Beachside tailgates gets a daring hipster makeover in the Rene Vaile Oyster Magazine #94 shoot, featuring Laragh McCann and Anja Konstantinova. The spread shows the two girls chilling in the parking lot of a sandy waterfront, looking incredibly cool and slightly bored with their surroundings, in typical hipster fashion. The clothing is a mix of bohemian babe and street kid stunner, with flowing white rompers, denim vests and revealing tank tops. My favorite photo of the series shows Anja Konstantinova sitting on the grass in an oversized Adidas shirt, looking like any girl you might see at a park on a hot summer day, as she squints at the sun, slightly unimpressed.
I absolutely adore shoots like the Rene Vaile Oyster Magazine spread, that show the models as regular girls out in the sun. The combination of hipster fashion and laid-back poses gives the photos a sense of realism that I'm sure many young fashionistas, and photography fans alike, will love.
