The Vogue Turkey April 2011 editorial features model Valerie van der Graaf in an entire black and white spread wearing metallic ensembles that have been dulled, yet still pop out against the black background.
Van der Graaf takes sensual poses that resemble a pin-up girl from the 50s, complete with femme fatale hair. Her makeup is dark, which is emphasized by the black and white photos. The black backdrop helps to showcase the metallic clothes and also emphasizes van der Graaf's fluid poses. While a bit racy, the clothes featured are modest overall. This vixen-esque shoot was styled by Konca Aykan and captured by photographer John Linquist.
The Vogue Turkey April 2011 spread showcases designs from Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen and Altuzarra.
