Hair Everywhere

Hair style is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself.  ~Hubert de Givenchy, Vogue, July 1985

Hair Everywhere!

I start with the hair today because it’s the hair that has been all over the feeds and probably will be all over Flickr. What gives this special meaning for me is that the hair is named after a friend. She, like the hair, can be unmanageable, untamed, and quite bold. But she is also beautiful, just like this hair. Vitabela Dubrovna knows Irena well enough to know how she is.

I wanted a skin that was arrestingly beautiful and Hart Larsson’s skin was ideal. With the crisply outlined lips and boldly outlined eyes, this skin can stand up to hair like this and be on equal footing without being brash or crass.

The dress is sleek and classy—a newer offering from Shinichi Mathy. Shinichi is known for making casual fun stuff but has lately branched out to more sophisticated evening wear and this dress is wonderfully textured and rendered. I love the simplicity of the black and white and the almost Asian pattern of dots.
