Scary Beautiful

On assiste a une période ou la beauté n'est pas juste un attribut physique, mais plutôt une manière individuelle de s'exprimer, de ne pas subir le temps, de se faire remarquer, en faite. La beauté est devenue une provocation, est s'exprime de manière très différente. Pour Leanie Der Vyver, c'est une defiance de la nature, notre course contre le temps n'est pour lui qu'une manière grossière de défier l'ordre naturelle, et ces photo sont sa manière de nous le le prouver. Il est vrai que j'ai rarement vue des photo plus maladroite ou qui me mettait aussi mal à l'aise. J'ai mal au jambes rien qu'en regardant marcher cette jolie blonde et il y a quelque chose de très animalesque dans sa posture qui, pour une raison inconnu, m'effraie. Si le but de Leanie Der Vyver était de rendre l'observateur nerveux ce que le corps humain ne devrait pas faire est donc en créant une métaphore énorme, message reçu. 

We are witnissing a periode where beauty is no longer a simple physical attribute, but rather an individual way of expressing one self, of never ondergoing time and a perfect way to get noticed, a search for apparent perfection. Today, beauty is a highly provacative way to express ones individuality and ones imaginary perfection. For Leanie Der Vyver, it is a way to defy nature, our race against time is going against the natural  order of things, and our quest to perfection is a sin. 
I have rarely seen such awkward or uncomfortable pictures. My legs hurt just watching this pretty model walk, there is something very animalesque in her posture that frightens me for some reason. And if Leanie Der Vyver's goal was to show exactly what human body shouldn't do and therefore create a giant metaphor, I think he made his point quite clear.

  7. "And if Leanie Der Vyver's goal was to show exactly what human body shouldn't do and therefore create a giant metaphor, I think he made his point quite clear"
    I really hope that that was hes goal cause this is really awkward, beautiful, scary and shocking at the same time.

  8. so scary but indeed so beautiful. i like how leanie is pushing the boundaries of what we will consider beautiful. it's like much of fashion today that has gone beyond being clothing and become art and our bodies and comfort have gotten lost in the shuffle. beautiful post!

  9. I cannot imagine wearing these shoes and looks as comfy as this model seems to be. It's more like art to me.

    have an inspiring day

  10. Wow, it certainly looks painful to walk in those. They are definitely an interesting design! I applaud the model for being able to walk in them haha! :D

  11. This is just bizarre. But I kind of like it :) The pictures are beautiful and the angles are as well. But there is something about it that screams "torture." LOL! It looks rather painful as well. But as you said it really is scary beautiful.

  13. I commend that model for even trying those shoes. Scary indeed but still she pretty much toughed it out. But personally, that's not something I'd sacrifice I guess. Dangerous!

    Hope we can follow each other. Following you in Google Friend Connect (Chai) and Bloglovin' (^_^)

  33. C'est vraiment étrange... Ce ne doit pas être évident de se déplacer en plus !! Mais au moins ça change de l'ordinaire :)

  34. These are kind of unsettling and a little bit insane. They remind me of exaggerated pointe shoes but with a dash of S&M.
