Hailey Clauson, Sweet Sophistication
I seriously love this editorial for the August issue of Vogue Russia, which was photographed by Miguel Reveriego, titled Lady Sweetness. The images show a more sophisticated side to model Hailey Clauson, who is shot in a luscious garden setting in classic designs from Stella McCartney, Elie Saab, Louis Vuitton, Salvatore Ferragamo and many more, which were chosen by stylist Katerina Mukhina.
Hailey’s hair is classic blonde, neat, wavy and full of volume, alongside her red pout and nipped in waist, this styling gives a dramatic and glamorous look to the editorial. The use of polka dots here is a great choice, the Stella McCartney dress is one of my absolute favorite pieces from the fall collections. It looks great on Hailey’s hourglass figure; the body conscious cut is very flattering.
My favorite image by far is the black and white photograph of Hailey leaning against a distressed wall, in the beautiful Stella McCartney dress. This photograph makes the fashion look fantastic, but as well as this, Hailey’s natural style shines through, and the black and white look gives the image a bit of a cinematic feel. Although there is nothing particularly revolutionary about the styling of these photographs, they are very effective, and they are a strong reminder of just how great the classic looks are.
