One Out of Nine Muses

In all of my limited experience with fashion and fashion photography, I have never had my breath taken away faster than by Hedi Slimane's fashion photography. Originally, for me, it was the models (who are admittedly gorgeous and so effortlessly cool) that led me there, as I would mainly use fashion photos as fodder for figure poses. But through the years his photos have stuck with me.

My easy favorite is his editorial from September 2008 called "London British Youth." It appeared in Dazed and Confused. The photos really capture the candid, devil-may-care beauty of youth. And I, who as a little girl dreamed of London and still do, was ensnared by the charm.
