Welcome To The Circus

I usually hate anything circus inspired (even though I dream of going to the circus and still have yet to go), but I just saw this editorial for Marie Claire Italia April 2010, I think the lighting, softness of the photos and the makeup/styling of all the outfits is beyond wonderful. I think this is the first time I've loved anything to do with fashion that is circus related.

Le Cirque
Model: Sophie Vlaming
Photographer: Wendy Bevan
Styling: Elisabetta Massari

For the whole editorial, visit here

And if any of you love this look, I suggest going to Forever 21 because they usually have something that is circus inspired, right now I would look at Twist (right now inspired by Alice in Wonderland), but the Twist collection they had called "Cirque 21" in the summer (late July) that was inspired by the circus fully. Here's some from the Cirque 21 collection:

that is a really beautiful editorial. there's an old one with jessica stam in it that's circus inspired, which i loved as well. i have to say i like a lot of things circus-inspired, especially after having seen a cirque du soleil performance (i really recommend this!!).

IM OBSESSED WITH THE CIRCUS! This post just made my day. I wish I could have bought every single F21 circus inspired piece. How do you find the foreign editorials? Google? I looove looking at them (especially circus ones). Do you remember those Juicy Couture ads from the fall with the stilt walkers and ringmasters...I nearly died they were so pretty! (ps-this obsession with circus comes from going to circus camp for like 6 years as a kid)

These are so much fun!

The last time I went to the circus, I was 9 years old and was picked out of the audience to ride in a cart that was pulled by a "unicorn" (which was really just a goat with a horn attached to the top of it's head covered in glitter). Definitely one of the most magical moments of my adolescent life.
