The Vogue Russia May 2012 edition is focused upon the themes of modern maternity. In the spread, model Maryna Linchuk is found toting two young children, all the while strutting down cramped urban streets. The taxis and metropolitan street signs displayed in the pictures were captured by photographer Alexi Lubomirski who managed to perfectly grasp the daily going-ons of a rounded businesswoman.
The apparel choices for the ‘Baby on Board’ photo shoot were selected by stylist Ekaterina Mukhina. Linchuk is painted as an on-the-go mom with a-line skirts and a sleek two-piece suit, consistently jazzed up with chunky neck pieces and spiky stilettos. The merger of parenthood with chic and powerful motifs is significant here, displaying to the Vogue Russia readership that women can successfully master a career while tending to family responsibilities.
