Elle France: Red Hot, Laetitia Casta

by Alice Byrne

For the July issue of ELLE France, French actress Laetitia Casta is photographed in sexy red garments for a wild, outdoor shoot. Shot by Michelangelo di Battista, this editorial is set in a forest area, which is fit for a dramatic film. The narrative here is sensual and elegant, with Laetitia doing a great job of portraying the seductive and passionate story.

I really love the simple colour scheme here of red and green. Choosing to dress the model in only one colour is a great decision, as it contrasts wonderfully with the woodland and green leaves in the background. Each photograph is red-hot, and they are all really great for different reasons. Laetitia looks fantastic in this editorial, and the red really compliments her natural look. I really like the close-up images, and I feel these are the strongest.
