La Dolce Vita: Mariana Braga
by Alice Byrne
The spring / summer 2012 fashion editorials are starting to arrive, in this particular shoot for New Zealand’s Fashion Quarterly is a great start, titled La Dolce Vita. Styled by Marina Didovich, Mariana Braga is taking it easy on the Amalfi Coast in white lace, pleated skirts, linen and strappy sandals. Providing the perfect antidote from miserable December weather, this editorial gives the beholder the chance to escape to the rustic, romantic streets of Southern Italy.
It goes without saying that Mariana looks absolutely stunning in these photographs. Her bronzed skin and tousled hair goes absolutely perfectly with the fashion choices, creating the perfect summer vibe. In particular we love the photograph of Mariana standing at the waterfront in tailored linen, with the town landscape in the background, and the title shot where she is reclining on the beach.
