Muse Moment

October 12th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (18)

Paolo Roversi has found a muse in Valerija Kelava, the duo’s second editorial collaboration of the month (take a look at their first in Man About Town)  is a moody tale in Vogue Italia. Roversi captures the haunting quality of Valerija’s look perfectly with his ethereal photos and stylist, Jacob K, adds a touch of wintry beauty via the lush selection of richly textured pieces.

  4. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    Valerija is the perfect example of the model… well, not my fav kind of model, but I like her a lot. Here too for sure.
    PS stupid annotation: first thing came to mind as I saw these has been “Caterina Ravaglia 5 years from now”. Well, actually… yep, you know, just “first thing came to my mind”… 🙂

    I have to say, I’m a huge fan of Valerija Kelava. She has such an amazing look. She always does amazing in editorials and I keep feeling this Guinivere Van Seenus quality about her performance every time. She manages to look mysterious, seductive and otherworldly, and on top of that, she has a great presence on the runway.
    I really hope the best for her, and I hope I don’t get tired any time soon.

    it’s gorgeous. love the concept

  12. carola says:

    She’s great but looks so much like Diana Dondoe, why just not bring Diana D back into high-end fashion stuff?

  13. D. says:

    I didn’t see why Valerija has gotten so much attention, but I’m starting to like her more and more. Kelava and Roversi is a good combo. He manages to soften her strong look.

  14. Mathew says:

    that first picture is to DIE for. I would frame that.

  15. Irene says:

    She looks so soft and perfect!

  16. Nigel S. says:

    How I love Valerija… She’s a true star.

    Diana Dondoe did a few hot spot shows this season, I believe Ungaro was one. You can perhaps soon expect her back in High-Fashion print.
