Floral Dreams

Doesn't this Elle Vietnam (January 2013) photoshoot look peaceful? Pretty flowers. Gorgeous clothes. Serene and peaceful water. It's called "Floral Dreams" and features models Yue Han, Jin Chen Hong & Jay Shin. It was styled by Phuong My (models are wearing Giorgio Armani, Prabal Gurung and Herve Leger) & lensed by Bobby Nguyen. The models look sooooo at ease. I'm trying to imagine myself doing this shoot. It would not be peaceful at all. HaHaHa Mine would be called "Floral Nightmare"! I would need nasonex for allergies (flowers)...bug spray...sunscreen...a hat...paddles or better yet a motor in case the little canoe drifts away...and ummm...are there any crocodiles here? chomp chomp. LOL Can you tell I'm not an outdoorsy kinda girl? HaHaHa Have a serene & peaceful day everybody!

I need that scenery right now! It's cold and snowy here in Ohio, so I would love to be floating in that boat right now :) Heather

I'm just over contemplating your previous post, and here's another gem! It really looks peaceful, luscious and exotic. And Kim, I'm not and outdoorsy girl either :-)) kisses and hugs

TheTinyHeart said...

Haha Kim! I'm not an outdoorsy girl either! It does look like a gorgeous place to be though (as long as I don't need to row the boat) :)

Carole Poirot said...

Beautiful! All those flowers and colours are stunning and you're right: the models really do look serene - far more than I would in that situation ;-)

Megan said...

What a serene, gorgeous setting! Love these photos. And haha, Kim you totally made me laugh with "Floral Nightmares".

Hiya Kim,
Oooh I was swooning for Spring with these photos. They are so pretty with all the florals. It's a good prelude of spring bloom during the cool winter days. I share your sentiment about the allergies too though. LOL!

Hope you have a fab week love!


Unknown said...

Haha :D Very funny post :D
I'm sure somebody is holding the canoe ^^
Anyway.. great pics I think :)

xoxo, Nina

Dawn said...

Kim this is so funny, I love the chomp chomp. Although I spend time in the woods and outdoor parks, I am always on the lookout for some wild animal or crazy bug coming at me. I would need all the things that you listed too. The shoot is a beauty and now I need an old boat for shoots. Have a great day. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

Love natural elements in this editorial. The sun, the trees, the warm water and everything tropical want me to escape from winter wonderland here!!! If only i had enough vacation and money, i would book my flight asap, girl.

You are too funny Kim. I would be panic trying to stabilize on the boat, definitly not going to look as graceful as these models.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

The editorial does indeed look so serene and so pretty. I had to chuckle at your version cause that would be me too. I'm a total city girl and I like it that way lol :)

I just realized I need to get a new table for Rena & Ian to have a tea party. I forgot their last table broke. Boo!
