2 blocks south is an australian streetwear label. these latest shots for their ad campaign feature models marte and sam andrea (!!! i still get excited when i see my name anywhere in any incarnation...), and shot by photographer marijke aerden.
i think the shots have been beautifully styled--the monochrome doesn't take away from any of the pictures. they are still edgy, compelling and very sexy. in fact, these pictures remind me of another high-gloss monochromatic photoshoot--the grayscale is balanced out by the high saturation of the images. SO AMAZING, the models just pop off of the screen.
and speaking of going south...

i mean, why even bother with makeup when everything gets edited to within an inch of its life!?!?!? i can see how erasing blemishes is a good thing to have, dont get me wrong, but it seems even my untrained (albeit critical) eye can spot the following enhancements:
- unusually alabaster skin (i mean its not like she's cate blanchett/anne hathaway...)
- extremely full and glossy jetblack hair
- a wrinkle-free neck and fingers...oh yea, and FACE
- cleavage!!!!! though i must admit the edits in that department look fabulous.
that's what happens when ashton kutcher posts pictures to his twitter account.
