Wet Look in Dazed and Confused Feb 2012 Issue Goes Under the Sea

After the Spring/Summer 2012 runways wave of aquatic-inspired fashions, and as Vogue US releases two back-to-back covers worthy of The Little Mermaid, Wet Look, an editorial out of the Dazed and Confused Feb 2012 issue, tackles a more literal interpretation of scuba-chic. Decorated in snorkeling gear and coral reef-like accessories, model Emily Baker glows in the hottest spring/summer 2012 looks with the tangible inspiration to match.

The shoot, photographed by Sharif Hamza, features Baker with slicked-back hair and effervescent makeup that gives her the glow of a mermaid freshly washed ashore. The editorial includes the buzz-worthy American automobile-inspired Prada spring shoe collection. The underwater theme for this editorial in the Dazed and Confused Feb 2012 issue also makes way for seamless incorporation of the unpredictable patterns and textures of the season.
