Eye Candy : Unspoken Desire

 Vs. Magazine SS 2014, Wong Kar Wai In The Mood For Love

This atmospheric editorial inspired by Wong Kar Wai's  In the Mood for Love pays an elegant tribute to the deeply stirring tale of love and longing portrayed in the film. Models Li Xiaoling and Zhao Lei stylishly channel the roles played by Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu Wai while showcasing looks from Jason Wu,Yigel Azrouel, Rodarte, Armani and Tom Ford. In the Mood for Love is one of my favorite movies that I'd totally recommend watching if you've never seen it. It is an absolute visual and cinematic treat. There is also a gorgeous short fashion film that accompanies this editorial.

  1. I love it!
    The woman looks so sexy and attractive, and the guy reminds me of the young Tony Leung Ka Fai.

  5. Hi Rowena! I didnt know the movie so I watched the clip you shared, it must be very intense, engaging and romantic. And so is the editorial, the models put in the scene the same feelings, the fashion film is full of passion and is also very glam, loving her make up and hair. Im fascinated by Asian culture and my dream is traveling over there one day :) Have an amazing weekend my dear, many hugs! xo

  14. Beautiful editorial and I watched the film...so dreamy and sexy! The place where they shot it reminds me of a place I use to go to in Seattle. It was so cool and had the most exotic drinks.

  24. ah yes! Most definitely inspired by the movie. Love that film tremendously, especially the performances by the two heavy weights, like you said, intensely rich in terms of visual styles as well as emotions by the characters. At times, watching a Wong Kar Wai's film suffocates you to a point, yet releases a certain bottled up emotions that may come with going through the ride that the characters bring you onto. It also reminds me of the film by Tom Ford's A Single Man, which I really love too *_^

    As for the editorial, some pics work for me, some not really, nonetheless, it does manage to pull off that look and feel from the film, effectively.

    Hope you will be enjoying your weekend soon! Big hugs

  33. As always, you always share the most gorgeous editorial. When I saw the first picture, I thought of Wong Kar Wai's In the Mood for Love... seriously! And there you go, it's all inspired from there. I love the whole dark oriental feel. I've not watched this movie before but I've read about it and I think I've to put it on my must-watch list.

    BTW, I've replied your comments on my blog, Rowena. But I won't be copying and pasting them here since I've missed out on replying for too many posts and it would be loooooooooooong. Do check back when you're free.
