I have to admit, it’s been a pretty long while since I last picked up Elle magazine, or Vogue, or any of those other big name monthly glossies for that matter. I used to be an addict, every month on the release date I’d run off to the shops to buy a heap of them & then spend the day excitedly pouring over every word & image. Lately I find myself bored with them though, I’d flip through them & get to the end feeling totally unsatisfied, I hadn’t enjoyed reading it at all & so I stopped buying them.

I’m not sure what made me buy the newest issue of Elle, but I’m extremely glad I did. Yes, it’s bloated with adverts making it look deceptively chunky & no Victoria Beckham on the cover is not doing anything for me, but this one editorial made it totally worth it.

It’s so otherwordly it stopped me dead in my tracks. Xiao Wang makes the most stunning ghostly, alien like figure in the shots & the unearthly backdrop in dreamy greyed pastels gives the minimal pieces a beautiful sci-fi edge, taking them to a whole other level for me. I also, surprisingly, hadn’t come across Marcus Ohlsson‘s work before seeing this, but after spending half an hour pouring over his portfolio he’s quickly been added to the mental favourite photographers list.

    These are beautiful photos!
    I still enjoy Elle, but Vogue (US) has not been good for quite a few years now yet somehow I got sucked into a subscription from them that I didn’t want…it was cheap but I would have much rather had a year of American Elle…

      Ahh, I hate that! I actually went out & brought Vogue for about 5 months before I realised I was never even reading it (seriously!), I just put it on the pile of magazines & it stayed there, unread! Now I don’t buy it at all.

    These are really stunning, and very eye-catching photographs. I love it when something catches your eye for being so totally unique. I can’t even imagine seeing this in a copy of Elle! I haven’t read a magazine for such a long time, but I used to love spending a long time with each one too. I love the embellishment on the photograph right, second from the bottom xx

    I am the same with magazines. I usually pick them up if I know I have a long journey ahead of me rather than religiously. I follow most online though. I actually still have the latest ELLE to read that was in a goody bag. These photos are so striking! She is like a beautiful, stylish alien :) xx

    I’m a sucker for all things futuristic and these photos definitely have that vibe.. I would have never guessed they were from ELLE magazine…thanks for sharing!

    I wish my magazine addiction would go away, I’d save SO much money haha! But they’re too good not to buy, especially when there’s gorgeous editorials like this. It was my favourite in this month’s Elle, I really like the model xxx

      Yeah, me too, she totally makes this editorial for me, such a perfect choice! :)
