Eastern cultures are already considered romantically exotic and now the ELLE Canada December 2012 editorial takes that sentiment up a notch. Adding a magical touch, the surreal images appear to channel a fairy world on one end and a crazy carnival on the other. While the colorful filters add a haze that speaks to the former, the blunt platinum blonde hair lends itself to the latter. The painted backdrop simply helps to accentuate the lovely Eastern element.
The ELLE Canada December 2012 editorial was lensed by photographer Neil Mota. Starring Elmer Olsen model Sarra, the photoshoot was styled by Fritz, who pulled pieces from the racks of such labels as Donna Karan, David Dixon, Chanel and Mikhael Kale. Beauty artist Sabrina Rinaldi completed the looks wither red lips and pale skin.
