The Missy Rayder WSJ Magazine March 2011 editorial emotes a distinct tropical vibe that makes the marvelous model seem like a mermaid washed up onshore. The long maxi dresses incorporate vibrant colors, bold prints and clingy materials, with a shoot that ultimately showcases the decadent dress designs ready for the Spring season.
The sun-kissed model's tousled, twisted and textured hair looks as if she's just emerged from a day spent riding the waves. With writhing poses and wistful glances into the camera, Rayder channels her inner beach babe on the beautiful shores of Turks and Caicos. I love the use of island elements as props, from the large palm tree leaf, bright tropical flowers and pretty purple lei.
