The Vogue UK 'Age of Beauty' Editorial is Mournful and Mysterious

The new 'Age of Beauty' editorial for Vogue UK channels a mournful and pensive vibe that makes viewers stop and stare. Featuring model Drake Burnette of DNA Model Management, the editorial depicts a woman dressed in outfits that evoke a sense of mourning. Her glazed expressions pierce through the camera and make it clear that this editorial does not tell a happy story.

Photographer Josh Olins did a wonderful job with 'Age of Beauty.' His use of natural lighting and minimalist backdrops makes for an organic spread that is all about the model and the outfits instead of distracting viewers with loud backgrounds. The outfits, styled by Lucinda Chambers, are simple. They use black and white fabrics only, creating a striking contrast in each shot.

This brooding editorial is a great example of fashion editorials telling a riveting story while still showcasing their fantastic designs. Stats for Grungy Widow-Inspired Fashion Trending: Older & Popular
