You can’t imagine how happy I am to show you these photos.
I shot them in June for Vogue Brazil. In Rio, to be exact, in the neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Viviana (who was the stylist for the editorial) had been trying to convince me to go shoot there for months but all I could think of when I thought of Rio was…Ipanema.
Viviana kept saying to me, “Oooooh but Garance, aren’t you tired of The Girl from Ipanema? Santa Teresa is a whole new place, a totally different feel for Rio! You have to come shoot here!!!” Vivianna has a strong opinion.
But Viv too.
So I finally gave in. And you know what? Sometimes it’s good to give in. Not only was Viv right about having to shoot in that part of town, but look at that styling!
The look in the photo above is my favorite. I’ve said it before but I LOVE THIS KENZO SWEAT SHIRT and this mix of neck accessories, scarf and jewelry together ?
I’m such a fan.
Conclusion = It’s so great to work with someone you know and love.
Seriously though! Look at this Mary Katrantzou dress!!!
On top of that, we got a chance to work with Lais Ribeiro, who is a Brazilian top model and who’s as sublime as she is cool.
So yeah, it was such a dreamy shoot.
In a few hours, I’ll show you a few more photos and we’ll talk about the hair-bands!
A big thank you to the whole team at Vogue Brazil, to Lais and of course, the always wonderful Viviana.
