These outfit photos are from last week but definitely represent the start of summer.
It must be difficult for Vogue Germany to select one cover! Alessandra Ambrosio, Anja Rubik, Karolina Kurkova posed with their better halves for the June cover of the magazine. Which would you pick? Jamie Mazur and Alessandra Ambrosio are my favorites. I have also added my version of the cover – all natural and untouched 🙂

I am so thankful to Diane von Fürstenberg for bringing the wrap dress to light back in the day. I prefer it when the skirt is more fitted, just like on the pics of my friend Nadia. I hope you like them!
I am looking forward to the weekend, as I have planned some shopping and laying out by the pool (not my own pool, mind you).
I know we all have them (inspirational posts) – but we can’t do without them either. For me, this editorial is brilliant on several levels: photography, editing, modeling, ambiance and setting, styling… The editorial of Arlenis Sosa for the May 2011 issue of the Spanish magazine Yo Dona (“The Lady”-I think) was styled by Amparo Utrilla and shot by Miguel Reveriego. What I like the most is how this beautiful Dominican born model dons a different look on every photo – sexy, classy, playful, peaceful, sophisticated…
