Photographed by world-renowned Paul de Luna for the South China Morning Post‘s Style Magazine, this dark, ethereal shoot take place in Paris to a symphony of rich rose petals, soft sunlight, and dark shadows.
The combination of sheer nude mesh over sultry lingerie forms a stark contrast to the heavenly gold eyeshadow and halo of romantic roses.

I love this shot on the banks of the Seine. If there is any better way to capture Paris’ untameable sense of  dark noir and romantic nostalgia, I don’t know what it is.
