MALEFICENT // STILISTEN winter 2013 by Elizaveta Porodina

Today as I was going through the Net, trying to decide on my next post on Fashion photography, guess whose work caught my attention once again…It was Eizaveta Porodina‘s latest project! Yes, and this girl never ceases to amaze me. Elizaveta, for this specific project, drew her inspiration from ”Maleficent”; an upcoming 2014 dark fantasy film starring Angelina Jolie.

But who is Maleficent really? Let’s get to know a bit more about this character. Maleficent is a fictional character and the main antagonist in Walt Disney’s 1959 film Sleeping Beauty. She is the self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil” who, after not being invited to a royal christening, curses the infant Princess Aurora to “prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die” before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday. The character is Disney’s adaptation of the wicked fairy godmother from the original French fairy tale.

Elizaveta captured the very essence of this villain and expressed it in a more than satisfactory manner. Maleficent is perceived by Elizaveta as mean, fierce, dark, occult and notably ravishing. One can see all these traits unfolding in her project. She accomplishes it by using the right lighting, background, by creating the appropriate dark atmosphere and last but not least, by picking the right model for the job. Her model, Laura O’Grady, has absolutely embraced, literally ”dressed” the character.
