Kelsey in Pink, for SWAK
How wonderful to see Michael Anthony Hermogeno shooting for Sealed with a Kiss again, capturing the beauty of Kelsey Olson in his own inimitable way.
I absolutely adore this picture of Kelsey in pink - so much in pink - with a fair complexion, and with her hair tied back in a scarf, reminding one of Grace Kelly. The puppy in the satchel is adorable. And look how the green accessory plays off against all the pinkness.
Michael also shot Kelsey in a more... daring way, allowing her to flaunt her seductiveness. Just imagine the colours of the photo, above, as applied to this steamy picture:
I love the hair-over-the-face style, which is highly alluring. Kelsey's expression is a touch wounded, which makes her seem vulnerable and heightens her beauty.
The same image full size.
And as a bonus, here's a brief behind-the-scenes video from Instagram. Watch, near the end, how Kelsey leans toward the mirror and allows her eyes to enlarge to their true saucer-like hugeness. Those baby-blue Disney-princess eyes are a miracle of beauty.
And finally, this image appeared in my Inbox as part of SWAK's latest e-mail ad. What I love about this label is that neither the stylist nor the photographer try to compress Kelsey's luscious waist, but allow it to be shown in all its natural beauty.
Kelsey and Michael have always created magic together. I can't wait for their next major lookbook for Sealed with a Kiss.

Re: Kelsey in Pink, for SWAK
At last, here are the results of SWAK's most recent shoot with Kelsey Olson, a new lookbook photographed by Michael Anthony Hermogeno, called American Summer.
It's a clever promo, showing Kelsey against a host of backdrops representing different areas of the United States.
The most enchanting is the first, showing Miss Olson looking angelically pretty in pink, with that oh-so-cute cute puppy in a basket. Kelsey's expression, though, is even more adorable. The hair scarf is such an elegant accessory- a '50s look, definitely, especially with Kelsey's traditionally all-American look (i.e., a North European look).
The Hawaiian image is enchanting, showing Kelsey with a flower in her hair and swaying her arms, as if to the tune of hula music. Those huge, blue, Disney-princess eyes are so beautiful.
These pastels are enchanting on Kelsey, with her blonde hair, and her pose is priceless. The kissy-face look is actually very attractive, as it brings out the model's coquettish, flirtatious side. Kelsey has a great sense of whimsy, as her behind-the-scenes videos show. The blossom in her hair is a magical touch.
I love how Sealed with a Kiss worked in subtle touches of gourmandizing in some of the photos, like the cotton candy in the previous picture and the lobster in this image. Nice print on the blouse.
This fuchsia pink is a vivid hue, so appropriate for summer fun. By showing off some leg, Kelsey gives the outfit a playful touch of allure.
Everyone at the Judgment of Paris loves this shade of purple, of course, which looks terrific on the model.
Another page at the SWAK site features the images of the campaign in isolation, without text, in which condition they look every bit as lovely as they do in the published campaign.
It's so wonderful to see Kelsey shooting with Michael Anthony once again, a team that is renowned for countless masterpieces. I hope the pairing continues.
Oh, and be sure to click on the links to see the images full size at the SWAK site, and to view the outfits as product pages.
