What is Summer to you?

In Christmas, Everyday, Mag Love, Party time, Sun, Weather, Western Australia on December 7, 2010 at 10:41 am

Inspirational Magazine Covers

In Alex Perry, Awards, Colour, Mag Love, Magazines, Models, Women on October 26, 2010 at 6:00 am

This is an example of one of the best beauty still-life shots I’ve seen in forever.  Love RUSSH!

Mag Love: Vogue Australia + the other CC

In Mag Love, Tan on June 8, 2010 at 8:16 am

Okay, yes – it is the best known fashion magazine in the world.  And, yes – she is one of the original supermodels.  But combine the two and we have this lovely spread in Vogue Australia where Cindy ‘beauty spot’ Crawford shows off her definition with thanks to a good tan and a loaf of bread.

Minimal hair and makeup aside, the beauty of this shoot is that her skin is left to do the talking.  And fair enough, as it is a spread about Ms C sharing her good skin secrets. Read the rest of this entry »
