Valerija Kelava | Vogue Italia Oct. 2010 by Damien Neva

Ford’s Valerija Kelava features in Vogue Italia Oct. 2010 in a solo story by Paolo Roversi. Titled “A Poetic Winter” the styling by Jacob K draws entirely from the Ralph Lauren F/W 10 collection, which of course is heavy on printed silks and the odd tweed jacket thrown in for good measure. Roversi’s signature muted color resonates with the shorter days and longer nights of winter and thus limit the bloom of the printed georgette solely to its decorative role. Winter, surely. Poetic, unquestionably. Paolo Roversi, masterly. Valerija Kelava, beautifully.

I can’t wait to look past the clothes to see the background. The ghost of photo shoots past.

Valerjia with long hair looks better and more feminine she has a strong features that needs so soften her face…
I like the clothes.

Comment by syssi

– it looks drab -dark and depressing – with the back drop and the dark fashion – i hope its trendy -because -with the winter comming and the economy collapsing – a dark unhappy -concerned and wooried high end fashion industry this does represent – the model did her job she was wonderfull – the close lok like – roma gypsy serbian – polish -rural village-wear . please next time -less gothic – more make up and mor colorfull . :} jus my opinion ….c/c pen name -real name daniel .

Yes I agree with Daniel..more colorful,less gothic production..so it gives a less depressing environment..
that helps sell the product..not feel in a dark mood…
The model only does her job…and she did transmitt,
what the production team wanted..

I also agree with what Sissi commented,and I would like to add that the great looks of Valerija,is not being sufficiently exploited (not meaning,I do not value the great job,the makeup & hairstyle artists have done ),but she needs to look more femenine & not so androgine by softening her strong facial features.
Maybe changing her haircolor to almond or honey and using light brown tones for her eyes and light tones
for cheek & lips,& avoiding the eyeliner,would help
in that direction…

the fashion designer may wish to incorporate indian fashion like south asian sarongs or silk hindu ladys toga type wear with bangles and tassles -beads and fringes -or possibly like aghan – exotic dancer outfits .i know the sytle is – eastern european – but consider – it does look darb dark and cold -wich makes one feel cold and dark and emotionless -perhapps depressed and uncarring “average ” but ” classy average ” -yes the model does have strong features but it actually adds to the clothes she models . again she did a wondeerful job of depiction of a wearer.
