These April 2016 fashion photography trends range from painted beauty editorials to poolside celebrity portraits that exude a lavish and opulent air. Standouts include Rihanna's most recent Vogue cover which features the couture-clad signer as she exits a swimming pool. Similarly, a casually dressed Kerry Washington hangs on the beach for Elle's latest cover story, donning a wardrobe that is a departure from her sharply dressed Olivia Pope character from hit television series Scandal.
In addition to ultra-glam or candid celebrity portraits, these April 2016 fashion photography trends also include whimsical and narrative fashion stories. Standouts include couture editorials that are lensed in an unexpected junkyard setting and beauty stories that feature antiquated image filters or gender-fluid styling that takes the concept of androgyny to new heights.
