PINK & BLACK...
When I style a boudoir session, I often turn to two of my favorite lingerie designers for inspired looks... LaPerla and Agent Provocateur. In my opinion, they are the couture of the bedroom... and truly know how to make a women look bold and feminine at the same time.
The dark mysterious blacks paired with sugary pink satin shows both sides of a modern woman to perfection. When shooting sessions styled in this fashion, I love the low-key softness I can reveal with the muted tone and the contrast the black accents provide. I shoot her in soft light but with dramatic shadow falling off into the mystery of the moment. It really makes a woman's physique stand out, as she is outlined by the contrast of these fashion details.
Ideally, I think this is a look well-suited for my raven-haired clientele. This styling really brings her features to life and showcases her beauty ... not simply the lingerie. While some of my fair blonde maidens have immortalized this look, it can also tend to be too much contrast for their softer features.
My hair and makeup artist Miranda will often pair this type of look with deep, dramatic eyes, boldly arched brows and a very defined lip (whether that is deep/dark or glossy pinks is custom to each client).
All in all, this fantastic and rich ensemble is perfect for the client looking for that mixture of bold and elegant to reveal the many sides of her Etoile.
