As far as I'm concerned, this is as close to a perfect photoshoot as I've seen. I love everything about it, including Edita Vilkeviciute who is a Lithuanian model that I am sure most of you have heard of. She's 32 now, but has been working since she was 16 years old as a top fashion model.
She has since done so many campaigns, editorials, and even walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion show at least once, which is a big deal. I realize that Victoria's Secret is the mall brand, fast fashion, middle of the road mainstream brand, but I like to use them as a benchmark to mainstream appeal of a model.
Edita has worked for all the top fashion designers and brands, from Balenciaga, Chanel, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Dolce and Gabbana, Burberry, Versace, Calvin Klein and the list goes on and on, but it wasn't until the last 5-10 years those high profile luxury brands were household names to the common man.
The point is, she's a big deal and this shoot for the amazing photographer SAM HELLMAN who clearly has an amazing eye because her creative direction is incredible, at least according to me, because this has vintage California energy and that never gets boring.
It seems like this could be for a brand called L'Art du Automobile which seems pretty cool stuff so check them out.
