I love the sweetness of this shoot for Teen Vogue Feb 08. It was photographed by the fabulous Arthur Elgort. The models are Steven Strait and Simona.

Oh I love everything about these photos! The outfits have such a vintage feel, but the layering and colors keep them from being dowdy at all. And the couple is so cute. Just wonderful...thanks for posting! (I especially love the girl's glasses in the fourth photo).

Oh and thanks so much for the wonderful comment you left on my Rome post. I could never be bored by your lovely comments. I'm sorry its taken me so long to respond.
