Puppet Show

“Whimsical” is kind of a douchey adjective, but in the case of this Vogue Italia editorial, I think it’s perfectly apt. Do we agree?

  1. Totally agree! Even though the images are a bit strange I think they are so inspiring. It’s spreads like these that make me think styling would be a career I’d love. The options and creativity are endless!

    Thanks for sharing, Sabra!

  2. Ha! Loving the “blushing bride” with the veil… These pretty much ROCK!

  3. whimsical is douchey? Dammit, I still think its appropriate in certain contexts. I dont know if this context is it though. These pictures may give me nightmares.

  6. Ack! These are like those dolls with the eyes that open and close, and you know sometimes when one eye gets stuck?
    Very creative though – they successfully achieved that creepy look.

  7. Gimme those shoes. All of them.

    Ah and there I was thinking I was the only person in the world that can’t stand the words Whimsy and Whimsical! Yuk.

    Those pictures are so weird, amazing makeup!

    Fashion is not where I go first with these photos, so creepy! but what good Halloween ideas! But on second glance-so pretty! I love the dress in the bottom photo and the blouse in the first!
