Photoshoot: Dinara Chetyrova for Elle Vietnam, July 2011 (plus giveaway results!)

Before we get down to business, I have some blog housekeeping to take care of.  A few weeks ago I posted a giveaway to celebrate my first blogiversary.  I want to take a second to thank everyone for their wonderful comments and words of encouragement.  I declined to comment on the post itself until now because I didn’t want to muck up the numbers due to the giveaway, but I will be responding to everyone individually shortly.

Now, on to the results! (Note: there were 38 eligible comments, with #1 being the first comment posted chronologically)

And the winner is… Alexis of North on Harper!   Congratulations Alexis!

Please be on the lookout for an email or tweet from me 🙂

Now, let’s talk photoshoots!

The other day I was chatting with some friends on twitter and commented on the fact that I haven’t actually blogged much about fashion lately (except on Full Time Ford).  What defines a “real women” and rants about name-calling are important issues that definitely go beyond the realm of fashion alone.

Sometimes, however, it’s just nice to focus on the beauty of a fashion editorial.  These amazing images were shot by photographer Jamie Nelson and styled by Tre Ford for the July 2011 issue of Elle Vietnam.

Nothing says fierce like a mix of animal prints, metallics and jewel tones!

I’m not that familiar with model Dinara Chetyrova, but these?  Wow.  Just wow.

Each image is just as striking as the last.

    Interesting how much impact they have created in these photographs with just a simple sky background. Really keeps the focus on the model and the styling, but still incredibly beautiful.

    I love the animal print dress on her. And I adore how the picture was shot, looking up her body to her face.

    Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful pictures! Have a great day!
