BLAST FROM BAROQUE For MANIAC Magazine, Styled by me: Kelsey Panicco

Pastels, Bodices, Brocade Print; everything Baroque. Be the queen of your bureau this Spring, and study back to the late 17th century royal era, for opulent inspiration and ornamental details of one of this seasons most popular, unique trends.

For the editorial of the May/June issue of  MANIAC Magazine, my inspiration came from one of my most favorite trends of this season, Pastel Baroque. We shot on my rooftop in Lower East Side, which  provided the perfect grungy-urban backdrop, to balance out the glamorous looks fit for a modern queen. We shot the beautiful Elena Kuletskaya of FORD Models, with Hair by Nicole Blais, and Makeup by Roberto Casey. Photography by Editor-in-Chief, April Hubal.
