Mile long legs stretched delicately across a thousand threads of Egyptian cotton, lanky stunner Carleen Laronn tosses a tumbling cascade of chestnut locks over one shoulder. Punctuated by the dazzling gleam of an intricate bauble, her long neck line bends elegantly away from the daring plunge of a balconette. Through smokey eyes, Carleen smiles coyly into the frame of photographer Dana Pennington. In every direction, opulence accents the setting. Flanked by an indulgent oasis of classic glamor, our model is pinned up in (and stripped down to) frothy lace, strapping elastic and sky high stilettos. With champagne chilling on ice, pleasure was paramount in the creation of this sultry series; which is an aspect, reflected effortlessly throughout the images. The artist finesses a familiar rapport with his subject; and in doing so, he captures so much more within his creation, than just Carleen’s enviable aesthetic. Exclusively for Satiety Paper #4…we are not the only ones ‘Courting Desire’. Enjoy!

To compliment our, already extremely delectable, additions to the Spring Fling issue of Satiety Paper, nothing was more fitting than incorporating another ‘Perfect 10’. The thanks for this gorgeous feature goes to Libertine and Satiety Paper alum, Erik Tranberg. An original and constant source of inspiration since the birth of the Libertine, Erik routinely turns out memorable and heavy hitting imagery; worthy of wallpapering our entire office in the prints! For Satiety Paper #4, Erik requisitioned the up-and-coming Russian sensation, Lada Kravchenko (who has worked with such infamous photographic talents as David Bellemere, Herring + Herring, and Filippo Del Vita – to name a few) as his muse and partner in crime. With her naturally sultry aura and unrelentingly perfect figure, Lada could easily steal a screen of any size; making this collection even more punchy for our paper. Erik surpasses his past triumphs with this new editorial, fit for the likes of Victoria’s Secret. Sleek black leather mixed with modern, structured under-pinnings…miles of smooth skin, tousled hair and a sharp pair of smoky eyes…strike an opulent chord for the story’s undertone. The results of this partnership are quite positively…picture perfect. Enjoy!

In a whole new kind of exclusive, we get to bring you a game-changing talent, that cannot be found anywhere else in the fashion world. Here at Satiety Paper, we are unable to suspend our disbelief that this mind-blowing beauty, Elle Bowman, isn’t wallpapering the industry!!! Discovered for this piece by exploding visual artist, Benjamin Askinas, Elle is one of the most unique, captivating and womanly subjects that we have ever had the privilege of featuring. Her supple curves are unrelenting; her soft, doe-eyed features are stunning from each and every angle…and the ease with which she inhabits her gorgeous body is virtually supernatural. We wouldn’t have the pleasure of reveling this new feminine phenomenon to our readership, if it weren’t for Benjamin’s exceptional aesthetic precision, that pinpointed something very special in her. Benjamin (who has previously contributed flawless, female portraiture to our Paper) has bestowed upon Satiety, the honor of introducing this private and personal peek into a moment of unabashed indulgence; with the kind of astonishing seductress, that most of us will never share a shower with. The warm elegance of the images lends an intoxicating tone to the editorial; and lends such effortless fluidity, as is the characteristic trademark of Benjamin’s work. There could hardly be a more complimentary collaboration of skill, vision and execution. Enjoy!

Satiety Paper welcomes striking fresh face Kelly Gillespie, and burgeoning fashion photographer Kalan Briggs to our cohort of industry game changers. This editorial, is so simple on the surface, but the depth and intensity that is captured between the artist and his subject, goes so much farther than the superficial beauty that one can appreciate with a passing glance. ‘Pure as the Driven Snow’ is a clean, studio set, with basic wardrobe by stylist Erin Walsh and beautifully bare grooming. The hallmark of some of the best talents, is to create magic without pretense, and this collaboration fits that bill perfectly. Enjoy!

‘Boudoir’, by our long time favorite Adolfo Valente, completes the final additions to our smouldering Winter edition (#3) of Satiety Paper. The editorial, starring extraordinary, dusky stunner, Mihaela Rusu , is a blends a smooth balance of expert artistry and feminine wiles. Not only does Adolfo capture a sweet tenderness within his models…he has a keen eye for casting uniquely beguiling beauties as well. This warm interior piece, set in an updated rustic loft space, flatters the tones of muted sex appeal and voyeurism that are naturally denoted in intimate, nude portraiture. The model-focused composition and natural lighting harmonize with those dynamics and result in a lovely whimsicality. Mihaela manages to lend complex energies to the images, while exuding complete confidence and candor. The story makes us want to curl up on and overcast day with some poetry, a good wine and tender friend. Enjoy!

“Dizzying” would be an understatement, one would agree, after full acceptance of Cassandra Smith’s almost careless, yet engaging presence in these shots. Photographer Tyrone Lavigne captures her easy vacillation from one emotion to the next in an absolute wash of delicious flavors; leaving the viewer curious and crazed, exhausted in the most vivacious of ways, much like a muscle beaten to strength after a gratifying day of hard work. Drawn to devour, when we catch the glinting spark in her eyes (in such precious few of these fleeting moments), the viewer is at once confronted with the craving to understand the muse, and the realistic futility of that desire…creating a deliciously fervent frustration! There’s a subtle restlessness in our model, as she bares the beauty of her energy… giving it up to us to toil with. The stunning series solicits a compulsion to know her fully, and the hope that one could stand in the flame, unburned, by succeeding. I love the flirtatious elegance of this excellent collaboration. Enjoy!
