**be bold

The pictures below appeared in the November 2007 issue of Vogue. I'd never given Jennifer Connelly a second thought before... in 2007, thanks to the Olsen twins and Sienna Miller, I was probably too concerned with dressing boho-chic to be impressed with a bold, vibrant, and distinctly modern editorial. However, I've never been able to shake these photos out of my mind. I think the strength of these photos comes from the fact that Jennifer Connelly, with piercing eyes and straight jet black hair, is the last person you would expect to see photographed in the blaring sun on a yacht. (These kinds of scenarios are usually reserved for girls with a sun-streaked, beach-bunny look.) The unexpected choice of model + setting keeps this editorial from being cliche, and Connelly looks simply amazing. Don't you agree?

there is a specific vogue paris editorial that sicks out in my mind, from 2004. Emmanuelle alt is amazing.
