Adriana Lima in Elle September 2003, My All-Time Favorite Editorial

 

I first fell truly madly deeply in love with fashion through magazines. Glossy pages, awe-inspiring editorials, jaw-droppingly gorgeous models. It’s a deep and unending love. Then there came blogs, with their pedestrian perspective and daily content right at your fingertips. I love them too. My favorite thing ever though? A combination of the two. My favorite thing ever is when magazines shoot realistic editorials, like a day in the life of a ridiculously stylish individual who happens to look like a model. Basically this editorial.

This, dear readers, is my favorite editorial of all time. No matter how many new magazines I read, no matter how many phases my style goes through, no matter how many trends come and go, this editorial is the one I come back to time and time again. It might be because I’d wear every single look, it might be the menswear-inspired sensibility (imagine sharing clothes with him!), the timeless palette of black, grey, and army green, or it could just be that Adriana Lima is a babe and a half. You’ll notice the arm partiescamo printbaseball caps, and sneakers – all topics I’ve since blogged about. Whatever it is, it has captivated me for 9 years and counting.

Yes! 9 Years! This editorial is from the September Issue of Elle, 2003 (don’t believe me? just check out the flip phone he has around his neck!). And this isn’t the first time it has appeared here on Fuji Files. I posted it before and chances are I’ll post it again when I feel so inclined!Do you all have a favorite editorial of all time? I’d love to see it 🙂
