Arlenis Sosa For Yo Dona May 2011

Dominican model Arlenis Sosa posed in tropical swimwear for Yo Dano May 2011 issue.  Stylist Amparo Utrilla used simple styles with colorful printed accessories and jewels to give life to the shoot.  I really like the camera angles photographer Miguel Reveriego took too.

Images From Beyonce’s African Inspired Shoot For L’Officiel Magazine March 2011 Issue

Behind the scenes video:

These are some images I found of  Beyonce’s African inspired photo shoot for L”Officiel Magazine, in their March 2011 issue.  Not all the images are posted because for some reason no one has the full shoot. So, I decided to share what I had. 

The big bold jewelry are my favorite aspects of the shoot.  Recognize the Gucci dress from the cover here? It was beautiful on that model and now on Bey.

America's Next Top Model Hawaiian Shoot

I was watching 2009 edition of America’s Next Top Model when I was blown away with the concept of the shoot taken in Hawaii.   After the show I started googling it and was pleased to find photos from the shoot on MidSeasonReplacement.com 

During the shoot Tyra combined two ethnicities for the models to portray. Below are my favorite.

First up is Jennifer whose skin is painted darker to transform her into a Botswana and Polynesian woman. 

Second is model Brittney, who portrays a Native American and Indian woman. You can’t really tell by the picture, but the dress and the trim around the head-piece has beautiful embroidery.

Nicole represents a woman from Madagascar mixed with Japanese. The straw neck pieces is a nice touch to her kimono.
