I know I haven't blogged too much lately, but this time I have a very good excuse for it, besides my crazy RL and all the Nailed It releases for the different events. That reason is Versus Magazine Spring Issue where I have collaborated again with the Versus Team to do the article layouts and some other sections layouts for this beautiful and romantic issue showcasing the designs of some of the best SL fashion designers, based on the actual Spring 2014 RL runway trends.
I did 3 pictures and stylings for the Romantic Brocade Section. It is no secret I love brocades and those who know me well know that I am beyond romantic and sensitive to the extreme, so this trend was definitely perfect for me.

I did also shoot a picture for Versus Latest Releases, where stylists showcase the newest creations from their favourite designers. Of course I chose my favourite brand, Baiastice and Tania Tebaldi who is also graphic designer for the magazine was kind enough to join me for a crazy picture wearing some of Sissy Pessoa's latest shinies. Thank you Tania!!

Besides my pictures, if you read Versus Magazine Spring Issue you will find a lot of inspiring ideas to prepare your wardrobe for this wonderful season that has already started. I really need to congratulate all the Versus stylists for their amazing sense of fashion and of course for the extremely beautiful pictures.

But there is much more!! We also included a Wedding Special with different ideas for every kind of bride, from dark goth to high couture along with vintage, delicate and of course classic white brocade gowns. Make sure you check our spread before you choose your wedding gown or you may be changing your very special dress last minute, overwhelmed by all the different choices.
Of course we also included Versus usual spreads dedicated to Accessories and Beauty. A beauty section filled with natural skins, short hairs and metallic makeups and an Accessories section, sponsored by the amazing Kunglers, where we showcase all the possible beadings, metals and shining gems to say goodbye to minimalisms for good.
A magazine needs something more than beautiful pictures, and that’s when our amazing writers Lissabel Lorefield and Sita Writer become the stars of the show. I am honored to work with these two incredible ladies, who are capable of putting into words things that could not be expressed only with pictures.
My favourite article this month is of course the interview to Sissy Pessoa made by Lissa. I personally requested this interview to be made, because even though some other magazines have interviewed Sissy before she never had the chance to actually answer the questions from an Italian journalist, where she would be able to let her real self shine through in her mother tongue. This is certainly the portrait of a Lady! Thank you Lissa.
We have also paid a visit to the extremely beautiful NevaRiver Sim by Neva Crystal, we interviewed the force behind Menswear Fashion Week, Marina and Jaylin from Aphrodite Shop and Heart Homes shared with Versus not only their stunning creations but also their love for each other and SL. Last but, by all means not least, we sat with Kryptonia and Seashell from SCALA who shared with us a cup of coffee along with their point of view about fashion nowadays and their unique way to handle a business in a way no one has ever done before.
But to read all that you will have to click on the link below and read the whole Bible … I mean Magazine! and its 380 pages of awesomeness. BTW Absinthe, this is the best cover picture EVER MADE, you simply rock!!
Even though it's time for me to step out of Versus due to RL commitments I want to thank all the Versus Staff for their amazing work, I honestly think we managed to put together two amazing numbers that I feel like the best fashion magazines on the grid, so keep up with the good job, I will be watching you!!!
