Eye Candy : Acte de Grace


Spring looks to be in bloom in Manhattan in this charming editorial photographed by Frances Tulk-Hart for Air France Madame magazine, which reimagines model Sam Rayner as a modern day princess a la Grace Kelly complete with ladylike fashions befitting a royal. Wouldn't it be just fabulous to pose in a lovely dress amidst the flowers on Park Avenue? It's finally starting to feel a little more Spring-like as the temperatures are actually reaching the 60's in NYC today. Have a fantastic week everyone!

That first dress is so dreamy. I am so over with black color now that winter was the past. Time for colors and more colors.

I am glad to hear you get to know Texas more, Rowena. Like you, i had no clue what i got myself into prior to moving here. The only things i knew about Texas were cowboys, horses, western movies and desert..haha. Really i have grown to love Houston more. You inspired me to write a new post ;)

Rowena, this is one of the prettiest spring photoshoots I've seen so far! Every single picture screams summer glamour to me, making me yearn for sunshine, short skirts and no winter boots! Thank you so much for this wonderful inspiration!

Rambles with Reese said...

I can't say I dig any of the outfits, however, I love N.Y. and flowers!! :-))

hope in high heels said...

these are so gorgeous... I love that the styling is a little more feminine, softer and different to what you usually see photographed on the NYC streets.

Hope you're going well lovely xx
