I love the last one where she is wearing blue eyeshadow. Her eyes really pop.... and what gorgeous jewellery. XXXX

Great pics, I love that 70's retro-glam look... the big, thick fringes get me every time.. and the lovely tall stilettos went great with the 'Lipstick Jungle' track! Love it all.

Angie Muresan said...

Oh that first dress reminds me of one my mother had when I was young and we spent our winter in Rome. She was so glamorous and beautiful. And kind of haughty too, come to think of it. But not in reality. Just to keep the men away.

Kelley Anne said...

This is incredible. I love her hair, first off. I've been trying to do something similar with my bangs, but its not really working out:) Second of all, the clothes are so lush. They have a distinct 70's feeling to them...with the colors and fabrics.

Ally,The Vintage Valley said...

how amazing is the cherry red skirt and jacket (simply to die for)!!! fantastic photos :)

chicknamedhermia said...

I like the use of mirrors, esp in the first one, because it's not the point of focus....it's a secondary find after you've scanned the picture!

Maggi said...

Woo woo, look at that backless dress! This makes me want bangs real bad...

Madelief said...

Hi DJA,

Tres Chique!

Lieve groet, Madelief

The third photograph is my absolute favorite - she is divine. And I love the fact that the entire editorial is so reminiscent of "Valley of the Dolls." Fabulous!! :)
