This beach goddess editorial is as enchanting as one would expect. Shot both in color and black and white, model Melissa Tammerijn is captured casually posing in water, by craggy rocks and even with an equally majestic horse. Dressed in whites and neutrals, she both stands out and blends into her natural surroundings. In this way, she is like a mythical nymph.
Lensed by photographer Xavi Gordo, the beach goddess editorial appears in the July 2014 issue of ELLE Russia. The blonde beauty is clad in an easy and breezy wardrobe by stylist Anna Artamonova. The lovely looks were perfected with tousled tresses and a flawless face by beauty artist Paco Garrigues. Loose pants, flowing dresses and silk blouses have never looked better surrounded by sand and water.
