Woman | Anai Ekalino By Natasha Kertes In 'The Story of Aquarius' At AfroStyle Magazine

In many parts of the world, women are responsible for getting the water, a daily, grinding task unimaginable to most women in developed countries. UNICEF outlines what is being done to try to directly involve women in working to improve their water supply with wells and sanitation programs.

The positive association of female powers with water has a long and rich history in parts of the African continent.

Online AfroStyle Magazine brings these concepts together in an exciting, conceptual fashion vision from 2013 ‘The Story Of Aquarius’ featuring model Anai Ekalino. Photographer Natasha Kertes is behind the lens and on style also, with makeup by Pamela Sanderson Garcia.

Natasha Kertes is Russian by birth and is close friends with Sudanese Anai Ekalino. KA online wrote a detailed story about their collaboration and June 2013 show in Miami, with proceeds supporting the ‘Fund for Malaria in African Children’.

Monica Cima & Hannare Blaauboer Share 'An Appetite For Attraction' By Nicolas Guerin For Revs #14 

In contrast to the abysmally superficial Anja Rubik by Mario Testino Vogue Paris April editorial published yesterday, photographer Nicolas Guerin presents a less fancy and frankly more beautiful vision of sensuality and restrained lust. In contrast to what postured as heated passion that is devoid of believability by Vogue Paris, models Monica Cima and Hannare Blaaboer are simmering on the back burner of eroticism, styled by Sonia Logerot in splendid lingerie and sumptuous details.

Creative director Sheri Chiu can’t afford the superficial French chateau used by Vogue Paris — a visual statement that is far more about the typically empty sex lives of the very rich than erotic lust. Chiu settes instead for a small space drenched in atmospheric light and moody effects, coupled with clues of wealth but a far greater focus on the lingerie and simmering tension between Monica and Hannare for Revs #14.

‘Appetite for Attraction’ envelopes us in unspoken sensual possibilities in a genuine feast for the eyes and our erotic imaginations. / Hair by Christian at Tuly; makeup by Virginie Rascle

Nadja, Naomi & Stella Soar In Luigi & Iango's Powder Images For Exhibition Magazine Spring/Summer 2015

The Spring/Summer 2015 issue of Exhibition Magazine will premier at Colette in Paris on March 4 at an exclusive launch between 5:30-7pm. The theme of Exhibition’s new edition is Powder, a concept brilliantly executed in these sublime portraits of Nadja Auermann, Naomi Campbell and Stella Tennant by Luigi & Iango. Robbie Spencer styles this pedigree trio in images that soar with ‘organic materials meeting architectural layering.’ Luigi & Iango are on fire, and this new editorial preview is one more example of photography that’s a testament to strong women who dominate their visual space./ Makeup by Virginia Young, Art Direction Edwin Sberro ~ Anne
