Hitting the road in the California desert, model Alina Baikova showcases an array of safari-inspired outfits for the Elle Russia July 2013 cover shoot. Yet to the untrained eye, the looks might not seem very exotically practical at all. That is because they have been given a modern edge to better suit the youthful style of today's fashionable female.
The Elle Russia July 2013 cover shoot was captured on location by photographer Michael Sanders. The Ukrainian beauty was outfitted by stylist Daria Anichkina in animal prints, gladiator sandals, earthy hues and relaxed knits for the photoshoot. Perfect for an adventurous road trip on the back of a motorcycle, the looks were finished with tousled tresses by hairstylist Cori Bardo and a flawless face by Darlene Jacobs.
