The Elle Vietnam September 2013 editorial shot by Benjamin Kanarek was a gorgeous display of the most incredible couture looks for fall. The spread was also a lesson is juxtaposition, as the stylist paired these exquisite looks with a broken down building.
The series was entitled 'Dark Couture,' and model Chrystal Copland perfectly embodied the theme. She needed to evoke the perfect mix between urban and elegant, and she nailed the look. It is also difficult for a model to standout compared to the outfits she was in, but Copland did an excellent job of holding her own.
The dresses were drool-worthy pieces by Atelier Versace, Alexis Mabille Couture and Schiaparelli. The backdrop of the shoot was the perfect contrast to the gowns, as the stunning couture outfits clashed with the graffiti-stained walls.
This Elle Vietnam September 2013 editorial is a gorgeous spread that proves that couture doesn't need to be stuffy in order for it to be amazing.
