Model Anastasia Shershen is darkly gowned in the Elle Ukraine November 2012 editorial. Stylist Natalia Osadchaya was inspired by Pre-Raphaelite style when putting together the wardrobe for the photoshoot. Pulling pieces from the likes of Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Christian Dior, Alberta Ferretti, Bottega Veneta and Prada, the elegant ensembles are full of romantic whimsy, though in a more serious way.
The Elle Ukraine November 2012 editorial was shot by photographer Nikolay Biryukov with production by Aliona Gluhih and Stasya Mindlina. Captured at the lush site of Lake Como, the Russian beauty is surrounded by stone walls, green grass and, of course, grey waters. Her golden tresses were given a glamorously wild wave by hairstylist Ernesto Montenovo while makeup artist David Jones concentrated on dark berry lips.
