The Anja Rubik for Vogue Japan May 2012 editorial is highly defined and classic. The Polish model is adorned in vintage-inspired gowns for the 'Couture to Adore' shoot. The series boasts simple composition, yet an innate depth. The lighting perfectly captures the awe-striking beauty of the gowns and the beautiful frame of the celebrity model.
While each look is heavily traditional, the pieces are modernized with subtle detailing. One dress is finished with curly script, another shoot includes large space-like sunglasses and a beautiful gown is paired with a wrist watch. The shoot was styled by Anna Dello Russo.
The shoot was lensed by iconic fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier. He began as a freelance photographer, before launching into the fashion world as a major influence. His work has been featured in Vogue, Marie Claire and many other large publications.
The Anja Rubik for Vogue Japan May 2012 editorial is both retro and contemporary.
