Amanda Murphy for Numero August 2014 by Greg Kadel.
I've really been into this editorial lately of Amanda Murphy for French Numéro Magazine August 2014 shot by Greg Kadel. It kind of makes me think of fantasy art brought to life and the styling by Bill Mullen is crazy good.
The story around this editorial is the play between animals and humanity. A lot of the details from the outfits and the headpieces are inspired by exotic animals. I love that the scaffolding in some of the outfits add a bit more depth and dimension to the photographs. The colors and prints also make everything pop out more, especially photos where the outfit and backdrop contrast. The wings add a nice dark element as do the sculptured shoulder pads, studded choker necklaces and dramatic headpieces with medusa-ish vibes.
It looks like a mystical, enchanting, sci-fi dream come to life in this months Numéro Magazine editorial. The straight-forward style in which the photos were shot make them all the more stunning. Check it out below.
