I am reaching back to summer for this ‘shoot because it was so mind-blowing and such a year highlight that I *need* to cover it! My deepest apols for being so far behind, but if you haven’t seen this ‘shoot from Charlotte, you simply can’t go on existing without taking a gander. And if you have seen it, I hope you enjoy it one more time :). I’ll be posting a few other sets this weekend as well because yes, we will be doing the Silver Snaps this year (really!)..and maybe a few other fun surprises as well, depending on my all-too-rare free time.
Charlotte represented the Lady Superstars in this year’s edition of the ESPN Body issue and made serious waves while doing so! As per the theme for the ‘shoot, she was photographed au naturel in the venue of her sport. While I hesitate to call a nude photoshoot classy, these snaps were done in a super-creative way that preserves the edgy vibe while not over-sharing. There’s no doubt Char has one of the most amazing bodies in the business, but these snaps manage to go beyond the simple highlighting of the beauty of the human body and capture her flexibility, strength and athleticism. Her facials are flawless: serious, determined, authentic, and they’re highlighted by her barely-there make-up, which creates a stripped-down vibe that makes it feel as if you’re truly seeing the person and not the character. The ‘shoot comes off raw and artistic, far more than sensual, though it has an element of that as well. Her long flowing hair and the misty lighting give a hint of softness that balances her stern expressions and chiseled body. The Lady Superstars have worked hard to separate themselves from the fluffy, eye-candy aspects of Divadom and to show themselves as genuine athletes. Charlotte succeeds brilliantly in conveying that here, despite the sexy premise of the ‘shoot. In theory, this type of set should not be my cup of tea, but I’m in for it. Stellar work, Char!
