wreckedstellar said...

The photos themselves and the way the models are posed are gorgeous as they are, but the fact that they're in black and white gives them that extra intrigue! Hope you can make it to my slumber party- details are on my blog! :) xo, Mel

so cool!

Jen said...

as much as i love color, there's just something about black and white that i love so much. it's a whole other art form to capturing shades of gray rather than color.
great post :D

Laura in Paris said...

B & W pictures .. so much class! Butwhen I read the title of your post in the update I have in my blog, I though you were thinking Courreges in the 70'ties. Black and white Courreges was also fabulous!

Gorgeous b/w pictures. Versace 1990 is such a classic! Sabine x

Amelia said...

It's always really interesting when magazines decide to do a b&w editorial. It seems like you lose something in not seeing the clothes in color, but it most definitely changes the atmosphere, often for the better.

Grace said...

I like black and white photos. They seem classier and more elegant.

tiltumaria said...

B&W photos are my favorite!

I love black and white photography. These images are gorgeous!

"Une very stylish fille" said...

Only because they are monocrome, it does not mean that a reader will find them boring. Personally, I am a BIG fan of black&white: clothes, shoes, accessories, interior design, art, photography, design etc,etc.

Best wishes,

In the old days one used to learn photography by taking B&W negatives, processing them yourself and then making enlargements with a projector and batches of stinking chemicals.
