This Girl Can Dance

While browsing some of my favorite threads on The Fashion Spot, I found this amazing editorial of Irina Lazareanu by David Bellemere for Marie Clare Italia May 2010 .

This editorial is seems different from all others I've ever seen. It's just very raw....brimming with emotion and life. It's like you're watching a performance as you turn the pages. (or uhhh, scroll down the tfs thread...)

Notice how the powder swirling in the air just adds visible energy to the photograph above. Beautiful!

Irina has been described as the muse for designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Nicolas Ghesquière. After you see this editorial you realize....who wouldn't find inspiration in this girl?

Photobucketighting in these images is fantastic.....it gives the entire shoot an on-stage feeling.

There is so much grace in the photo above, especially in Irina's neck and shoulders. Does anyone know if Irina has ever had professional dance training? I think she has but I'm no ballerina, so I can't tell for sure.

You are right. this has an untamed, beautiful energy. this is what great editorials should be like. never letting the fashion or the concept overtake each other. Such a perfect balance is not easy to achieve.

Beautiful pictures. I have no idea if she has any training as a dancer, but she looks extremely convincing and poised.

she must be a ballerina or have some dancing training, no one with no dancing experience would have posed so perfectly in the second last picture!

Dusk said...

Wow!
This is a beautiful editorial and this model is lithe and lissome and lovely.
Not a dancer though, you can tell by the positioning of her feet and hands, just an extremely graceful in movement model.
