Model Turned Masterpiece: Elle UK Poses Martina With Sticks, Tools, A Watermelon



elle-uk-masterpieces-british-elle-1

With all the high-glamour glitz out there (hey Balmain, we're blaming you), a girl might start to get fed up with sequined dresses and late-night parties, and instead dream about wrapping her hair up in a pillowcases and chopping some wood. Not you? Us neither, really—but these Elle UK editorial, starring a milk-fed Martina Correa and shot by Matthias Vriens, are so idyllic that we're thinking about trading in our platform heels for a long-handled axe. In a delicate Stella McCartney lace dress, and a Louis Vuitton blouse and skirt, the stiff-armed Martina looks positively Vermeer-esque. Does this mean we're going to choose to look pastoral instead of punk from now on? Probably not, but if you ever catch us posing with a watermelon in Whole Foods, you know what we're doing.
