What seems to be most compelling about these photographs of Raquel Zimmermann by Josh Olins is the way that they turn the Brazilian model into a gorgeous girl next door. The Vogue UK spreads see her placed amidst mundane surroundings at a bus stop, a neglected domestic facade and reclining in plastic patio furniture.
Within such ordinary scenes, the clothing that the model wears appears all the more familiar and undoubtedly much more affordable than it actually is. The big-haired belle flaunts flouncy skirts, tube tops, sundresses and bikinis, paired with enormous hoop earrings and gold bling accessories that would make her a common sight to see in any Western beach town. Despite this subjective observation, however, Raquel Zimmermann by Josh Olins stars a woman far more alluring than most you'd ever come across.
