Skyrocketing young talent, Yara Khmidan, mesmerizes readers in this gorgeous studio series from photographer Alex Muccilli for Satiety Paper’s spring edition. Yara is a sensual stunner in smoldering, earthy beauty palettes and a tumbling cascade of healthy, flowing locks. She dons an array of frothy and silken neglige with the ease of a second skin; and exposes the vulnerability of her femininity with comfortable confidence. The sometimes cool/ sometimes warm periwinkles, lavenders and indigos are a serene compliment to Yara’s cinnamon and nutmeg complexion. The clean composition of the imagery allows the subject to wholly dominate the focus of each frame, without competition. Reminiscent of the classic Victoria’s Secret boudoir shoots from iconic photographer Russell James; this set is pretty enough for hanging as a focal point in large, luxurious prints. Enjoy!
L.A. based fashion photographer Michael Barr may be known more for his funky, care-free editorial work than he is for beauty shots; but that’s all about to change. In his latest photo-spread, Michael paired up with unique beauty Jennifer McManis, as well as beauty pros Mathias Alan (Makeup) and Nahid Alipour (Hair) to create a flawless evolution from ‘simple and clean’ looks, to ‘devilishly daring’. Jennifer sports a range of distinctive looks, designed to inspire some summer fun for the average lady looking to shake it up a bit! Enjoy!
