Sara von Schrenk, Living it up on South Beach
by Alice Byrne
Sara von Schrenk is glamorous and glossy in this editorial. She spent a sun-kissed day in South Beach with Markus Zeigler for the July issue of Elle Mexico. The summery pieces worn by Sara were chosen by stylists Shanna Nicole and Elissa Aimee, and I think they made some perfect choices. Including garments by Reberto Cavalli, Louis Vuitton, Peter Som, Eres, Reem Acra and Dior. Sara is the perfect Little Miss Sunshine.
This editorial screams summer color, from beach towels to parasols. Sara is wearing some truly stunning jewelry, and some of her hats are literally to die for. I need a jazzy summer hat like that in my life. Her long blonde hair is totally beach-babe, styled by Steven Hoeppner, and although her expert make-up is not exactly realistic for a sweaty day at the beach, there is no denying is looks completely awesome in this editorial (also by Steven Hoeppner).
My favorite image is most definitely when Sara is pulling up a green cover-up, over a similarly green bikini. I love her hair being all blown to the side, and the goings-on in the background. I am a big fan of the obstructions in front of the camera lens, which I think gives it a more natural and spontaneous feel. Also, I really need those cuffs she is wearing.
