Leather and bondage are having a great year thanks to the surprise success of E.L. James’s 50 Shades of Grey, and the Gianluca Fontana GQ Turkey December 2012 shoot takes full advantage of that trend with a editorial that stars stunning Turkish actress Nurgül Yeşilçay.
The Gianluca Fontana GQ Turkey December 2012 shoot showcases Yeşilçay in various stages of leather-assisted undress. This Gianluca Fontana GQ Turkey shoot marks Fontana’s first for the publication, and he displays a deft touch for capturing sensuality and beauty. One spectacular shot shows Yeşilçay standing between Roman columns, leaning out of an open window. Her arms are outstretched as she looks off into the distance. The image is powerful and gripping; not only does the photo highlight Yeşilçay’s body and outfit, it showcases the gorgeous location -- Istanbul’s Ciragan Palace Kempinski.
My favourite shot in the Gianluca Fontana GQ Turkey December 2012 editorial features Yeşilçay holding a cigarette, her eyes covered by a sleeping mask and her black, leather dress slightly askew. The shot is alluring, mysterious, and seductive -- a shot and pose completely emblematic of the shoot. Something tells me this won’t be the last time Gianluca Fontana and GQ connect for a shoot.
