La cage aux folles

La cage aux folles - a photo editorial featured in Elle Magazine (June 2008 issue) dedicated to the eclectic style, so in fashion these past few seasons. Bold color combinations, different prints and textures; say a sheer, silk voile blouse teamed with a neoprene skirt. The key to a perfect styling is to handle fashion with studied nonchalance for an effortlessly chic look. Oh, and also consider a crazy up-do.

The location chosen for this photo shoot was a renovating building and the fashion editor decided that the pictures should include the painters/constructors team. The result is quite funny, showing how crazy high-fashion looks in real world. By the way, the short guy in foreground is killing me; he's so hilarious!
