Lana absolutely SLAAAYS her Team Russia set, in which she pairs a DIY-halter soccer shirt with denim shorts. I think it’s her hair style that really takes these snaps into high gear – this 80’s-esque voluminous side part looks divine in her, both sensual and fierce! Her palest peach lip shade is the perfect accompaniment, giving a glacial sharpness to her look that gives high drama to her look. Since its Lana, there must be a bit of shine (a girl after my own heart :) <3), so she’s added a slim braided belt and a pair of slim chains at her neck. Her black choker coordinates with her strappy sandal-booties which, although I would have preferred if she had chosen one shade or the other of fishnet sock, there is no denying are incroyable. She shows restraint in her poses, not pushing them too hard, and the result is spectacular: a sexy, mysterious vibe with an athletic undertone that, in aggregate, has a massive visual impact akin to being on the receiving end of a goal kick.
Paige represented Great Britain in an artfully torn and pinned soccer jersey – I love the way the side pin creates pretty gathering and movement! She paired it with medium wash denim cut-off shorts , accessorized with a black leather belt and black cuffs. Lace-up OTK boots round out the look. This set of snaps creates a darker take on the sporty theme than Paige’s previous, more lighthearted ventures into this genre and it works fabulously! She does a killer job on the poses as well, conveying intensity and focus, spiced up with a dash of sensuality. But perhaps my very favorite aspect of this ‘shoot is her make-up. Paige has an instinct for using palettes that enhance the vibe she’s creating and this one underscores the noir drama of this set via dark cranberry lips and a bold, smoky eye that reveals a fun plot twist: glittering silver lids. I love everything about it! Paige may have been away from ‘shoots for awhile, but clearly she hasn’t lost her touch!
Peyton and Billie lent their BBF lens to the soccer-theme, supporting Australia in gorgeous yellow jerseys ( you knew I would love those, right? ;)), chopped to a crop length. They also added matching asymmetric hems and I love the offbeat 90’s-meets-now vibe those create! Billie kept her look simple, pairing it with navy high-waisted shorts, knee-high fishnets and to-the-knee black leather boots. Peyton took her look in an edgier direction, with full-length fishnet hosiery. I could have done without seeing it stick out of the top of her white shorts, but those fierce af peeptoe bootie make up for that! I love the bold, fashion vibe melded to this sporty theme! I’m also in for the pretty silver tasseled cord belt – the extra texture works well and it cements the fashion-meets-athletic feel of the ‘shoot. I’m also a fan of the ladies’ work in terms of their poses here: they gel nicely, conveying the BFF qualities, but also explore some new ground and manage to walk a rare and tantalizing line between haute editorial and serious athlete that leaves me wanting more. Excellent work, ladies!
