Besides the attitude affected by the garments chosen for a photo shoot, the location used as the setting establishes a great part of the series' mood. Laetitia Casta by Michelangelo di Battista happens to be shot in the forest, offering a lively palette of symbolism.
The Elle France editorial in the July 2011 issue does well to flaunt the richness of the primary color red. The model moves and reclines amidst her lush yet smokey surroundings, revealing the ripeness of her rouge blouses, gowns, coats and cherry lips within a cold-toned environment.
The observer can almost feel the moisture in the air and the coolness of the air on her skin, watching Laetitia Casta by Michelangelo di Battista dance within the trees with dew-soaked hair and a fresh spirit.
