The Ashley Smith The Sunday Telegraph is Elegant and Sophisticated

The Ashley Smith The Sunday Telegraph editorial gives up the typical sexy poolside poses and revealing swimwear for looks that are much more demure. Since it is clearly inspired by retro '50s fashion, it is not at all surprising that these poolside outfits are as elegantly ladylike as can be considering the context.

Captured by Dan Martensen, a photographer born in Pleasantville, New York City, the Ashley Smith The Sunday Telegraph editorial is comprised of bright colors, clashing prints and, of course, high-waisted bikini bottoms. It is the tops that steal the show, however, since it is not common to see full tees when relaxing by the pool anymore. The looks were styled by Clare Richardson with makeup by Darlene Jacobs and hair by Michael Long.
