We will all laugh at gilded butterflies...

As a writer and a thinker, I owe a lot to one Mr. William Shakespeare. As an English major in college, it was difficult to get through undergrad without studying at least one of his works (I took several classes dedicated to one or two of his works at a time). Consider this editorial as a take on Beauty and the Bard. Can you believe all of the pieces in these images are modern? Model Ashley Smith, photographed by Sharif Hamza for Vogue Russia, wears modern-day period pieces by the likes of Agent Provocateur, Atelier Versace and Valentino Haute Couture. Indulge + enjoy!

  1. Hey Love, love your style... i would love for you to join are new site.. BLOGARITHM.net

  2. These images are quite amazing. I was lucky my father "made me" read Shakespeare when I was about 10 years of age. Of course, I had no clue what I was reading. However, later in life I re-read most of the work and I totally fell in love with it. Great post.


Merci beaucoup!
