Barbara Fialho For Elle Brazil

It’s a simple reality that sometimes the ongoing trend of nudity in fashion is about selling sex. But it’s not always the case. Often it’s about beauty: the beauty of a healthy body, of a glowing golden tan, of the qualities that stir up desire or envy or simply appreciation. Barbara Fialho in Elle Brazil is one of those beauties.

A Star's Outfits with Drew Barrymore

In this shoot featuring Drew Barrymore they’ve pulled together outfits that work every aspect of a star’s life from the red carpet to rehearsals. Yes they’ve even pulled out the cliche Director’s Chair pose. But cliches aside it’s a theme that works, and the outfits are all high-impact with vibrant fall 2011 colours.

A darkened sensuality

We’ve long been fans of the work of photographer Nicolas Guerin. His are photos shoots that are rich in detail, that evoke, that draw you in and let your mind wander.
Following on from his rock-edged Into The Wild pictorial, we’ve now secured you a look at Guerin’s work for the 5th issue of Glint magazine – Amour du noir.

Let's Go Nude... With The Burberry Nude Collection

Given the racy nature of its barely dressed video and print campaign with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, you'd expect the new Burberry Body fragrance to inspire a line of, well, cold showers.

Instead, it's the first scent to spawn its own ready-to-wear clothing collection, aptly called Burberry Nude. Available for purchase now, the offerings include several reworkings of the classic camel trench coat — from a feminine jacquard number with a bow-tied waist to versions in fur, buttery-soft leather, and glossy satin.

Adele Covers British Vogue's October Issue

Adele is the cover star of the October issue of Vogue. A celebration of all that has come to define the modern English woman, the magazine profiles some of the country's most successful and completely unique female names - from Adele and author Diana Athill to Amy Childs.

"Our cover girl, Adele, has won over the world with her heartbreaking voice and her ability to seem as if she very much herself," says Alexandra Shulman in her editor's letter. "One of the interesting facts of celebrity is that we, the admirers, usually find some particular aspect of our favourite stars to focus on and that generally become 'the point of them'. We like them to be a certain way, and often take a long time to accept any change. So Adele's very normality, her down-to-earth determination not to compromise herself, has become as much a part of her USP as, for example, Madonna's constant, deliberate reinvention."

A new perspective

Thigh high splits, over the knee boots, selectively placed furs and blazers. Each are about perspective. Particular angles can detract from the effect, others can heighten it in any number of ways. Despite this, the majority of photo shoots tend to concentrate on each statement element from the same perspective – thigh high splits, for instance, are nearly always photographed with their wearer in motion, revealing a flash of thigh.
The Michael Kors photo shoot in the September issue of Interview magazine changes all that. It changes the perspective, sexually charging each statement. And deservedly so: each of these fashion elements is crafted around the sensuality of the body.
