The American Beauty shoot in Schön! Magazine’s 19th issue is less a celebration of the film of the same title and more a Technicolor carnival in honor of extraordinary American model Ashley Smith. Photographed by Naomi Yang and styled by Jessica Bobince, the shoot features an abundance of luxurious brands and glistening fine jewellery styled to be as outrageous as the most lavish American beauty queens. This impression is compounded by the rich makeup and hairspray-heavy hair by Chris Colbeck and Benoit Moeyaert at Art Department. Smith’s gleaming dragonfly-green nails are courtesy of manicurist Maki Sakamoto.

Show business can be a very dirty yet sexy place. No one knows this better than the people who are a part of it. In the ‘Director’ editorial by American photographer Columbine Goldsmith, the director gets down and dirty with some of the men and women working in the industry, asking them personal questions as they pose in beautiful dresses, corsets, tops, skirts, trousers and lingerie by Vivienne Westwood, Louis Vuitton, Gaurav Gupta, Alpana Neeraj, Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, Diesel Black Gold, BCBG Max Azria and Oscar de la Renta. To complete their looks, fashion stylist Brett Bailey adds accessories by Christian Dior, Swarovski, Jeremy Scott and PRB Studio to the mix.

The artistic photography duo Pablo Estévez and Javier Belloso plays with visions of sexual anticipation in the high-end glamour editorial, ‘Anticipation’. Fashion model Masha Kirsanova adopts the role of two different characters, one as a sensual blonde and the other as a seductive black-haired vixen, to give the sexy theme a different twist. Styled by José Herrera, the role-playing beauty looks stunning in dresses by Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci and Christian Dior with oversized gold jewels by Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo and Chanel completing her looks. It is an alluring photo shoot that portrays the different emotions associated with sexual fantasies and expectations.
