French model Chloe Lecareux dazzles in her Elle Denmark magazine editorial, shot by photographer Jonas Jensen. Dressed in rich golds and rippling blues by Sassi Baré, Lecareux is an image of international beauty and elegance.

The Elle Denmark editorial features a spin on traditional folk garb, hinting at the history behind the clothing. Flowing head garbs with beautiful bold patterns and ethnically vintage jewelry are the focal points in each photo. The colors in Lecareux’s Elle Denmark spread seem to pop off the page causing smaller details to become more noticeable, such as the ruby red of Lecareux’s lipstick or the shimmering blue of her smock. Each photo features a still shot of the model looking piercingly at the camera lens.

Simple and extremely effective, the Chloe Lecareux’s Elle Denmark editorial is more about the model’s relationship with the abstract notion of cultural identity and the audience than her surroundings.
