Harper's Bazaar UK enlists fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski to capture this romantic editorial titled 'Madame Butterfly' starring supermodel Magdalena Frackowiak for their June 2014 issue ...
Originally a short story by John Luther Long, 'Madame Butterfly' is a tragic tale of heartbreak and woe. However, Frackowiak looks the furthest thing from a woman scorned in these images. In fact, she appears to be particularly jovial and lighthearted as she passes time in a well-lit greenhouse.
Miranda Almond, styled Frackowiak in bright prints, lace and tulle gowns and pretty embroidered frocks.
The highlight of the shoot is the bevy of butterflies that float around Frackowiak, caressing her fingertips and the top of her head. Alexi Lubomirsk photographed Frackowiak and her winged friends in romantic, soft-focus lighting.
Hair and Make up are done by Alain Pichon and Polly Osmond respectively.
This editorial will definitely give you butterflies ... ♥
