Inspired by the fearless and fabulous Carolina Herrera woman, Wes Gordon partners with Elizaveta Porodina on painterly images merging bold colors and timeless beauty in a cinematic style.
The sophistication and modern femininity of the American luxury fashion house Carolina Herrera is captured in this evocative and vividly hued volume photographed by Elizaveta Porodina. A collaborative series of images, the first chapter of which was created in 2020 over Zoom, feature Porodina’s signature timeless, painterly style—an effect achieved through complex lighting techniques and equipment— capture the brand’s evolving collections designed by Creative Director Wes Gordon in a dreamy, otherworldly light.
Inspired by dance, movement and the Herrera signature of bold color, this mesmerizing tome is flooded with photography of models and dancers in motion to reflect the vibrant energy and optimism of the clothing, arranged according to the chroma wheel instead of chronologically. Ethereal beauties, including singer and actress Dove Cameron, dancers Wendy Wheelan and Misa Kuranaga, and models Maggie Maurer and Mao Xing Xing, wear sweeping ballgowns, bold, saturated colors and dramatic silhouettes across ten collections designed by Wes Gordon over the past four years, capturing the fantastical universe of Beauty that is Carolina Herrera.
