Top 60 Fashion Photography Trends in August

From Makeup-Free Celeb Shoots to Playful Goth Features

— August 30, 2015 — Fashion
These August 2015 fashion photography trends range from candid celeb shoots to playful Goth editorials that challenge common stereotypes related to the subculture. Fans of androgynous fashion will fall in love with the month's edgier editorial examples -- from supermodel Laetitia Casta's short-haired Harper's Bazaar Spain feature to Design Scene's recent, raw denim exclusive.

In addition to highlighting conceptual clothing and beauty looks that blur gender lines, these August 2015 fashion photography trends also include candid photo features that show fans a more raw side of over-exposed celebrities. From Justin Bieber to reality star Kim Kardashian, famous stars are stripped of makeup and Photoshop effects in this month's revealing and unexpected image sets. The month's overall photo aesthetic is un-posed and exudes an air of spontaneity.
