Lily Cole or Michelle Buswell


Photo credits: Poppy and Mimi Frou Frou

In one of my previous posts I mentioned the hunch pose. During my search for a good picture to use as an example, I came along both Guerlain's fragance ad and a photo from one of Lily Cole's editorial shoots. I find it amusing that both models are wearing dresses with extremely long trains that drop down from a spiral staircase.

Both are lovely and I can't seem to figure out which one I like better. Guerlain's ad is very fairy-tale like and she looks gorgeous whereas Lily Cole's picture is more on the high fashion and edgy side. I really love the set of Lily's photo, but Guerlain doesn't go wrong with their choice of a more chic and classy background. Which do you like better or are you like me and can't choose?

I prefer Guerlain, it looks more romantic and the dress seems to be more flattering, also about the light, and the location, not so clear, which gives mystery to the picture.

I love this image of Lily Cole, the colours are beautiful!

Danz said...

I think they're both stunning in different ways. The vibrant colour in the first and the high contrast lighting in the second are both dramatic. Gorgeous photos!

i think i like the one of the right, i love the lighting

Are these photos taken on the same spiral staircase? I like the fairy tale scene - it's dreamlike and real at the same time. The other is beautiful, but reminds me of a prom photo backdrop.

I love both photos. It's hard to choose, but I think I like the fairytale one better.

Thanks so much for your comment. I was out of commission for a while, sorry it took me so long to reply. I'm so happy to get comments I'm positively giddy!

I didn´t know the photoshoot of Guerlain but I prefer the Lily Cole´s, I don´t know why, maybe it´s because the contrast of colour but they are very similar.

I can't really choose either, but my what fun it would be to recreate this look!

OMG!!! I love both of them. Guerlain's ad reminds me of a spring wedding while Lily Cole's remind me of a seductive night out on the town!

Thanks for commenting on our post about luxurious shoes too!

the lily cole is my favorite. i like the contrast of the stark background with that wonderfully glamorous dress...these are both beautiful illustrations of an otherwise overplayed pose.

Ivy said...

Hmmm.. i can't decide either! It's like one's for day and the other night. If I HAD to pick otherwise someone would chop both my legs off, I'd choose Guerlain's :) Just because I love the rustic look of the building :P

roxanne said...

wow, what a similar set of pictures. i'm leaning towards the lily cole picture. the guerlain ad has a romantic and ethereal quality to it, and you can just almost see the old building in the background if you peer beyond the starry night, but i love how all the pretense has been stripped away in the other picture, and you're left with nothing but a blatant juxtaposition of glamourous beauty and dilapidated antiquity, all paint chips and dust and crumbling walls. amazing.

I've always loved that photo and just recently, I found out it was by Tim Walker and it ends up that some of my other favourite photos were photographed by him as well.
