As striking as any of the other photoshoots inspired by mermaids has been, the Haute Living 'Le Petite Sirene' editorial has a softness about it that is more romantic than mythical. The frothy surf of the sea combined with the wispy clouds in the sky lend the perfect backdrop for the pale blues, greens and golds of the fashion being showcased.
The Haute Living Le Petite Sirene editorial was captured by New York- and Copenhagen-based photographer Danny Christensen. Shot on location at Rockaway Beach, model Elena Potapova could very well be mistaken for a real-life mermaid. Her platinum blonde locks, which were styled by Bok-Hee, trail down the shimmering gowns while her pale face almost glows in the sun, which she appears to haven't seen in some time.
