I spotted this editorial on Anine Bing’s lovely new blog Anine’s World and had to share it; Gemma Ward’s beauty, the perfect styling and the incredible summer make-up; it doesn’t get much better than this. It’s her make-up that I’m most inspired by. With summer trips already in full swing, achieving the perfect summer make-up look is high on my list of to-dos. Admittedly I don’t have the perfect genetics of Miss Ward but a soft pink-gold eye and bronzed face are not too far out of reach. I’d love to give the slicked back hair a go but I’m pretty sure I would look like a boy.
This is the first time I’ve come across Alexandra Nataf’s work but it won’t be the last, her beautiful portfolio has so many incredible photoshoots. There’s a stunning swimwear shoot for Matteau you should check out. I found Ilona Hamer’s beautiful blog ‘You Are Not Ilona’ through some work she was doing with Australian model, blogger and general goddess Alexandra Spencer. She now no longer posts to the blog but is a guest editor on Space Matters, alongside Columbine Smille. I love Ilona’s way of styling, it’s a great balance between polished and casual, and typifies the style I dream of achieving with my own wardrobe. And where did she find those hoop earrings, I need them in my life like the earth needs the sun, perfect.
