Relaxed Elegance, Vivianne for QVEST
by Alice Byrne
For the most recent issue of QVEST, model Vivianne stars in a beautifully relaxed and natural fashion editorial. Photographer Andrea D’Aquino shoots this story, with warm tones and soft focus, which is enhanced with the styling by Arkadius Giesek and Daniel Balks. The make-up and hair design here is very feminine and delicate, by Eda Yildizalks.
This editorial embraces the outdoors and natural color combinations, the luxurious and striking fashion choices alongside the outdoor imagery looks fantastic. The overall look of the series is very elegant, with high necklines, smart cuts and minimal sophisticated jewelry. Vivianne looks feminine and graceful here, which makes her appear very endearing and charming within the housewife-like narrative.
My favorite image by far is the light-filled photograph with the white dress, oversized hat and lace gloves. Even though Vivianne’s expression here is hardly visible, I think this is a beautiful shot. I love the way the light works here, and I think the all white styling looks great alongside her deep tan and dark hair.
