It happened again. I have come across yet another editorial that was clearly “inspired” by something from the recent past. I just wonder why somebody would want to do that and how a magazine editor could happily sign off something that bears such an obvious resemblance to the Vogue shoot, particularly something so distinctive, so unmistakably Camilla Arkans? Beyond me, to be honest.

On the other hand the recent story from Marie Claire Spain is a perfect example that every successful editorial starts with a vision and requires real talent, not just a model, guy with a camera and a few bales of straw.

  2. HaHaHa! I'm going to start calling you the editorial fashion police diva. HAHAHAHA You know what! You bring up some excellent points. I feel nowadays they are recycling EVERYthing! The movies, tv shows, music and now THIS. I never thought it would happen with FASHION though. It's really sad! They can't think of anything else? Nothing unique?

  3. I love that sweet ruched dress 3 images down and am really loving how brides are taking more risks to have unique outfits that are less bridal-y.

  4. Wow, total deja vu! It's flattering when someone can take inspiration, but when it becomes literal, it just isn't awe-inspiring! Great post love!
