LoveCat Magazine delivers fifties vintage-inspired frames in this month's headlining editorial. Dutch model Valerie Van Der Graaf is no stranger to LoveCat’s glossy pages. This delicate beauty captures the sultry and mysterious side of a young woman from the 1950s. With the help of Van Der Graaf’s poetic presence, photographer Pierre Dal Corso was able to capture the raspy but modern environment needed for this shoot.

Stylist Sophie Clauzel incorporated soft hues to contrast the rich warmth from Van Der Graaf’s surroundings. The soft and sheer textures from the clothing help capture the authentic feeling of the photo shoot. The opted colour choices of black and white (with a small splash of red) blend rhythmically with the textured grains of each individual frame. This New York based magazine prides itself on its unconventional approach to beauty and fashion. This photo shoot is the case in point.
