You already know how much we appreciate our talented artists and we love to follow their work, so it’s not rare to mention some of them in our articles more than once. That’s the case with Kristina Makeeva. We introduced this Russian photographer with her magical Moscow photo series and not so long ago blown you away with her fashion portraits and fabulous dresses. This time, Makeeva took us to Paris. Lera Borodina, the Ukrainian founder of high-end dress rental service, Oh My Look! was looking to mark the opening of her first showroom in Russia with a photo shoot that brought to life every feminine dream. Naturally, Makeeva, with her dreamy visions, was a perfect choice, and Paris the only right destination. With more than 3000 dresses to choose from, the results of the shooting range from light and playful to grand and elegant. Makeeva and her team visited 11 locations over two days of shooting, while Ukrainian pop-singer, television presenter and actress Vera Brezhneva changed dresses 12 times. Now, we leave you to enjoy in our favorite picks and for more Makeeva’s magic proceed to her website and Instagram Page.
