Another editorial from Natalia's glorious past that has a holiday feel about it. I think the jewelled colours and satin sheen of the clothes give the strongest and initial impression, though I can't help recalling moments from the past when my friends and I would glam up on new years eve and then capture our efforts on one of those disposable cameras bought specifically for the occasion. The "shoot" would normally take place in a living room with a curtain as a back drop - a far cry from the glamorous images created by Meisel, but nevertheless always a highlight.

  4. Oh my, I do remember New Year's Eve photoshoots much like the one you described - although thinking back on the photos that came from them, I can't help but have a little laugh. We thought we looked like Natalia at the time, but of course we know better now ;)
