The Life Aquatic

is what I wish for right now, it's actually muggy enough to make me want to grow gills, hop into a pool of something cold and liquid, and not emerge till October. Or maybe it's not the heat so much as the following editorial out of Numéro Tokyo Issue 15..
Greek nymphs and gauzy curtains are what I think of when I look at this..
I think this might be just about the most perfect dress to swoon in.
This looks to me like a white nautilus going through outer space, more than water.
I wasn't sure just what I thought of this dress on the runway, but it turns out its rainbow bird-of-paradise glory seems to be best viewed underwater. It's either some really good retouching or the amazing saturated colour that makes it that way..
For some reason (probably the way the purple and white circles look in the centre), this shot strikes me as positively orchidaceous.

So gorgeous, I am in love with the second one with the sprawling dress, it's almost epic.
The last one reminds me of a kiwi :)

Enthralling images. The last is very flower-esque.

Serious beautiful photos! If they had those in poster size, I'll frame it and put it on my wall. Just gorgeous

It took me a moment to realize that last photo *wasn't* supposed to be an orchid. Very Georgia O'Keefe.

Thanks for the tip about Audrey Tatou! She looked gorgeous as usual and she did have an element of costume about her because of the cape-like upper half.

they are indeed pretty especially that second one with the red flower prints. the fluidity does make me long for a cooler temperature...

Wow, these shots are so beautifully haunting! I can't even imagine what it would be like trying to do a photo shoot under water!
