watching a model in motion

[lily+donaldson+let+there+be+light+february+V+magazine.jpg]

happy saturday!


a video of an editorial being shot is like gold dust. there is something quite mesmerising about watching an established model mould her body into pose after pose, making it look so seemingly easy. yet simultaneously proving that you have to have an imagination with the capacity of eternity to produce something that actually looks good.

in this case, it's lily donaldson modelling a hoard of SS09 pieces for V Magazine; balenciaga, margiela and the like, so all look sculpted in a pleasingly simple way.

the shoot was for the v's feburary issue, and SHOWstudio.com, which photographer Nick Knight is Director of, has dedicated a project, which is deliciously time consumming and shows the filming and behind the scenes of the editorial. you can find each of the looks broken down, as well as interviews with Nick Knight, Lily Donaldson, Sam McKnight and those involved.

click here for the time portal of a page; it'll swallow up your time!

the fantastic fantastic music is Paris - Friendly Fires ft Au Revoir Simone. Aeroplane remix. cue the sound of a thousand fingers hitting the download button!

loved this vid so much, and there's also a really graet one of agyness deyn somewhere, who i dont really love as much as i love lily, but who is just one of the most vibrant and well, active models in the busines, i think. the way she moves! i think it was aggy and craig mcdean maybe... it was a great video though, she was just laughing and jumping aruond and then instantly curved her body and pouted. like watching poetry in motion hahah!!!!

I prefer that old video of Kate Moss jumping around and then falling down. Now THAT'S a model! ;-)
