British beauty Karen Elson looks truly mystical in this whimsical watercolor editorial shot by famed photographer Craig McDean. The recognizable redhead works a variety of over-the-top looks made of a plethora of fabrics, colors and textures.
The full-feathered pants and top are incredible and give an animalistic vibe to the shoot. This whimsical watercolor editorial reflects some sort of fairytale world, if fairytales were filled with supermodels.
Implications - Fairytales are a familiar artform across all generations and cultures that follow certain understood conventions and imagery. The excess of art, photography and fashion designs that are inspired by these age-old tales is an indicator of the power of familiarity and nostalgia in driving consumption.
