The Office

October 11th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (23)

Charlotte Di Calypso is trapped at the office; Miles Aldridge casts the willowy blonde beauty as a bored corporate drone in Vogue Italia. Drowned in a sea of beige and looking aloof, Charlotte drinks from the water cooler, sorts through files and rests against the Xerox all while posing perfectly. Perhaps a little too perfect – is our heroine an idealized worker or is she simply robotic? Aldridge uses his surreal style to great effect and the flawless makeup by Lloyd Simmonds adds to the artificial feel of the pictures, as does the slick monochromatic styling by Cathy Kasterine.

    cute

  8. Tyler Neal says:

    I think the blank stares adds to the overall feeling of the editorial. She’s portraying a boring, overworked woman who goes to work each day in an uninspiring office. Charlotte did a great job in this editorial.

    It’s so boring, I love Aldridge’s style and Charlotte is a very elegant girl, but this is just zzzzz.

    I thought she was made of wax; that it was a dummy. If it’s done on purpose, it’s ok with me. Thanks, Claude

    I generally don’t like Charlotte so much, not at all actually… but… well, don’t ask me why ’cause I honestly have no idea, but I kind of like this. :)

  14. Cora says:

    Everything is very good except for her expression: Her face looks the same in every shot…

  15. Hannah says:

    Imagine the pain of posing in a leather outfit at a 90degree angle pretending to look through files.

  16. Irene says:

  17. Mimi says:

    technically excellent photography, really love the subtle lighting, tones, color…but the blank stares just don’t work for me (probably would be better in a studio situation)!

    You people don’t get it! She is supposed to look bored and blank! That’s the point of the editorial. She did a great job.

  21. Boogie says:
