Bert Stern’s photographs of the young actress Sue Lyon as Lolita made an impact on the fashion world that is still felt today. This beautiful editorial by the photographer of bombshell Eva Herzigova show off the looks of those iconic photographs, girl-next-door things like cardigans, gingham, denim with knitwear and lots of innocent but seductive lingerie. Mixed with some referencing to Andre de Dienes’s early photographs of Marilyn Monroe, this is a beautiful, sensual editorial that remains timeless and inspirational.
Beautiful French actress Adèle Exarchopoulos, of Blue is the Warmest Color fame, is the star of this new editorial by up and coming photographer Olivia Bee for February’s Harper’s Bazaar Germany. Clad in Dior, Adèle exudes natural charm, sensuality and sweetness in these gauzy, retro-influenced pictures. Check out more of this photographer’s work here on her blog.
And, hey, why not this great little editorial of Natalie Dormer from this month’s Nylon by Zoey Grossman?

Gigi is a perfect Guess girl – a sweet faced, curvaceous bombshell who is endlessly fun to look at. Let’s look at her now!
