The Flare 'To The Max' editorial does a stunning job of bringing the Victorian look into the future--way into the future. With a sci-fi flair, the looks are at once opulent and stark. From modernized interpretations of regal updos and embellished ensembles to classically ornate backdrops and futuristic props, the photoshoot melds the two eras for a seamless look at a distant future heavily influenced by the past.
Captured by New York- and Toronto-based photographer Chris Nicholls, the Flare 'To The Max' editorial stars models Hannah Glasby and Melie. Styled by editor Elizabeth Cabral, they are clad in pieces from such labels as Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and others. The looks were perfected by beauty artist Tony Masciangelo.
