Wendy Bevan Circus Act.

Just when I thought I couldn't like Wendy Bevan any more than I already did, she went and did the most stupendous (and my favorite) work she's ever done: vintage circus photography. I love vintage all across the boards, but if there's one event I have a special affinity for it's vintage circuses. There's just something extra sweet about those intricate costumes that get me all giddy inside, and this time they were modern creations of all those vintage styles I love! Shot for Italian Marie Claire (S/S 2010), this is hands down my favorite editorial of the year so far.







And as if these didn't cause me to be featherbrained enough, there was even more excitement when I discovered the short film to match. I needed this film inspiration in a bad way, and who better to provide it than Wendy Bevan herself.
