#743 Tipping the Velvet - Zippora, Stella and Queeny do lingerie


All Images /Velvet Magazine

Zippora Seven and Stella Maxwell have just shown up with fellow Viva Paris agency-mate Queeny Van Der Zande in this beautiful Velvet lingerie editorial shot by Marcus Ohlsson. The shoot has an old-world elegance - it's not about selling sex, it's about portraying grace and charm. It reminds me of a 1960s Italian movie, but with less pointy bra cups. I like the three girl formation - every shot has two facing forward, one with her back to the camera. It's very pretty. Zippora looks amazing, I think this might be the most beautiful I've ever seen her.







I LIKE YOU!

I love this. Especially the type in the top right hand corner of the second and third spreads. I love type. Plus I love knickers.

Defintely one of Zippora's best eds to date, Stella and Queeny look good too. A really delicate and beautiful editorial. Quite similar to Zippy's "Sweet Petites" ed: http://forums.thefashionspot.com/showpost.php?p=5991517&postcount=435

I love how Zippora looks here because it's so very different from the pretty pixie thing that has been the angle people generally photograph. Here she looks like an interesting, beautiful woman - I'm so glad.

Stella's legs = INCREDIBLE!

And I totally agree with Anon #4! Zippy looks like an amazingly beautiful woman there, so not like the young girl she usually is! ♥

The difference between this spread and the Lonely Hearts one is that all three of these girls have very womanly bodies, so they managed to look mature enough to pull off those lacy underwear. Their poses are also a lot milder, less suggestive than in the Lonely Hearts one. Also, the hair and makeup did a great job to age them, so they honestly don't look like young girls in age-inappropriate clothing and poses, they look like 3 beautiful young women.

The girl in the Lonely Hearts shoot looks far too young in both face and body to be in put in those suggestive poses. Maybe she isn't too young, maybe she's even older than these three girls, I don't know, but with the make-up, the hair, the cat-ear headpiece, the innocent puppy eyes, fingers on lips... she looks like a classic Lolita out to seduce men many times her age.

But hey, that's just my opinion. I'm sure there are many people who think these shots are just as bad as the Lonely Heart ones considering the fact that Zippy and Queeny are both just 17 years of age...

This is far more beautiful than the Lonely Hearts shoot! These girls look like women! they look like women in old pantings far more classy. The Lonely Hearts images look like ads for little girls not women!

oh blah blah older women vs younger women. why dont you just read a farmers catalogue if you want older shapely women! zzzzzzz new u.k mag paper planes has a 10 year old girl smoking cigarettes with her top off, we are way too conservative, bitchy and boring here. its depressing how mainstream most of the above comments are. there should be more risk takers like lonely hearts club in fashion, otherwise its all a classic snore and a bore.

Risk-taking and pro-paedophilia are two VERY different things. We're voicing our concerns towards pro-paedophilia behaviours in fashion and you're calling that conservative and boring and bitchy? Risk-takers like you care for nothing but getting yourself attention, attention and more attention at all and any cost. Oh, we'll get so much attention if we put a half-naked child on our cover, let's also put a cigarette in her mouth and maybe put her in this semi-suggestive pose, gosh, heaps of people will buy our magazine, we'll make so much money, who the f*ck cares about what might happen to that child? who the f*ck cares about what kind of unwanted attention she might receive from child porn producers and creepy paedophiles? who the f*ck care that some creeps might take her top half and photoshop it on to a naked bottom and then sell it all over the internet? ... You people just don't care, as long as you get your attention and your money... Sickening, really...

hello there is no damage to children happening here or the lonely hearts shoot; or that other shoot, for crying out loud you ravers above clearly need to read the newspapers to see what the real harm to children really is in the fine print. to even put these fantasy shoots, which editorials clearly are in the same context is disgusting and whining and plain waste of everybodys energy and time.
get a real problem PLEASE and stop making mountains out of molehills.

Z said...

I actively advocate against Child Abuse, I know what all the 'real harms' are, thank you very much! And seriously if you think it's harmless to put a half naked child with a cigarette in her mouth on the cover of some magazine, clearly you have some issues! That is just NOT okay! Never! And if that's not a real problem, I wonder what is?

And feel free to call me names or whatever you like, I don't care, but I will continue making 'mountains out of molehills' as you call it if there's even the slightest chance that it will help with the fight against paedophilia.

i don't understand how beautiful pictures degenerate into discussions about pedophilia, i mean pedophilia is a horrible horrible thing and these are beautiful pictures, (of two 17 year olds and a 19 year old).

i think Mak weinman in the Lonely Hearts shoot is 18, pedophiles meanwhile prefer pre-pubescents i believe which is under 12..and if its not the pedo discussion then its the too skinny discussion or the retouching (making women feel bad about themselves) issue, or the "they all look like clones" issue or the 'its basically porn' issue.
and people were saying this about renaissance paintings,but we still love to look at beauty and create beauty!

It turned into a pedophilia discussion because of this ridiculous comment: "oh blah blah older women vs younger women. why dont you just read a farmers catalogue if you want older shapely women! zzzzzzz new u.k mag paper planes has a 10 year old girl smoking cigarettes with her top off, we are way too conservative, bitchy and boring here. its depressing how mainstream most of the above comments are. there should be more risk takers like lonely hearts club in fashion, otherwise its all a classic snore and a bore."

And well, fashion without controversies would not be fashion at all. All the controversies and all the shameful practices (as much as I disapprove of them) are what make the fashion industry interesting and worth discussing about. It'd undoubtedly get very dull and boring eventually if all we can talk about was how beautiful the clothes and the models were.. :)
