Retro revivalism has become an oft-used trope in fashion over the last few years, and the Michella Cruz GQ Russia December 2012 editorial is a perfect example of how the tactic can be used to seamlessly blend vintage aesthetics with new-age style.

The Michella Cruz GQ Russia editorial was shot by Swiss-born, Paris-based photographer Rene Habermacher, whose client list reads like a veritable who's who of high fashion, including Armani, BVLGARI and Commes Des Garcon, just to name a few.

In the Michella Cruz GQ Russia editorial, Habermacher captures the 5'10 Brazilian beauty looking like a gorgeous socialite, exuding the understated confidence and sexuality of an old Hollywood ingénue.

My favorite shot in the Michella Cruz GQ Russia editorial features Cruz leaning on a door clad in a leopard-print skirt and black bra, right hand haphazardly placed on her hip, mouth slightly ajar as she looks off-camera. The image perfectly captures the tenor that the Michella Cruz GQ Russia editorial expertly nails: casual indifference, seduction and beauty.
