First of all tomorrow I have to travel (not news at all, but I’ll be away a couple of weeks, so I’m in the middle of a “suitcase delirium” which usually doesn’t happen when I have to be away only for few days or so…) and generally the very next days I don’t know when and if I’ll have the chance to add posts (just to let you know). So… that explains pretty well why I decided to share these shots today; better, it partially does.
With campaigns, ads, lookbooks and all that kind of stuff I generally tend to be a little more “casual”, I mean, in these days of “Spring Summer 2012 campaigns previews excitement (or frenzy… or paroxysm…)” I guess I won’t share that material. Simply ‘cause I prefer to share it as I’ll notice in this or that magazine, fashion house website, or… well, that’s in broad terms the sense. So yep, I have to say I already noticed these shots months ago, but right the other day I checked Dior website… no, not for the horrible horrible “J’adore” commercial with Charlize Theron, Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe (deep sadness…), but for Marion Cotillard, an actress I appreciate a lot (shame on me, since her appearance in “Taxi” – 1998), and… what do I find in the Cruise 2012 section? This video I adored months ago and now more than ever,
and so I thought… wouldn’t it be nice to do the last post before this (probable) few days hiatus with one of my fav models in such an adorable and delightful shoot? Totally.
If Dalida sang “I found my love in Portofino”, talking about models I found mine in Poznan. A Monika Jagaciak who’s one of the most outstandingly solid and reliable options on the runway, such an astonishing choice talking about makeup campaigns, and way more than that – this is a good demonstration.
There’s not so much to say in fact, ‘cause the power of these shots is a gentle one made of delicate and unspeakable suggestions.
What I adored the most is Monika floating between the “young woman” / “grown-up girl” parts in such a lovely, gently seducing and captivating way. Yep, you’re right, there are a lot of shots so maybe some are more successful than others, but the “light-hearted ritzy playfulness” (and, why not?, sometimes “coquetry”) that comes out is such a marvelous pleasure I literally loved.
