing.
Still pondering her name… I’ll have to come up with something soon, or I’ll just have to call her Fenella as a joke.
