The Hailey Clauson August 2011 Vogue Russia editorial is a sweetly styled practice in the art of seduction. Channeling that vampish, vintage, old Hollywood-glam that is so popular among fashion photogs and stylists as of late, Clauson steals the show with this stunning shoot that strikes the perfect balance between upscale elegance and sensual coquette that all women aspire to be and all men dream about.

Showing off her most sophisticated side in this forties film siren editorial, Clauson rocks lace, polka dots and black sheer designs from Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton and Salvatore Ferragamo among others. Shot by Miguel Reveriego and styled by the talented Katerina Mukhina, the shoot is a mid-summer night's dream and a brilliant show of fashion as art.

Implications - Fashion shoots are most appealing to consumers when they strie a valance between sophistication and salaciousness.
