Amber Valletta and Shalom Harlow by Paolo Roversi in “Rainbow Warriors” British Vogue, May 1996
First of all i’m so happy when i first saw this editorial. Not just because it was shot by my favourite photographer ever but bcs it also have Amber and Shalom in it (it’s like a 90s Frigaciak if u dont know them). I was instantly grabbed by these images. I believe stylist Lucinda Chambers and photographer Paolo Roversi, wanted to get a strong and definite message across - the deep-rooted tribal goddess within females. The continued use of headresses throughout the shoot give the images that regal feel, whilst the use of flowers, feather and beads within them, suggest something more organic. I am intrigued by the power of a headress in a shoot. The status that instantly comes to a woman whilst wearing one always inspires awe from me and it is an area i would like to investigate further.
