Instead of focusing on the steamy grittiness that often characterizes the Western theme, the Harper’s Bazaar UK Diamond Cowgirl editorial introduces a sparkling refinement. A modern twist on a classic genre, there is still no mistaking the inspiration for this studio photo shoot.

The Harper’s Bazaar UK Diamond Cowgirl editorial was shot by fashion photographer Rafael Stahelin for the magazine's March 2012 issue. Starring Ukrainian model Ella Kandyba, the photo shoot showcases glamorous spring jewelry. Paired with cowboy hats and embellished jackets, the looks by stylist Carmen Borgonovo are at once casual and dressy. Nevertheless, the dressy element is at the forefront of each look.

The Harper’s Bazaar UK Diamond Cowgirl editorial also features a bronzed look by make-up artist Karina Constantine and golden locks by Karin Bigler. Stats for Sparkling Western Shoots Trending: Older & Buzzing
