Emily Sears Stars in the Latch Editorial by Mat Abad

Mat Abad photographed the lovely Emily Sears for the 'Latch' editorial. Photographing beach beauties is Abad's specialty; previously, he shot the gorgeous Tianna Gregory and Amanda Cerny in the 'Burning Desire' and 'Summer is Over' editorials, respectively.

Sears was an obvious subject for Abad, as she is the definition of a "blonde bombshell." Like Marilyn Monroe, Bridget Bardot and Pamela Anderson before her, Sears oozes unabashed sex appeal. With voluminous blonde curls, full pink lips and an intense gaze, Sears seems to be inviting the viewer to step into an intimate, personal moment.

The creative team on this editorial included hair stylist Anjelica Coco, makeup artist Krystal Alvarez and styling by Ashley Garcia and Los Angeles-based clothing brand 'For Love and Lemons.'
