Natalia Semanova by Peter Lindbergh in Giorgio Armani Autumn 2001 campaign
"Finding new elegance is not easy because people want to be shocked. They want explosive fashion. But explosions don't last, they disappear immediately and leave nothing but ashes."

  3. Id say not only people want to be shocked but they shock too, is what I was thinking yday while looking some photos from a fashion event. Is like the fashion week, no more elegance, just explosions of colors and madness!:) Kisses Natalia xo

  8. Peter Lindbergh is one of the most inspitional photographer to me, his work is just breathtakingly haunting, beautiful and brings out some kind of nostalgia feeling.

  9. That is such a great analogy for what a trend is, versus a classic. Wisdom from Giorgio!

  10. Все равно не все и не всегда. Я не люблю такие вот шокирующие наряды, я люблю женственность, классику и нежность. Хотя порой действительно хочется чего-то более оригинального, но не вычурного. Прекрасный снимок подобрала, Наташа!
    Хорошего дня и отличного настроения:)

  11. Such an interesting quote -- yes, I'd want a lingering elegance that lasts, instead of an explosion, fashion-wise. The photo is amazing because she's in such a sophisticated dress with her holding a papercup nonchalantly--cool, calm, and collected.

  15. No those explosions definitely don't last or leave any type of impact. Lovely image.

  16. Yes, I totally agree with this statement. It's ok to wear something explosive once in a while but I prefer to stick to elegance (at least I try).
