"Where Trouble Melts Like Lemon Drops"

Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2010 Couture Collection

Sifting through this editorial is rather upsetting, but not because the editorial itself was anywhere near disappointing. This is purely due to the fact, that for months now, I intended to base my first editorial shoot on a similar concept. However, if any magazine can execute my dream photo shoot flawlessly and to it's full potential, its W magazine. The styling for this shoot was done so impeccably, and is a true reflection of the art of fashion. The viewer is taken on a journey through beautiful images that evoke emotion and nostalgia manifested by the clothing worn in the editorial. This spread is absolutely inspirational and undoubtedly does justice to classic children's literature. So, I guess i'm not all that bitter about not jumping at the chance to illustrate my personal vision. You know what they say, "last one there's a rotten egg." or in Humpty Dumpty's case... a broken one.

I just saw this editorial a couple days ago and fell in LOVE with it. The styling is absolutely gorgeous, and the clothes are to die for (How can you go wrong with haute couture?) I'm glad that someone else finds it just as wonderful as I did!
