Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Some of these are real works of art

Haute World said...

Gorgeous editorials! Very dramatic and inspiring.. I love the last two especially!

Shop T.O. Live said...

That is such an interesting concept. I wonder why fashion would glamourize loneliness? ...maybe to add a little bit of drama and evoke empathy ...?

Petra Bellejambes said...

Chere Carrie

When you go for the more abstract theme and take on a bigger editorial challenge, the more your imagination is on display.

This sort of slightly out of the ordinary post is a real delight. I can practically feel all the wildly firing neurons going off in your pretty head.

Have a splendid day, and go look better than all the other girls...

xoxoxo - Petra

Nina said...

These editorials are evocative of social outcastness and loneliness ... successful in that sense, right?!

nicole said...

abbey lee's hair looks amazing in that first photo!

B a la Moda said...

Each of them evokes something different, but probably isolation (seriously, I didn´t read the title!) or sadness.

Imogen said...

These pictures evoke a sense of style with a twist. Maybe unconventional since it is unique and out there. I really like them.

Ashley said...

that's a special picture collecion

Chrisy said...

I'd love to be as odd as these beauties! A really interesting post honey...thank you...

Pratishtha Durga said...

Isolation and fashion go hand in hand. Isn't style about being one of a kind and being away from the crowd? In true style, we stand alone, and hence the element of isolation.

I love these images. Thanks for sharing.

Bhavesh Chhatbar said...

Yes, isolation perfectly expressed!

Sometimes human beings need to feel Isolation for themselves.

I'm often obsessed with the person like an Isolated Beauty and a Lone Wolf.
