The Season's Best Haute Couture by Justin Wu for L'Officiel Ukraine

Mariana Idzkowska's love affair with haute couture was beautifully captured by photographer Justin Wu for the December 2010 issue of L'Officiel Ukraine. The romanticized story entitled Peheccahc features the stunning model in wonderful designs from couturier Elie Saab and Valentino Couture.

Justin Wu's heightened romanticism plays an integral role for the photo shoot -- cascading dresses, neutral and bold colors, and the enchanting Valentino wire dress tell stories of love and charm.

The gorgeous editorial excites a sense of hope and optimism for love and romance and looks like it belongs in a Jane Austen novel. Upscale elegance mixed with fairy tale settings recaptures my lost dreams of becoming a princess, and in dresses like these ones, Prince Charming is surely on his way.
