Foreign locations and exotic adventures come to mind when looking at this Elle US February 2014 photo shoot. Photographer Horst Diekgerdes shoots this spread with white buildings, some sand and palm trees as the backdrop. Despite the covered up fashions, the location screams “my condo on Miami Beach.” Model Cris Herrmann sports short brown hair and more natural, downplayed makeup, the kind you would wear to the beach.

Even though this is a summer time spread, the fashion in this Elle US February 2014 pictorial is all very covered up. Either Elle is trying to preach the dangers of sun-damage or the inspiration was unmistakably Middle Eastern. With turban-styled head wraps, large capes and boldly colored patterns, the inspiration could be a bit of both.
