Intricately delicate and tastefully alluring, the Yulia Terentieva August 2011 Elle Russia spread is an artful display of femininity in the most traditional sense of the word. Photographer David Bellemere shot the cover girl dressed head to toe in elegant Dior gowns and jewelry so bright, one could catch his own reflection in the page. The lavish finds were chosen by talented stylist Faria Anichkina, who has mastered the art of womanliness.
Infused with class, yet simultaneously sultry and seductive, Terentieva captures the eyes of men and women alike with her untouchable beauty and inviting demeanor.
