First day of spring is here, yeah!!! 💐💐💐 So, I thought it was a perfect occasion to post my Russian Inspired Winter Snow Editorial 😍😍😍 supported by one of my favorite poems by Feodor Tyutchev (I just love how he depicted the nature).. 😍😍😍
We actually shot this in Toronto with my sister (yes, we still play dress up and shoot editorials together) 💜💛💚..
Iddie Fourka made this beautiful Russian-Ukrainian crown inspired headpiece 😍😍😍 and we wanted to style something bright, fashionable with etnic-folk feel, that would contrast with the snow, but would also be wearable and definately not a costume!!
Inspired by the Slavic Princesses ( Русские Красавицы) we needed a bright long dress, that would recall Russian Sarafan! The long orange parsley patterned Ralph Lauren dress was perfect! 💗 We added a white long faux fur and suede winter coat, bead decorated cashmere gloves and pair of flat winter boots with high orange socks! 😗
The effect was bright and beautiful, but most of all well balanced! We added final touches like a little native small suede purse and a furry animal key chain! Iddie styled my hair and I did my own makeup in natural tones with pink cheeks and cranberry lip! 😗💄
I felt like a real Old County Princess lost in the forest! I actually fell off the tree during the photoshoot (that is why my socks are covered in snow)! 😂😂😂 And it was soo cold that our noses were so red (I had to constantly re-touch the makeup) and our hands frozen, but we had soo much fun and the results turned out pretty dreamy don’t you think?!
I love our collaborations with Iddie, because we really inspire each other and I am very proud of my talented sister and best friend! 💟
Thanks for being so great and shooting me! 💟
Here is the preview of her look that we shot that day 😎😗 but that will be on the next post! 😘😘
